Ubuntu – How to install 4shared


My Linux is Edubuntu 12.04 LTS. After downloaded & installing successfully "desktop4shared-1.3_1-all" package, 4shared doesn't work on my platform.

Best Answer

The 4shared package has a LOT of dependencies (additional packages required to run), including Java and other Java libraries. If you install the .deb with Software Center or gdebi, all the dependencies should be automatically installed.

If not, or if your Ubuntu variant doesn't use Software Center, do this:

  1. Open a terminal with Ctrl-Alt-T.
  2. Type the following, one line at time, and enter your password whenever prompted:

    sudo dpkg -i desktop4shared-1.3_1-all.deb
    sudo apt-get -f install
  3. Go to the Launcher and type "4Shared" to start it:
