Updating Tumblr Blog in Ubuntu


Hi Doriswneil,

Yes you can handle your Tumblr blog from your Ubuntu without the use of a web browser. That would be using Grumblr. With Grumblr you can choose to post text, links, chat logs, audio and video files and also upload photos to your Tumblr blog right from your Ubuntu desktop.

The installation process of Grumblr is not the familiar way. First you need to install some dependencies to your system by opening your terminal and typing:

  • $ sudo apt-get install ruby rubygems ruby-dev libxml2-dev zlib1g-dev libgtk2.0-dev.

This will install every dependency you need and then you’ll need to install Grumblr and add it to your menus by  opening the terminal and entering the following command:

  • $ sudo gem install grumblr
  • $ CD /var/lib/gems/1.8/gems/grumblr-2.4.2
  • $ sudo ruby ./setup.rb

Below is a screen shot of the application:
