This is probably going to sound a little stupid, and I know I should really know this by now, but… if I want to get somewhere like my downloads, documents, etc, what is the file path to get there?
Apparantly none of these places exist and I’m having trouble figuring out what I’m missing out. I usually put ‘nautilus’ before them but this is really all so I can install something…
You were there with /home/lucy/downloads … well nearly … Remember Linux commands/paths ARE case sensitive, so it should have been /home/lucy/Downloads
so /home/lucy/downloads, and /home/lucy/Downloads are 2 different places.
You can shorten this to ~/Downloads
As ~ means the current users home directory.
When I navigate to a folder in the Downloads it works, but not with ‘cd’ before it…
lucy@Lumae:~$ cd /home/lucy/Downlooads/rawstudio-1.1
bash: cd: /home/lucy/Downlooads/rawstudio-1.1: No such file or directory
lucy@Lumae:~$ nautilus /home/lucy/Downloads/rawstudio-1.1
Any idea what’s going on?
Yup … typo … you’ve got 2 oo’s in Downlooads
…oh dear. Well, that makes sense >.> Oops… thanks for spotting that, lol.
Edit - it still does the same thing with it spelled correctly
if the nautilus /home/lucy/Downloads/rawstudio-1.1 command worked and opened nautilus in the rawstudio-1.1 directory …
and you should end up at this prompt:
Try changing the current directory, one directory at a time…
at the very least you’ll see where it’s falling over.
It’s working now
It got some of the way through configuring… then came up with this:
configure: error: *** Rawstudio requires libjpeg.
I looked on the Synaptic Package Manager, and it says I do have ‘libjpeg62’ installed, which is the latest version. Do I need ‘libjpeg62-dev’ or ‘libjpeg-dbg’ as well? I don’t know if this is specific to the program though, so if you don’t know what I’m talking about don’t worry about it
You do realise rawstudio 1.2-5 is available in the repos don’t you?
Oh, I didn’t even consider it would be… that was easier… Thank you
gimp-dcraw and/or gimp-ufraw may be easier to use… they’ll import RAW images directly into the GIMP.
both in the repos.
Ok, I’ve installed gimp-dcraw (only lets me install one or the other) - I really like this program so I’ll be using it for most of the editing, but it’ll definitely help to be able to edit them more in Gimp afterwards.
