flickr upload for gnome's nautilus

This evening I noticed that there was a new perl module in CPAN by CPB Flickr::Upload. So I hacked together a Nautilus script to integrate Flickr.com uploads with the Gnome file manager.

If you want to give it a try,

* Install the perl module Flickr::Upload using either CPAN or download from http://search.cpan.org/~cpb/
* Grab this script
* put it in your ~/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts directory
* edit the following lines for your own use:


my $FLICKREMAIL = 'your-flickr@email-address-here.com';
my $FLICKRPASSWORD = 'somesekretword';
my $FLICKRTAGS = 'i like traffic lights'; # space separated list


It works find on my debian/sarge laptop, but should work fine on any other gnome desktop.

Patches would be welcome.

  4. This little script is awesome! It took me a while to grab all the dependencies (and their dependencies), but it works like a charm now.

  8. Hi, nice script but since Flickr has joined forces with Yahoo, it seems their login procedure has changed and this script no longer works. Will you be updating it? I wish I had the skills to do it...

  9. Alek, I don't know. All I really did was put a little nautilus wrapper around the perl that did all the hard work.

    I've been using the java-based jUploadr lately.

  13. I havn't a clue what to do with the perl script. So your script won't be of any help.

  14. I no longer use my nautilus upload script so if flickr.com changes something, it may no longer work.

    My prefered way to upload photos is through the f-spot photo managing package or occasionally the Java-based jUploadr tool which is pretty nice.

  18. Looks like the script has vanished. Nothing to see here people. Move on.

  19. After four years the code has been afflicted with code rot.

    There are many other, better tools to upload your photos to Flickr. I use f-spot almost exclusively to upload mine
