PhotoGrabber for Facebook - Mac, Windows, and Linux
When I saw the announcement of PhotoGrabber for Facebook, I decided to give it a try--on Peppermint ICE (UbuntuLinux distro). You can certainly download and install the easy to use PhotoGrabber on your Mac or Windows machine, but I was curious if there was a Linux section...sure enough, there was!
- Install the following software:
sudo apt-get install subversion python python-tk
- Then run the following command:
svn checkout http://photograbber.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/ photograbber-read-only
- Change into the photograbber directory/folder created above:
- Run the program:
That took all of 5 minutes, if that, at the command line.
Here's what it looks like as it's going through the work of grabbing your Facebook photos....
|When you click on the "I want to download" button, it takes you to Facebook so you can grant rights.|
|Click ALLOW button (doesn't appear in screenshot)|
|Copy the code that appears in the box above then paste it into PhotoGrabber dialog box.|
|Note the list of people from your Facebook....|
Once the download is complete, you'll be able to open your pictures in folders...I've tried to represent different folders here without too many people's names:
That's pretty much it! Very easy! Much better than the web-based app I recommended earlier!
