GloudApp is a CloudApp client for Linux and GNOME2 based on GTK using the Ruby-GNOME2 bindings.

It hat equivalent features as the official OSX client allowing you to take and upload screenshots with only a single click and other files through a file chooser dialog.


Header files needed to build native gem extensions for gtk2 gem and dependencies (distribution specific package names; here: Ubuntu 11.04):

  • libgdk-pixbuf2.0-dev
  • libglib2.0-dev
  • libatk1.0-dev
  • libgtk2.0-dev
  • libpango1.0-dev

Then install the gloudapp gem:

sudo gem install gloudapp

(If you use rvm you should omit the 'sudo'.)


You could launch gloudapp (or place it in auto-start) via:


Then you will be prompted to provide your credentials (or not if you're already using cloudapp-cli on the same machine). A successful login gives you a new small but fine icon right in your notification bar which is sensitive for left clicking (take screenshot and upload) and right clicking (offering a popup menu with all other commands). After an upload the new URL will appear immediately be copied into the clipboard for easily pasting it somewhere. Have fun!


To Jan Graichen for all kinds of help especially his nice art work!
