Need a working copy of QPhotoRec

#1 Post by pooky2483 » 14 Apr 2018, 21:42

I've just downloaded QPhotoRec (v1.0) from SOURCEFORGE and after I installed it and ran it, I got a message informing me that it was a beta version and after clicking on 'OK', nothing happened, it just closed.
Where can I download a working non-beta version of QPhotoRec as I prefer GUI over command line.

I've already downloaded testdisk-7.0.linux26.tar.bz2 yesterday but have no idea what to do with it, how do I install it? and does it have the GUI version QPhotoRec in it as I could not see anywhere to download the GUI version!
Thanks

Oh, BTW, sorry I didn't mention this earlier, I'm running Linux. Kubuntu 16.04.

As you are using Linux but not Fedora, to get QPhotoRec, you need to compile it as explained in https://www.cgsecurity.org/testdisk.pdf

Kunbutu is not derivated from Fedora, you need to compile QPhotoRec as written previously.
Note that you can also use PhotoRec...
