BloGTK is simply a Linux Gnome based desktop client that allows users via a clean GUI to manage their blog posts, which will be very useful for users having many blogs. BloGTK supports many blog-publishing services like WordPress, Blogger (Blogspot), Movable Type, and any other weblog system supporting XML-RPC publishing.

With BloGTK, you can create, edit, and remove blog posts directly from your Ubuntu desktop, no need to sign in to your blog dashboard using your web browser. In this page we will see how to install this client under Ubuntu 11.10/11.04 and any older version of Ubuntu.
