So yeah, I’m a big fan of Newshosting. The best thing about them is probably that they have their own (very capable) desktop-client and that aforementioned client is available for your major operating-system of choice (namely Windows, Linux and OSX).
A problem I ran into while trying out the program: As long as I am in a GNOME session, the client would crash on startup with a message like “(<unknown>:10800): GdkPixbuf-WARNING **: Bug! loader ‘png’ didn’t set an error on failure”.
After throwing my problem at Google I came across this nifty post that presented me with a straight-forward solution:
Just run as root:
Logout/Login and it will be all right now 🙂
And all right it was, indeed. Thank you, internet!
