ClipGrab released an update, which I am unable to update, I've downloaded the package but it's not deb and I'm having issues after extracting the file, not sure how to install it! has anyone successfully updated Clipgrab 3.1.0.2 using the source code? I'm so confused!

http://clipgrab.de/en#linux

ricochet@ricochet-Satellite-L305:~$ cd ~/Downloads ricochet@ricochet-Satellite-L305:~/Downloads$ chmod +x clipgrab-3.1.0.2-1 chmod: cannot access clipgrab-3.1.0.2-1': No such file or directory ricochet@ricochet-Satellite-L305:~/Downloads$

I'm assuming you downloaded the package from this website? Make sure you download the package clipgrab-3.1.0.2.bz2 - you can find this under the option "Show All Available Options"

It should open in Archive Manager. Extract it to your Downloads folder.

Then in a terminal:

cd ~/Downloads
chmod +x clipgrab-3.1.0.2

Then you can start it:

./clipgrab-3.1.0.2

...

or you could just add the current clipgrab PPA

and install via

sudo apt-get install clipgrab

If you have the PPA already installed, then run the Update Manager to get the latest version.

As an aside - remember, sometimes you may have to wait a few days for the maintainers of the PPA to update with the latest version.

hmm, yep that is the correct website I downloaded from. here's what I get when I enter the command: ricochet@ricochet-Satellite-L305:~$ cd ~/Downloads ricochet@ricochet-Satellite-L305:~/Downloads$ chmod +x clipgrab-3.1.0.2-1 chmod: cannot access clipgrab-3.1.0.2-1': No such file or directory ricochet@ricochet-Satellite-L305:~/Downloads$ the file is there though... –  ricochet Aug 15 '11 at 22:17
    
yep I extracted the file. –  ricochet Aug 15 '11 at 22:25
    
what was the result of ls -l ? –  fossfreedom Aug 15 '11 at 22:28
    
the result of ls -l is in the question now. (sorry I'm a noob, but I appreciate the help very much!) –  ricochet Aug 15 '11 at 22:29
    
I dont think you are actually in the Downloads folder - see my answer - cd ~/Downloads then ls -l - you can copy and paste this text. Its a lowercase "L" for ls and lowercase "L" for -l –  fossfreedom Aug 15 '11 at 22:32
