I just finished doing a clean install of Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. The reason? I felt like I might have corrupted my computer in some way when I did a previous attempt of installing Corel AfterShot Pro 3. The tutorial below is designed to help anyone install this application on Ubuntu Linux so they can avoid the mistake I made (which had to do with downloading the wrong file from Corel). Note that this applies to Ubuntu 18.04 LTS and AfterShot Pro 3.
When I first tried installing this program in August 2018, there was no official documentation on Corel’s website. That seems to have changed in these four months, and there is now an article up on Corel’s support website that explains how to install this program in a small number of steps. I personally find this YouTube video made by Corel much more helpful in showing how to set up this application. That is what I used to successfully install this application on the first try. I wanted to make this process even easier for others and me in the future by including this detailed tutorial based on the YouTube video.
To install AfterShot Pro 3, follow these steps:
- Download this file from your Corel order email: AfterShotPro3-system-Qt.deb
- Make sure the file saved to your Downloads directory
- Open the application Terminal
- In Terminal type the following commands, making sure Terminal finishes before entering each one (do not type steps in italics verbatim; they are instructions):
- cd Downloads/
- sudo apt update
- Enter your password
- sudo dpkg -i AfterShotPro3-system-Qt.deb
- sudo apt -f install
- Close Terminal
Congratulations, it should be successfully installed! Open the application the way you would normally open applications. If you ordered the full version, you will be asked to enter your serial number.
