No version for Ubuntu 16.04.

Sometimes you can install a version for a previous release but not in this case.

sudo apt-get install screencloud

Hi, guys,
temporary fix for the issue:
1 Add to your /etc/apt/sources.list
deb http://cz.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu wily main universe
(change cz.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu to a necessary server).
2 Do apt-get install libqtmultimediakit1.
3 Install (or reinstall) Screencloud.
4 Remove or comment line with this repo in your sources list.

Thank you @JarrenceMelie that procedure worked!

For those trying you can use any archive locale url (ex. deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu wily main universe)

Still not working for me, needs a lot of dependencies:

` screencloud : Depends: libqt4-designer (>= 4:4.5.3) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: libqt4-svg (>= 4:4.5.3) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: libqxt-core0 but it is not going to be installed
Depends: libqxt-gui0 but it is not going to be installed
Depends: libquazip0 but it is not installable or
libquazip1 but it is not going to be installed

Tried -f install, but when i try to launch i get this:
ฮป mats Downloads โ†’ screencloud /opt/screencloud/screencloud: error while loading shared libraries: libquazip.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


@zerocool42 same error here, that procedure worked:

sudo sh -c "echo 'deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/olav-st/xUbuntu_15.10/ /' >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/screencloud.list"
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install screencloud

That didn't work for me:

W: GPG error: http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/olav-st/xUbuntu_15.10  Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 1BE1E8D7A2B5E9D5
W: The repository 'http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/olav-st/xUbuntu_15.10  Release' is not signed.
N: Data from such a repository can't be authenticated and is therefore potentially dangerous to use.
N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details.

I really hope @olav-st will be able to update this soon. It's really a must have for me at this point. :)

You can download the package here (links at the bottom of the page).

  1. wget http://de.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/q/qtmobility/libqtmultimediakit1_1.2.0-1ubuntu2_amd64.deb
  2. sudo dpkg -i libqtmultimediakit1_1.2.0-1ubuntu2_amd64.deb
  3. sudo apt-get install -f

I'm very happy OMG Ubuntu wrote about how to install Screencloud: http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2016/06/force-install-screencloud-ubuntu-16-04

Hopefully such great publicity will be a boost to @olav-st :)
