Yes.Great, that should give you all the basic raw functionality and it never hurts to ask.

It would be great to have Darktable or Rawtherapee in a future release.  So many people shoot raw now, so I think it would be a good idea to include something like this in the Vector repositories.

Thanks overthere.  That is helpful.  I took your advice and installed Geeqie, and that will display my raw files.  I also managed to install the ufraw plugin for GIMP from the developer's website.  Ufraw allows some editing.  Maybe I'll ask the Vector team to look into the Darktable issue.

Hi mikey62
Have you used the included gthumb and gimp for viewing and editing? I like geeqie also as viewer, it is available in the repository.

 the guys are likely busy with the 7.2 beta2 or rc but you could make a build request for darktable in the new package request threads nearer the bottom of the forum.

 both therapee and darktable are gaining popularity as they improve, I think darktable has been in the repository in the past but is currently not available as the new release usually see refreshed repository and as such the request for favorite apps, at least that can be built if someone has time. you would likely be ask to test any builds and get it sorted.

 great crew here but one must appreciate its limited size. I note that libraw and libopenraw are also available in the repository if they are required for viewing raw images in gthumb or geeqie, or your installs. the gslapt package manager is on the system menu.  hope that helps

Does anyone know of a good raw image editing program which will run on Vector, and how to compile/install it?  I have tried to install Raw Therapee and Darktable, but they wouldn't launch.  I have tried the SlackBuild packages and also the Alien ones.  Incidentally, I am currently using the VLocity 7.2 beta version.

Hello nightflier,

Thank you very much for the tip. That worked like a charm.

Now, for those who may not be familiar with the dialog that "gdmsetup" will open, here's a short How To on what to do:


To set auto login with Vector Linux 7.0 Light, in a root terminal session, enter "gdmsetup".

This will open the "Login Window Preferences" dialog.

In the "Login Window Preferences" dialog, click on the "Security" tab.

Under the "Security" tab, check the "Enable Automatic Login" checkbox. This will enable the "User:" pulldown listbox.

Click on the pulldown listbox button to open the list of users.

Select the user whose session will be auto logged into.

Click on the "Close" button to close the "Login Window Preferences" dialog.

That will do it.


Note - As gdmsetup was opening the dialog, I got the following warning message 7 times in the terminal session:

gdmsetup[2267]: Gtk-WARNING: GtkSpinButton: setting an adjustment with non-zero page size is deprecated

The dialog opened OK, and there was no problem using it.

Thanks again.  vlinco..

Hi vlinco, glad to see you still keep those good old machines running.  :)

For auto login: In a terminal, as root, run command "gdmsetup".

I just installed VL 7.0 Light on an ancient desktop. I seem to have just about everything working except for auto login. I've Googled, searched the forum, looked all over and can't seem to find out how it's done with VL 7.0 Light. The window manager and display manager are what was installed from the CD. I selected Icewm as the window manager, and I have no idea how to figure out what the display manager is.

The question is: How do I implement auto login in VL 7.0 Light w/Icewm?

It worked, thanks. I noticed if you don't su before using installpkg you get a 'package not found' .It would be better if it said you need to be root to use it as i tried it without su (not reading your directions correctly) and was about to ask you how to install it. However, all ok now so thank you again, Brian.
