Jalbum, create Photo web albums

This is the software I use to create my photo album on the web. I used it when I ran XP and was glad to see it came as a Linux option. It automatically creates the album in variety of skins and there is then an option to FTP the result direct from the program to your site. Visit the jalbum.net site and if you decide to user this program, download the DEB for Ubuntu.

JAlbum needs a Sun Java 1.5 (or later) virtual machine to run so first we need to open the [Synaptic Package Manager] search for and install sun-java6-jre or later, from the listed packages and install it.We then need to make sure it is the default Java VM running on your PC.

Open a [Terminal] type or copy and paste;

sudo update-alternatives --config java

which should give you an output like this;

There are 2 alternatives which provide `java’.
Selection Alternative
* 1 /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun/jre/bin/java
+ 2 /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk/jre/bin/java<
Press enter to keep the default[*], or type selection number:

Select java-6-sun by typing the number next to the correct version.

Now double click on the DEB file currently jalbum_8.12-1_all.deb and the Ubuntu Software Centre should open and allow you to install. once finished you should have an icon for jalbum in [Applications], [Graphics].
