Photography - raw images - hot pixels


I have a Panasonic Fz28 camera, and I really like shooting raw images with it.

However, the manufacturer supports only windows,
and provides a software called Silkypix Studio for developing raw images.

Silkypix works fine and does auto detection/correction of "hot pixel" artifacts, but I'd rather stay logged on my all-wonder new slackware64-13 than on that crappy win....

Under linux, I've tried Rawtherapee and Ufraw,
but it seens that there is no "hot pixel" artifacts correction for both.

Silkypix is crappy on wine.

I really loved Rawtherapee and all it's features, but camon: pictures with hot pixels artifacts included are useless!

So, here we are: what program do you use to develop raw images under linux? please remember that it needs to auto detect/correct random "hot pixel" artifacts.

Looks like digiKam has a "hot pixel" plugin. I'm not a photographer and haven't tried using this though.

Sorry for not posting back sooner,
but what I need is something between rawtherapee (does a good job on batch process) and Sylkpix Studio (automatic hotpix correction + batch).

Gimp and others aren't really a good option because they kill productivity.

So, for now, I'll stick wick Sylkpix.
Thanks anyway.
