Giver Makes Transfer of Files Easier On A Linux Network By farshad on
Feb 14 2011
Giver is a simple file sharing desktop application for Ubuntu Linux
users. It automatically detects other users running Giver on a network
and allows sending files and folders to them via simple drag and drop.
There is no need to learn about complex network file sharing
procedures. Anyone on the network can send files by dragging and
dropping a file or folder next to the icon and name of a computer user
visible on the main interface.
After Giver is installed, it shows you other computers on the network
that have it installed as well, along with their computer name, IP and
picture (provided the user has set one using Gravatar).
The first issue with Giver is a missing .so file that prevents it from working. This can be fixed by installing libx11-dev (11.10/11.04/12.04)
sudo apt-get install libx11-dev
For Ubuntu 11.10/12.04 besides the above issue, there's another issue that prevents Giver from working (it occurs for all applications that still use Mono runtime 2.0 instead of To fix this, run the command below:
sudo gedit /usr/share/applications/giver.desktop
And under "Exec", replace "giver" with the following:
/usr/bin/mono --runtime=v4.0 /usr/lib/giver/Giver.exe
