On artful, after installing libavutil and libwscale, I had a bunch of unmet dependencies.

sudo gdebi clickshare_01.07.01-79_amd64.deb

was able to resolve them all and install.

sudo gdebi clickshare_01.07.01-79_amd64.deb Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Reading state information...

i did all of the steps you wrote but the program does not recognize the clickshare button. The button is not blinking constantly.
What i have to do next?

i am using ubuntu mate 17.10

@foot3print

tried this on 18.04 with latest updates without success. Anyone tried this on an updated 16.04/18.04? The package was successfully installed and i can launch the clickshare app but nothing happens when i plug the usb dongle. It just blinks. Any suggestions?

@Peter-Nijenhuis
Copy link

installation worked fine.
But now I get another error.
Once I open the clickshare app I get the message "waiting for clickshare button. When I plug the clickshare button into my usb port and press the button on the clickshare device, I get the message: "all buttons are in use by another application"

I've got no other application open.

Any suggestions?

Having the same symptoms as described by foot3print and Peter-Nijenhuis (deb and dependencies installed and dongle just blinking and on first launch of app msg "Waiting for button..."). Someone managed to get this working ?

@gnodnooh

Same issue too. On the app window, Clickshare Client is the only one the version number is checked. The rest keeps syncing. Any solutions?

I tried it on Ubuntu 16.04 - installs and runs but doesn't appear to recognise the USB dongle.
Dongle flashes white, on and off - but no amount of pressing the button seems to do anthing

I have the same Problem as njohnsto58, the only difference is I tried it on ubuntu 18.04.

Same problem here as aseru65: the dongle keeps on blinking, the client keeps on checking for updates. I am on Xubuntu 18.04. Also, when I connect the dongle, Xubuntu mounts it as a drive. Doesn't that conflict with using the device as something else than a drive? When I unmount the drive, the dongle keeps on blinking.

Do I even need the clickshare button when using this method? Can't I just connect directly to the projector's Wifi and project without the USB dongle?

Got it running on Ubuntu 18.04.

Install
libavutil52_9.20
libswscale2_9.20

sudo apt install gdebi
sudo gdebi clickshare_01.07.01-79_amd64.deb

On running Clickshare I saw
Gtk-Message: 08:48:02.071: Failed to load module "overlay-scrollbar"
Gtk-Message: 08:48:02.086: Failed to load module "canberra-gtk-module"

So install
sudo apt install libcanberra-gtk-module libcanberra-gtk3-module

After that i could share my screen with clickshare
