Entangle is an open-source camera control tool which allows its users to take photos with a digital camera which is controlled by the computer. All the camera settings can be controlled through the Entangle tool. In this tutorial, we can see the process to install Entangle on Linux Mint 18.3
First, make sure you add the essential repository for the Entangle installation by making use of the following command.
linuxhelp ~ # add-apt-repository ppa:dhor/myway You are about to add the following PPA: Every photographer needs some tools... More info: https://launchpad.net/~dhor/+archive/ubuntu/myway Press Enter to continue or Ctrl+C to cancel Executing: /tmp/tmp.GLY098YNXX/gpg.1.sh --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 --recv-keys 93330B78 gpg: requesting key 93330B78 from hkp server keyserver.ubuntu.com gpg: key 93330B78: public key "Launchpad PPA for Dariusz Duma" imported gpg: Total number processed: 1 gpg: imported: 1 (RSA: 1)
Once it is done, you need to update the system repository in the following manner.
linuxhelp ~ # apt-get update Hit:1 http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu xenial InRelease Hit:2 http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu xenial InRelease Ign:3 http://packages.linuxmint.com sylvia InRelease Get:4 http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu xenial-updates InRelease [102 kB] Get:5 http://packages.linuxmint.com sylvia Release [24.2 kB] Get:6 http://packages.linuxmint.com sylvia Release.gpg [819 B] Get:7 http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu xenial-backports InRelease [102 kB] .

Now install the entangle using the following command
linuxhelp ~ # apt-get install entangle Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information...

Once it is done, you need to open your application, so go to Menu > Search > Entangle
