I am delighted to list this - the first Debian package for any Linux system based on the Debian packaging system. By installing the package, the program will be listed in your repoistory and the main Menu with an icon, meaning you can launch the program from the menu or by simply typing 'quickhash' into your terminal. I am hoping that with a little refining, the package might be included as part of the official Debian Linux distribution. But for now, please use and report any general issues ( or use the Bug Tracker (

To install, download the tar file and extract all of the contents to a folder. Then either double click the deb package if you are using a graphical Linux system or, in the terminal, cd to the folder and then execute the following command :

$> sudo dpkg -i quickhash_2.7.0-1_amd64.deb

Great thanks are expressed to Dareal Shinji ( for helping me with this, specifically the GitHub thread that can be found here.
