Works OK--but I don't have any RAW images to see test if it's using libraw10 successfully. Added the fotoxx-maps package now in the test repo, and that seems to be working well.

fotoxx-17.04 is available for download from the test repo. Lot's of work done for this one.
* New upstream version
Technical:
+ Source code revisions for GTK API changes (Ubuntu 17.04, Fedora 25).
+ Implementation of AppImage, a distro-agnostic packaging format.
+ Smoother gallery scrolling via thread to pre-fetch thumbnail images.
Functionality:
+ Image Montage: join selected images together into a compact table format.
Images included in the table can be clicked to show a full-size image.
+ Paint Image: modified to make it easier to use with a Wacom tablet.
+ Paint Image: use any image as a custom color palette - click to select color.
+ Edited images get an automatic tag, allowing "edited" as a search criteria.
+ Alien Colors effect: repaint an image or area with random strange colors.
+ Stack/Paint: Transient forground objects can be removed automatically, and a
moving subject can be shown in multiple positions against the background.
+ Twist effect: twist or swirl an image around a mouse-selected central point.
+ Script Files: most of the special effects functions are now scriptable.
+ Denoise - measure noise: the noise is more completely characterized.
+ The desktop wallpaper functions were removed because they stopped working.
User Interface:
+ Paint Image and Clone Image were split into separate functions.
+ Trim/Rotate: margin sides can be dragged in addition to the corners.
+ Rename, Copy/Move, Delete/Trash: options were added to keep these dialogs
open or not (keep open is easier/faster if processing multiple files).
+ Albums can now be sorted like any other gallery, but cannot be edited when
in an out-of-sequence condition. To edit, re-open the album.
+ User Settings: an album name can be specified as the startup gallery.

Bug Fixes:
+ Startup with file parameter: now works for absolute or relative file name.
+ Correctly handle file and directory names containing '$' characters.
+ Voodoo functions can now be assigned to shortcut keys like any other.
+ Disallow re-sorting of a metadata report, which loses the link between
images and their metadata. Sort the gallery before generating the report.
+ Copy to Desktop or Clipboard: an edited but unsaved file copies correctly.
+ Trim/Rotate: stop sporadic motion of zoomed image when margins are dragged.

The developer must have changed the code that required a newer GTK 3. It's working fine for me so far--we don't need a new version of fotoxx-maps, from what I can see. This is worth tweeting about--or I saw there's an open-source competitor to Twitter called Mastadon, where the messages are called "toots".

The new version also pulls in dcraw again, which Fotoxx no longer uses (see earlier in this thread). The website now recommends users install Rawtherapee, which the program will use to open RAW images in a GUI.

Code: Select all

Additional programs required or optional for Fotoxx
Fotoxx uses the following programs which are installed separately:
 xdg-utils 	 req.
	open text or html files with user's preferred application
 exiftool 	 req.
	(v. 8.60 or later) read and write image metadata (tags, comments, etc.) 
 leafpad
	 req.
	used for display of backtrace dump after a fatal error (see zappcrash below)
 Raw Therapee
	 opt.
	open a RAW file for editing using its native GUI
 growisofs 	 opt. 	burn a CD or DVD with selected images
 xgamma 	 opt.
	used for the Monitor Gamma function (adjust monitor gamma)
 fotoxx-maps
	 opt.
	set of geographic maps to show image locations and report images by mouse click
 hugin
	 opt. 	PT Panorama function uses Panorama Tools (normally packaged with Hugin)

I sent a new set up. I'll send a note to the getdeb maintainer as well (which is where I've been getting it).
