Raw conversion on 2.10.8
#1
I recently moved up to the AppImage of 2.10.8. Clicking on an ARW (Sony raw) file no longer brings up Nufraw as it did in earlier releases of 2.10.

Is this the appimage from aferrero2707 GIMP_AppImage-release-2.10.8-withplugins-x86_64.AppImage ?

Just been checking it out and I do not think you will get nufaw working in that. Tried it and no-show. The Gimp developers cannot see much past Rawtherapee and Darktable.

The appimage will support  Carmelo's own application Photoflow (I dislike that as much as Darktable) You could try that or one of the other two.

I keep my old homemade appimage around for nufraw and gutenprint because it works. Do not need cutting edge for that.

So that is one solution, keep your old appimage for when needed. I have lots of appimages for all sorts of things. I store them no where near the system files or my home partition. Run them when required.

edit:

Photoflow is probably the closest to nufraw, if you can find a package for your version of linux.
I think you are using Mint so there is a version here: https://launchpad.net/~dhor/+archive/ubuntu/myway

Tried in a 'buntu VM and the installation is quite sizable, pulls in 17 dependencies so more than a few MB's

Using the 2.10.8 appimage

File -> Open a raw in Gimp and it finds Photoflow which opens. YAOBT (yet another obnoxious black theme)

looks like this https://i.imgur.com/B5mDL4P.jpg

..then close Photoflow , a bit of a delay while it thinks, and the image opens in Gimp, as 32 bit fp. https://i.imgur.com/r7Li8fy.jpg

You guessed right about the AppImage I have. I am on Debian and shall see if the Photoflow you pointed to is any good for me. If it is not, I shall still have the option of using UFRaw (stand-alone).

[edit] Photoflow is described as "a fully non-destructive photo retouching program" with raw conversion tacked on. I think I shall skip it and go with what I already have.

Last night I pulled in the latest version of GIMP and it is now in
~/GIMP 2.10/GIMP_AppImage-git-2.10.9-withplugins-20181122-x86_64.AppImage

Seeing that GIMP accepts RawTherapee, I put it in another sub-directory,
~/therap/RawTherapee-releases-5.4.AppImage

Each of these runs, but I'd like RT to start when a raw file is opened by GIMP. Can this be achieved by doing something in ~/.config/GIMP-Appimage/2.10/plug-ins?

You are not going to get the Gimp appimage to call-up the RawTherapee appimage. Try installing the Rawtherapee debian package.

The best you will get is the same as UFraw/nufraw standalone and set the path to the Gimp appimage in the Rawtherapee preferences as 'path to external editor'. Even then a bit flakey, best have Gimp open, then open Rawtharapee, choose the image, then send to 'editor'.

Any advantage over UFraw? You will get the image into Gimp as 16 bit.

Might be described as that, but Rawtherapee is even more. There are users who do everything in Rawtherapee and never go near Gimp. For what you want using the appimage, you should try PhotoFlow.

Thank you. I shall try the options you suggest.

[edit] In the end I took the easy route and re-installed an earlier version which includes Nufraw. You had sent me the URL in May.

I've just seen this thread, sorry for joining a bit late...

I'm the GIMP appimage maintainer and PhotoFlow developer.

Regarding the quastions and issues raised here:
* NUfraw: I will try to include it again in the appimage
* Gutenprint: I am working on its integration in the AppImage, but getting a crash at the moment. Hopefully will be available soon
* running the RT AppImage from within the GIMP appimage: yes, it is possible, but the RT appimage should be renamed (or linked to) "rawtherapee" and this "fake" RT executable needs to be in a folder that is included in your PATH variable. Then it should work... or at least it did in my tests.

Hope this helps...
