Cool Image Management Application


I have been wondering if there is an app like this available for Linux. I have seen some like LPhoto which cost money but are there any free ones available. An example is like Picasa for Windows.

Thanks!

ok you're right that is a good app, but not exactly what I am looking for.

For example, I have Thousands of home digital photos. I would like an easier way to sort and manage those somehow. Look at the link I posted above for lphoto or picasa, is there anything like that for linux that is free?

I have a hard time believing that I am the first person to want something like this.

Thanks for all your help.

Lphoto is GPL. Download the source from here: http://software.lindows.com/emptypoo...dows0.1.tar.gz

Frustration Installing Lphoto

I'm having a lot of difficulty installing lphoto.

I am running Fedora Core 1, using Synaptic to keep up to date.
I have attempted several times to get lphoto to install and continue getting this output:


python2.3 install.py
Sorry, please install PyQt.
make: *** [install] Error 1

I HAVE PyQt installed and have downloaded and installed python2.3.

Has anyone else run into this problem?

Thanks.

I have not used Synaptic since I am happy with apt-get from the command line. So, I am wondering if there is more to the above error message.

Does Synaptic have a more explicit error log somewhere that you can post? I know apt-get from the command line would privide a bit more information about package and version dependencies if it cannot find something needed.

The command, "python2.3 install.py" is the install command for Lphoto. It has to have PyQy installed correctly, ie. the way it wants. I'll try to remember what I did to make it get past this. I'll have to look around and research a bit.

I think I have found the answer, or at least I remember doing this step to get it all going.

Lphoto requires newer versions of the Qt and KDE libraries to run. If it doesn't find the correct version installed or configured as expected, it stops with the [sarcasm]very helpful[/sarcasm] message you encountered.

The way I got the right version was to configure my apt-get to point at the "KDE RPMS for RedHat Linux" project repository. This is a project that works to make RPMs of the latest "pure" KDE stuff tailored to install on Red Hat Linux distributions. Their main page at http://kde-redhat.sourceforge.net is not responding right now for some reason but you can still get to their project page at http://sourceforge.net/projects/kde-redhat/.

The following is the appropriate section from my /etc/apt/sources.list file, modified to point at Fedora Core 1 instead of FC2 that I use.

Code:
## kde-redhat repository(s) for Red Hat RHREL (yes, *4* lines)
rpm ftp://apt.kde-redhat.org/apt/ fedora/2  stable
rpm ftp://apt.kde-redhat.org/apt/ fedora/all    stable
rpm ftp://apt.kde-redhat.org/apt/ kde-redhat/2  stable
rpm ftp://apt.kde-redhat.org/apt/ kde-redhat/all    stable
Then I threw caution to the wind (really, this is sometimes dangerous) and did:
apt-get update
apt-get upgrade

This installed the latest Qt and KDE stuff on my box. I think I may have done a manual "apt-get install PyQt" too. (I should have documented what I did!)

Anyway, that is what I remember sitting here, late on a Wednesday night. I wish you luck.

PS The Lphoto that you download at the link I posted above it broken. The rotates and crop operations will not work and APPEAR to delete your picture. Linspire claimed that I had the latest shipping version when I asked about it. So, not having purchased the program, I hacked the code to "mostly" fix the broken functions. If you get the program installed and working but these functions are broken, I'll see about documenting the changes so you can make them yourself!

Thanks for the response.

Unfortunately after running all updates on my system, I am still not able to run the install.

I still get this error:

python2.3 install.py
Sorry, please install PyQt.
make: *** [install] Error 1


I have latest version of qt and python2.3 is installed.

Perplexed about what to do now.

I noticed you made reference to KDE. I am running gnome. Is there a chance that this would have something to do with my install failing.

BTW, I am pretty much a newbie to linux, so forgive me if my post isn't completely clear.

OK, I am a new to Python so we are kind of walking new ground together here. In the install.py code, the command that triggers this "Sorry, please install PyQt" error can be run in the Python shell. Perhaps further help can be provided if you attempt the following:

1. At a terminal type the command "python" and hit enter. You should see a display like this:
Code:
[alandd@dumbledore alandd]$ python
Python 2.3.3 (#1, May  7 2004, 10:31:40)
[GCC 3.3.3 20040412 (Red Hat Linux 3.3.3-7)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>>
You are now in the python shell.

2. Now we will try the command that triggers the error. Type the following "from qt import qVersion, PYQT_VERSION" and hit enter. If Python can find your PyQt install, it will simply pause briefly and then return with the ">>>" prompt. If it cannot, it will post some error message. Reply with that error message.

3. To exit the Python shell, press Control-D (that means end of file) and you will be back out to the terminal prompt.

I am guessing and hoping that the error code you get will help figure out what to do. Try that and we can go from there.

Linux can be confusing sometimes because of all the choice you have. This is a good thing! I'll try to briefly explain.

KDE and GNOME are two different desktop environments. You know that. Each desktop environment is built on code libraries that provide the desktop "widgets" like window control, buttons, edit boxes and so on. KDE is built on a widget library known as Qt. GNOME is built on GTK. In order for a KDE or GNOME application to run, it must load the appropriate widget libraries to get the widgets it needs. Therefore, you can run a KDE application on GNOME as long as the Qt widget libraries are available for the program in question. And, I run a few GNOME programs on my KDE desktop because I have the GTK libraries available to be loaded when the GNOME application runs.

Now, for a bit more possible confusion. Lphoto is not really a KDE application. It is an application written in Python that gets it's widgets from Qt. It is not "locked" to KDE but is dependent on Qt, which KDE happens to also depend on.

I hope that is at least clearer than mud! The bottom line in this case is that you don't have to run KDE to run Lphoto. You just have to have the Qt widget libraries installed.
