Starry Hope Uploader Linux Facebook

For all of you Facebook users running Linux, you may have been frustrated with the sketchy support for uploading pictures. There may be several issues you run into that drive you insane: crashing your browser, not letting your see the pictures before you upload them, and various other bugs associated with each new version of your browser, OS, or Java. 

You may be left feeling let down. Just because you are a Linux user does not mean that you shouldn't be able to have the same Facebook features as all of your fellow Windows users. This is where Starry Hope Uploader comes in. The programmer had the same desolate feelings, and so decided to create this wonderful program which solved this problem.

Starry Hope Uploader is a simple tool designed to follow the old UNIX philosophy, “do one thing and do it well.” It has a simple interface that allows “drag and drop” capabilities, meaning you can have Nautilus open in one window, and Starry Hope Uploader in another, and drag the picture icons into the uploader.

It supports uploading to existing albums, as well as creating new albums. At this time, it does not support creating captions for photos, but since it is a maintained program, perhaps this feature will be added in the future.


There is a PPA available for Ubuntu users. To install:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:jimjimovich/starry-hope-uploader

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install starry-hope-uploader

Overall, Starry Hope Uploader is a great utility for Linux/Ubuntu users and I highly recommend it. Check out there homepage for more information.
