Flickr Uploadr in Ubuntu

Finally got around to installing the official Flickr Uploadr on Ubuntu with Wine. The tricky part is that you have to use winetricks to install the MS Visual C++ 2005 runtime dlls, otherwise you get the XULRunner error, "Couldn't load XPCOM."

chmod +x FlickrUploadr-3.2.1-2009.06.02.01-en.exe
sudo apt-get install wine
wine FlickrUploadr-3.2.1-2009.06.02.01-en.exe
sh winetricks vcrun2005
wine "~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Flickr Uploadr/Flickr Uploadr.exe"
