How to install Fotoxx 17.08.3 Photo Editor on Ubuntu 16.04, 17.04, 17.10

   Fotoxx is a free Linux program for editing photos or other images and managing a large collection. Image directories (folders) can be viewed as a scrolling gallery of thumbnail images. Navigating directories and subdirectories is simple and fast. Click on a thumbnail for a full window view of the image. The image can be zoomed, panned and scrolled using the mouse. Gallery thumbnails can vary from small to huge. Popup windows can be used to view multiple images at any scale. Galleries are also used to display image search results and albums.

Fotoxx 17.08.3 Changelog: 
  • Bugfix: user settings for video file types were not being saved. 
  • Bugfix: add missing popup diagnostic for libraw (RAW file) errors. Bugfix: check for hugin, not hugin-executor (recent change? distro diversity?).

Installation instructions:

   The GetDeb repository contains the latest packages of Fotoxx, available for Ubuntu 16.04,  Ubuntu 17.04 and derivatives.

1. Add the GetDeb repository via command:

$ sudo sh -c 'echo "deb $(lsb_release -sc)-getdeb apps" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/getdeb.list'

3. Running command update and install:
