    Default Linux equivalent of Lightroom

    Hi all,

    I'm a linux user and I'm looking for a software that can replace Lightroom in Windows. I've read previous posts on Photoshop and GIMP, but I want a software that can manage my photos as well as do some intermediate editing options. The F-spot that came with Ubuntu only allows me to sharpen. I found Lightzone, but it's not free... I'm downloading the Ubuntu Studio now, has anyone tried it before?

    Pls tell me if it's good or not, or if there're other options.

    KM

    Lightroom isn't free either.
    Alternatively you could try running LR in a virtual machine or emulation. Needs a bit more technical knowhow and preparation but retains the good of both worlds then.

    Hmm... yeah but I'm a bit reluctant to go back to Windows after Linux works so quickly for me... but thanks anyway.

    Maybe this will help... I have not tried it out myself though... Do let me know if it works if you decide to try it
