In this post I’ll list and give installation instructions for the media applications that I have found most useful on my Linux Mint desktop. That should cover photo management, video and music.
1. Photo Organizer
OK, this may come as a surprise to some, but if I were you… I’d ditch F-Spot! Really, just uninstall it. There’s a much better application that actually works, and it’s called Shotwell!! It is the default photo organizer in Fedora 13.
I really like the Shotwell project, it does what it’s supposed to do, and it does it well. There’s also a very helpful on-line manual.
