A while ago, I blogged about installing ExifTool on Ubuntu. There's actually a much simpler way to do this. ExifTool is part of the standard packages directly available from the Ubuntu repositories so it can be installed in one line using
apt-get, no need for that
make malarkey I mentioned last time:
$ sudo apt-get install libimage-exiftool-perl
Et voilà, ExifTool installed and ready to go!
