Downloading Flickr Sets on GNU/Linux


Looking to download your Flickr images on GNU/Linux? I was able to use this solution to download my images as sets (images were placed in folders). Per the blog author, Andrea Grandi:
I simply had no time to write an application by myself, so I started searching on Google to see if there was something available to do this simple task. At the beginning I only found abandoned tools (closed source, the API was expired ecc...), paid tools, Windows only tools ecc... but finally I found this post http://hivelogic.com/articles/backing-up-flickr/There is a Python script that automatically downloads all your Flickr pictures getting the highest resolution available, you can download the script from here https://github.com/dan/hivelogic-flickrtouchrThe usage is very simple?

mkdir FlickrBackupFolder
python flickrtouchr.py FlickrBackupFolder
A browser's window will be opened and you'll be prompted for authorization. After that, all you pictures will be downloaded.
Anyways, the next step is to setup a digital photo frame for family. Any recommendations?
