How to do simple file-sharing in Ubuntu

Image

Just use the indicator – or better still, just drag and drop onto the share-box. Simple!

To Install:

Get the deb from Launchpad

Save it to your Downloads folder.

Install the prerequisites:

sudo apt-get install libqjson0 libqxmlrpc1

Then install the deb:

cd ~/Downloads
sudo dpkg -i nitro*.deb

Fire up the dash and search for “Nitroshare” and follow the wizard.  Repeat this for your other computers.

Heck – those computers can be virtually any distro e.g. fedora, mint, arch.  Even Windows and PowerPC are supported.
