ImageShack Uploader

In the past, when I needed to host pictures somewhere, I would always use Photobucket. However, in the last 6 months, they have made it quite clear, that they will no longer be supporting Linux.

I don’t like that…I have since moved to a more Linux friendly image host, ImageShack.

Not only does ImageShack support Linux, they have their ImageShack Uploader available for use in Linux. AND IT’S NATIVE GTK! I have been using it and I quite like it. However, it can be a pain in the butt to install for us 64Bit users. The .DEB will allow you to install the software, but if you run it through the terminal, you will see that the program segment faults. The reason that this is happening is because the scripting is looking for 32Bit libraries, not 64Bit. Here’s how we fix this.

First you will need to get a program called getlibs.

Next you will need to run this command in the terminal:
getlibs /usr/bin/imageshack-uploader

At this point, you should be able to run the ImageShack Uploader.
