Re: Quickshot 2.0 - Creating a PPA
On the link that Hannie provides, if you follow through the thread (or
read it in an email client), you'll see that Neil Tallim had offered to
help out in what ways he could with getting it running. Maybe if we
figure out what needs to be done to get it working on 13.10, we can ask
Neil for suggestions on how to make it happen.
I'll say that my Python experience has come from writing a couple of
limited scripts and from reading through the special Python issues at
Full Circle Magazine (plus their ongoing series on Python). That might
be something to check out, if you want to learn it.
Have a great day.:)
