FF Multi Converter
« on: March 16, 2019, 07:42:02 pm »
Found this great alternative to WinFF called FF Multi Converter. :D It's A LOT faster than WinFF.
*sudo add-apt-repository ppa:cteehayder/ffmulticonverter
*sudo apt-get update
*sudo apt-get install ffmulticonverter
I'm surprised it's not in the Synaptic repos by default. Let me know what anyone thinks if they try it.

Hmm that looks pretty cool .. testing it now.

There's no need to add the PPA in Peppermint 9, just download the .deb file from here
https://launchpad.net/~cteehayder/+archive/ubuntu/ffmulticonverter/+files/ffmulticonverter_1.8.0-dmo1-1ubuntu1_all.deb
and double-click it to install.

I'm a big fan of not adding PPA's where it's not necessary (or at least disabling them post install), specially where the owner isn't well known to you and therefore trusted..

Good idea. Did that.

Funny thing ... I just found out that FF Multi Converter depends on Libreoffice. I just unisntalled Libreoffice cuz it's become too damn slow as of Dec. 2019 and installed FreeOffice instead. But I did find this perfectly good replacement for FF Multi called Curlew https://sourceforge.net/projects/curlew/
