DragonDisk - A Cyberduck alternative for Ubuntu to connect to Amazon s3!

When I was using Windows, I used Cyberduck to connect to the Amazon s3 to manage my buckets easily.  But now, I'm moved to Ubuntu, and I wanted to have a good s3 client similar to the CyberDuck. So while I was looking for the best alternative, I found DragonDisk which was a great tool  to manage the s3 buckets as in CyberDuck. It has a similar interface to the CyberDuck, so I think it will not be a problem for you to shift from CyberDuck to DragonDisk. So I thought I should write this in my blog so it would be useful for others as well.

Here I'm showing how to install it. If you want further assistance on the software like how to use, please visit the DragonDisk website :) But it's fairly easy to use. Install, add your S3 details, and connect!

Step 01: First Download the release that matches with your Ubuntu installation from this link.

Step 02: It will download a .deb package. Once the download is complete, double click on it to run the installer. (it will open your Ubuntu Software Center to complete the installation.)

Step 03: Click on the Install Button.

Step 04: Finish! Now you can launch the DragonDisk either by using the Unity Launcher or the Terminal.

Press the “Super Key” and type in “DragonDisk” to locate it from the launcher. If you want to start it using the terminal, Open the terminal and type “dragondisk” without quotes and press enter.



This is how the Software looks once you open it.
