    Cool! Did you manually code your interface or used JQueryUI? It looks like soon we could have a super avatar factory!

    The only problem is that I can only add a fixed set of movies: I have a random selection of 10, from Dear John to Sherlock Holmes. Maybe it’s not implemented yet. Will check back for new releases!

      Hi Nonno!
      It is manually coded, no JQueryUI, just JQuery.
      You can add any movie you want, there should be a search box, below the main search box, type a title and hit enter.
      You can also add movies from the command line, open a terminal and type:
      figuritas –help

    I see a big problem with your package. I installed, it asked for the permission to install thttpd and I agreed, thinking that it would not interfere with my existent Apache install.

    Instead I now have a broken Apache, even after removing (purging) thttpd.

    Basically I can use Apache if I go to localhost. If I go to, I get the listing of /var/www, but with the httpd css theme. Going to usually works as expected, but sometimes I get the php file contents or the directory listings instead of the expected site.

    Ok, reinstalling everything related to Apache saved my day. 🙂 But you should really distribute this as a webapp, allowing anyone to run it on top of their preferred server, and only leave a package with thttpd for those who are not currently running any webserver, stating it very clearly to avoid this problem.

      I think I know what the problem was: There was no need to reinstall apache or to remove thttpd.
      You removed thttpd but it was still running in the background.
      You should have tried: ‘sudo killall thttpd’ without removing it.
      Then you will be able to run figuritas and your /var/www folder should not list anything.

      The problem is that thttpd runs an instance of itself in /var/www after it gets installed and it will be automatically started every time you restart you pc.
      I have to find out how to solve that.

      Thanks for reporting and testing 🙂

      I did some research.
      This is the file that starts thttpd with every boot:
      And the next one is the config on port 80 and folder /var/www :

      With this commands you should be fine:
      sudo killall thttpd
      sudo update-rc.d -f thttpd remove

      I will fix the installer for the next version.

        Sadly this is not the case. After removing thttpd I restarted the computer to be absolutely sure that it was not running anymore, still I had the problem. Indeed stopping Apache I was not able to get the pages anymore.

        I think that the install of thttpd actually modifies some configuration file it shouldn’t touch.

        My advice is that if Figuritas is a web app, the best way to distribute it for those already running a web server would be a compressed folder to be exctracted inside /var/www. If Figuritas involves some more traditional parts (I think it has some parts written in bash) then I don’t know.

      You can try the new version:

      Figuritas is a cgi app so you will have to configure apache to run cgi scripts:
