HDR software for Linux

I’m currently trying to put a set of HDR (High Dynamic Range) images together, but I can’t do so because:

a) Photoshop doesn’t like me anymore.

b) The Gimp doesn’t have HDR capabilities :frowning:

So I resolved to finding some software native to Linux. I’ve found a program called “Luminance”, but the .deb is only i386 and the USC doesn’t want to install it. It says for a 64-bit version I’d have to compile it, which apparent “can be done easily”.

The source code is available here : Download luminance-hdr-2.1.0.tar.gz (Luminance HDR)

Website here: http://qtpfsgui.sourceforge.net/

Could someone help me compile it?

From what I can remember, I need to:

cd ~/Downloads

and then I don’t know XD

You do have a habit of making things hard for yourself … and me :wink: … I figured “he must have looked for a PPA first”, so I spent ages trying (and failing) to get it to compile … bloody thing has some depreciated code.

So I thought, I’d have a look around … Erm, there IS a PPA ::slight_smile:

First make sure you have ppa-purge installed

sudo apt-get install ppa-purge

Then add the PPA and install luminance -

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:philip5/extra


sudo apt-get update


sudo apt-get install luminance

Now, considering there is a LOT of stuff in that PPA … I’d disable the PPA in Synaptic>Repositories>Other Software (tab) … ie. untick the 2 philip5/extra entries … then run:

sudo apt-get update

before accepting any updates.
