First of all, this is my first post here so sorry if it's the wrong section. I work in IT security and programming, I use Prey for personal use but soon hoping to get the company I work with involved too.
Anyway, playing with Prey on most platforms I've made a few fixes for my own client. Recently however I wanted to put it on Mint and ran into a few issues with the Packages, on the software manager it's outdated, and the direct Ubuntu download link has dependency issues. So, after messing around I created a quick install script that works smoothly (will with with amd64 Mint, Ubuntu, other Debian distros) you can add others by just changing the URL, simply paste the below code in your terminal (as root) and sorted, thought I'd share, cheers:
echo "Install Prey Project on Mint/Ubuntu amd64 - Craig Fox"
cd; sudo apt install giblib1 libimlib2 mpg123 scrot streamer xawtv-plugins -y
apt --fix-broken install -y
dpkg -i prey_1.8.1_amd64.deb
echo "Launching setup control panel, link your account or create a new one, then you're done!"
/usr/lib/prey/current/bin/prey config gui -f
echo "alright, all done, now opening your online cpanel"
Any issues let me know
