One Comment on “Install Fotoxx 16.02 Photo Editor on Linux”

  1. Help needed:
    Just installed Fotoxx 15.2.1 via Ubuntu Software Center, except for the fotoxx-maps module.
    Tried to find an installer for it with no success.
    The web site seems also to be on Xmass holidays.
    Is there a better way to get the map module for fotoxx? Please let me know.
    Cheers. Gerd
