The recent release of Fotoxx 12.05, had me take a look at this for Linux only photo management suite. After having played with it for a number of days, I think you should take a look at it too. You should also have a look at the video's the author kornelix has put up on Youtube for this application as well. Some real highlights for me are the Panorama and HDR stuff.

QT giac (qtgiac) and new lib lq/mc2 v. 3.03
