You may also want to copy the ffmpeg program to the same place. This program can be used to generate thumbnails from mpeg movies.
In addition, there is much more at http://marginalhacks.com/Hacks/album/ that you may want to use. In particular, you may be interested in themes that change the appearance of the photo albums.
If you cannot find a pre-built binary, download jhead-xxx.tgz from http://www.sentex.net/~mwandel/jhead/, extract the jhead-xxx directory and cd into it. Type ``make'' and copy the resulting executable file jhead to a place where one can easily execute it, e.g., /usr/local/bin or ~/bin. Try it out by applying jhead to some JPEG file that has been produced by a digicam.
Before you can do anything useful, you have to setup a root album using the File > Set root album command. I recommend to read the README file to get an idea what you can do with TKAlbum. I also recommend to read the Documentation.html file in the album directory to get an idea what you can do with the album script.
