BloGTK 2.0 Packages For Ubuntu 10.04 Released

As promised, I’ve uploaded a new Ubuntu package to the PPA that is compatible with Ubuntu 10.04. This package doesn’t have any new features, but does remove the dependency on the python-gnome2-extras package that was removed in Lucid.

The new package hasn’t been extensively tested, so file a bug report if there are any installation bugs.

UPDATE (6/14/10): A minor bug slipped in with the last update, so there’s a new package available on the PPA. It should be posted within the next few hours.

    Hi again,

    After leaving my comment here today asking about PPA’s, I checked my e-mail and found your very helpful message explaining how to add a PPA source, and finally download and install BloGTK. I did that, it’s up and running, and looking good.

    Thanks so much for a good program and the handholding to download the version I need.

    Hi my name’s Jesse and I have Ubuntu 10.04. I read you last post about creating a new uploading a version into the repos that’s not dependent on the gnome2 packages. My problem is, once installed, I can’t get your program to run correctly. Have you got any ideas why not? I know there could be a million reasons, so I’m just asking in general. What are some common bugs that could be affecting it?

    Blogtk fails to start on Ubuntu 10.04 after i installed the ppa version instead of the .tar with error not finding gkthtml12

  5. Paul W. Frields Says:

    Do you have any interest in collaborating on making BloGTK work with standard Python setuptools? This would help make BloGTK 2.0 more packageable for other Linux distributions and non-Linux operating systems.

    A, found it! .. little hard to find (via FAQ, not via Downloads). I couldn’t find the PPA adres on the LP page ( Or do i miss something?

    Hello, i use Linux Mint Debian Edition, and this distrib isn’t compatible with ubuntu, but is with debian. So do you have a package for debian or only for ubuntu ?

  8. Dan Says:

    Are you able to perhaps look in your sent items and forward me a copy of the guide to install Blogtk 2.0 that you wrote to S.W. Anderson June 16th, 2010 at 12:06 pm? I tried on Ubuntu 10.10 and then went back to 10.04 now and still having issues with it crashing on startup. I still have 2.0 installed but just crash. Sorry new to Linux also, I would appreciate any help at all as I cannot stand using Blogilo, it reminds me too much of Windows and Microsoft makes me depressed. Thanks in advance

    Ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS
    Python 2.6.5. Standart libs
    Install blogtk from the standard repository
    When run from console:

    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File “/usr/bin/blogtk”, line 14, in
    import gtkhtml2
    ImportError: No module named gtkhtml2

    apt-file search gtkhtml2 – without result

    How to fix

    Best regard,

    Can BloGTK be used to maintain multiple blogs? For instance, if I have a blog on Blogger and another on WordPress, can I use BloGTK to create entries offline for both blogs? Also, can I set up BloGTK account settings for use with multiple blogs? Thanks.

  11. Jon Wright Says:

    I hope you continue with the functionality of being able to add images when offline and uploading them all when saving the draft or posting.

    The only blogging app I’ve been able to use, WordPy for Maemo, was able to do this but unfortunately my Maemo device has died.

    I’ve recently started writing a WordPress plugin to be installed on a local WordPress instance that uploads a copy of the post to the main remote WordPress blog. The results are satisfactory but the need to always have WordPress running locally makes it kind of cludgy.

    So, the project’s abandoned.
