How To Install gTimelapse 0.1 on Ubuntu 15.10, Ubuntu 14.04 And Derivative Systems

As you may know, gTimelapse is a free and open-source software, based on gPhoto2 and wxWidgets, that helps the users create timelapse videos.

Time-lapse is that photographic technique used in cinematography to show different patterns of events that cannot be seen with the naked eye.

From Wikipedia:

Time-lapse photography is a technique whereby the frequency at which film frames are captured (the frame rate) is much lower than that used to view the sequence. When played at normal speed, time appears to be moving faster and thus lapsing. For example, an image of a scene may be captured once every second, then played back at 30 frames per second; the result is an apparent 30 times speed increase. Time-lapse photography can be considered the opposite of high speed photography or slow motion.

The latest version available is gTimelapse 0.1, which has been released a while ago.
