  1. As usual, always very thankful for you great hard work! Thanks to all the devs for such a wonderful program...
  2. Thanks for your great work
  3. Great update on DT. Nice program and really a proven one in photo editing.
    Started with testing the special Windows version from Partha. Works nicely so far but sometimes it crashes. Still very happy with it.

    Happy DT
  4. My only tool for my RAW photos under Linux ! Many thanks !!
  5. Bravo !
  6. Hi gentlemen, thank you all for excellent work. I upgraded from Fedora 21 to 23 only to be able to build DT 2.0.0 recently, and you gave us even newer version so quickly!

    I think that it would be very useful to have the newest darktable in official fedora update repository. For some strange (and unknown to me) reason they still stay on v1.6.9. Is there any way how to help to propagate the newer version into repos? Eg. post somewhere a user report with my system info, or something alike?
  7. errrmmm., has the line defining the UI languange in the /usr/share/darktable darktablerc file been removed? I always change the default german language to english. after this new installation i cant find the line in the rc file!!! HELP!!!
  8. Wonderful product! Great job guys!
  9. Merci pour cet outil fabuleux.
  10. It's still there, look for "ui_last/gui_language". However, I would suggest to set it in ~/.config/darktable/darktablerc. The file you mention is just used as the initial copy when no settings are found. And it gets overwritten when you update darktable.
  11. great, thanks a lot for all you work !
  12. An amateur photographer on Sun Feb 07 11:16:14 2016:
    Thanks guys for this fabulis job ! I love all your releases.
  13. Thank you so very much for finally adding white balance support for the Fujifilm X100T! Great work!

    Next question: when will Darktable support the Fujifilm X-Pro2? I have one on pre-order, and should receive it sometime in March :D

  15. Please create a ticket here: http://redmine.darktable.org/projects/darktable/issues/new
  16. Thank you guys for doing such a great job! It is highly appreciated. I look forward to each new release. I love using darktable; it is my prime photo development app (on Mac OS X & Ubuntu). I recommend it to anyone I now that is in photography. :-) Once again, great job!
  17. Thanks for your work ! Darktable becomes better and better.
    I would have a suggestion about gradient masks; is it possible to implement an improvement which allows us to choose between several shapes like conical or radial, etc.. (like Gimp)?
  18. Thanks to Partha build i can run it on Windows. What a great piece of software, thanks for all hard work! :)
  19. Discussing such ideas works probably best on the mailing lists or in the irc channel: http://www.darktable.org/contact/

  20. Hey great work I finally got it also running with opencl support
    (gtx 460 767MB ubuntu 15.10-64bit)

    just in case someone struggles

    I installed the latest nvidia driver via additional hardware drivers

    afterwards i installed the nvidia cuda toolkit
    via sudo apt-get install nvidia-cuda-dev nvidia-cuda-toolkit
    then i put the opncl.so, opencl.so.1 and the third opencl file that was required
    in the lib64 folder (they were easy to find via "locate opencl")

    and finally i ran nano .config/darktable/darktablerc
    to change the opencl_memory_requirement to 765

    and now everything is working fine and fast :)

    cheers Kai
  21. Great product. I love it. Thanks for your work. Have a nice day :-)
  22. Great work. Thanks. DT is now my favorite, taking the place of RT which I had used it for years. I was ready to download and compile it, but thought I better chech the debian packages, and there it is, no need for me to do any compiling work. I love it.
  23. Darktable - what else? Just popping in to say thanks for that great piece of FOSS. Keep it up!
  24. Hi, I've a 32 bits computer with 2Gb of RAM, yes that's old...

    Do I really need to stuck on 1.X version ?

    Meine Nummer 1 in der Bildbearbeitung, hat Lightroom abgelöst.
  26. I've been using this application from the beginning and I love it. I used it in my old linux laptop, and nowadays I'm using it in my macbook pro.

    When I use it in the auxiliary monitor, there is no problem an works like a charm :). Howeber, when I unplug the auxiliary monitor and try to use with the standard screen, I've seen that the application doesn't fit to the screen resolution.

    I tried almost all the solutions that I found on this web, unfortunately any has worked for my... Perhaps, the problem is the minimum screen size fixed in the application, I don't know.

    If any of you have a solution, I'll be happy to hear.

    Thanks in advance, and congratulation for this fantastic applications.
  27. For some strange (and unknown to me) reason they still stay on v1.6.9. Is there any way how to help to propagate the newer version into repos? Eg. Where is this information?
  28. Thank you guys for you amazing work ! I said good buy to Lightroom and Windows and now enjoying the free digital world and photography.
  29. The upgrade to v2.0 was awesome. The fact that you guys continue to fix all these bugs is phenomenal. Darktable is truly amazing! Thank you so much.
  30. Add this line:


    Hungarian translation is "funny" too... :/
  31. After a research, I've found a workaround here: http://redmine.darktable.org/issues/10902

    I changed DT's language (ui_last/gui_language=C). Then full screen, and then normal window.

    :S it's weird, but it works for me... I don't mind not to have the interface in my language :)
  32. After the last upgrade DT is no longer applying the default base curve when first opening a photo (with a Sony slt a58). Let me know what informations can I provide.
  33. * Is it a raw file?
    * Did you create some auto-apply preset in the basecurve module?
  34. I'm having a problem where darktable immediately closes upon opening. any advice?
  35. wow seems good
