Installing Rapid Photo Downloader 0.9.36

Tip: If you installed Rapid Photo Downloader using the old script, you must first uninstall it using the tool below, then reinstall it using your system's standard package management tools:

Ubuntu 22.04 and 23.10

For stable releases, add the PPA:

To install pre-release versions in addition to stable releases, add the testing PPA instead (the command should be entered on one line):

Pre-release versions are generally quite stable, but might have the odd issue from time-to-time.

sudo apt upgrade

If installing for the first time, install it:
