How to install QuickHash Gui in Xfce


#1

I did search for QuickHash in package-manager but could not find, so I downloaded the the zip file to my home folder from http://www.quickhash-gui.org/downloads/

2 dependencies were then required, both are in package-manager and are ‘ gdk-pixbuf2’ and ‘ruby-gdk_pixbuf2’

Then unziped the downloaded QuckHash. Opened the new file and ran ‘execute’ QuickHash-linux-x64 v2.6.9.2 (or the 32bit file as required)

Then I made a link using ‘edit applications’ Now this useful app. works fine.

QuickHash is an open-source Linux, Windows, and Apple Mac GUI that enables rapid selection & hashing of data such as files (individually or recursively), text, entire folder trees of files, and physical disks. The user can also compare various files either as a pair or entire folders.

It was designed for Linux, but it is also available for Windows and Apple Mac. MD5, SHA1, SHA256, SHA512 hash algorithms are available.

EDIT: apologies for the necroing…
