Install PosterGenius on Linux with no tears

A simple step-by-step guide to install PosterGenius on Linux (Ubuntu)

First of all you have to download our .deb package. The package for the moment is available for internal purposes only. But if anyone out there wants to try our early release of PosterGenius for Linux please let me know.

PosterGenius for linux will be available for free. Stay tuned, we will make it available to the public very soon.

Download
Download .deb package and save it in your hard drive.

Launch gdebi installer
I suggest the more user-friendly gtk version. Start a ternimal and type

sudo gdebi-gtk


The package installer will follow:


Point to .deb package
Use installer's File menu and point to .deb package of PosterGenius

Select PosterGenius .deb package and click "Open"

Click "Install Package"

Click "Close"

Launch PosterGenius

PosterGenius entry is available at "Applications > Graphics > Postergenius".

Hey Stavros. You guys have done amazing things with PosterGenius!!! I'm slowly struggling through my PhD and this package will help me greatly. It doen't help when the University uses Windows-based products and I cannot afford licensing. So, I do what I can at home...learning to use linux now.

I'd appreciate it if you could point me in the right direction for downloading the deb for linux. If you have any license for the windows version, I'd LOVE one! It would make life a little easier, as I can't afford to buy one at the moment.

Anyways, guys, incredible work! Much appreciated!!!
