Ufraw Install on Mac?

rich2005
Dear GIMP-ers—

I am running GIMP 2.8.20 on a Mac with Mavericks (Mac OS 10.9.5).

The previous version, 2.4, automatically included Ufraw and would open the .RW2
files from my Panasonic Lumix camera. (I was really impressed that it did.)

I now must install Ufraw for the newest GIMP, but for my life I cannot discover
how to do it. I have downloaded Ufraw .22, unzipped it, and there it sits in its
folder. It seems that all of the components are present, but when I put it in
either plug-in's or modules folders, at the root level of GIMP or in the 2.8
folder, the program does not open .RW2 files.

Is there a set of instructions for installing Ufraw? I see several references to
MacPorts and the command line, but have to say they don't give me the info
needed to make Ufraw work.

Any help is appreciated.

Sincerely,

Glen

It may be easier (or make more sense) to use one of the newer raw
processing softwares available?  They are a little more actively developed
and will likely support newer cameras better.  There's:

darktable: https://www.darktable.org
RawTherapee: http://www.rawtherapee.com

Each of these will let you develop your raw files, and then export them for
further modification in GIMP if desired!

Ufraw Install on Mac?

rich2005
Pat—

thanks for the suggestion. It makes me think that, indeed, Ufraw is a hard nut
to crack. It's kind of too bad, because the bundled and installed Ufraw in the
previous version of GIMP was very seamless and convenient to  use.

I will look at the alternatives you suggested.

Regards,

Glen

Hello -
I am a satisfied Mac user and an avid photographer; I use for the post-production of my pictures GIMP, namely the distribution (released by Simone Karin Lehmann) "GIMP on OS X", available under the URL http://sourceforge.net/projects/gimponosx .  This distribution comes with a pre-compiled gimp-ufraw plugin; loading a RAW picture in GIMP is handled in this way.  However "GIMP on OS X" lacks a standalone ufraw and ufraw-batch.  Needing for my RAW pictures ufraw-batch, I compiled ufraw and ufraw-batch from the source code; however this is not completely described in the ufraw documentation.  Here is what I did.

For the compiler, you need to install Xcode (from the Apple Store, free) and the Xcode command line tools; how to do that is described in a lot of places, Google will help.

For the libraries, I have installed the ones supplied by the Macports projects:

          +--------------+--------------+---------+
          |              | Package      | Version |
          +--------------+--------------+---------+
          | LCMS         | lcms2        | 2.8     |
          | EXIV2        | exiv2        | 0.25    |
          | JPEG         | jpeg         | 9b      |
          | JPEG2000     | openjpeg     | 2.1.2   |
          | TIFF         | tiff         | 4.0.7   |
          | PNG          | libpng       | 1.6.28  |
          | ZIP          | zip          | 3.00    |
          | BZIP2        | bzip2        | 1.0.6   |
          | LENSFUN      | lensfun      | 0.3.2   |
          | CFITSIO      | cfitsio      | 3.390   |
          | GTKIMAGEVIEW | gtkimageview | 1.6.4   |
          +--------------+--------------+---------+

How to install them is described in the Macports home page, http://www.macports.org .

The Macports libraries are compiled with clang and clang++ as C and C++ compilers; while clang and gcc are fully compatible, and their object files linkable together, clang++ and g++ use different name mangling schemes; so, if you want e.g. exiv2 support (exiv2 is a C++ package) you need to change the default compilers.  So, finally, I unpacked, configured, compiled and installed ufraw/ufraw-batch with the following commands:

tar xzf ufraw-0.22.tar.gz
cd ufraw-0.22/
CC=clang CXX=clang++ CPPFLAGS=-I/opt/local/include \
    LDFLAGS=-L/opt/local/lib \
    ./configure --prefix=/opt/local/share/ufraw-0.22
make
sudo make install
sudo ln -s /opt/local/share/ufraw-0.22 /opt/local/share/ufraw
ln -s /opt/local/share/ufraw/bin/ufraw ~/Applications/ufraw
ln -s /opt/local/share/ufraw/bin/ufraw-batch ~/Applications/ufraw-batch
ln -s /opt/local/share/ufraw/share/man/man1/ufraw.1 ~/man/man1/ufraw.1

Notes:
- Macports include files are in /opt/local/include .
- Macports libraries are in /opt/local/lib .
- I installed ufraw in /opt/local/share/ufraw-0.22 , a directory soft-linked to /opt/local/share/ufraw ; when a new release will
  come, say 0.xy, it will be enough to install it in /opt/local/share/ufraw-0.xy and, then, change the soft link.
- The executables ufraw and ufraw-batch are soft-linked to ~/Applications, where OS X expects to find user executables.
- I have created ~/man/... for personal man files, and linked there ufraw.1, in order to have the output of "man ufraw".

HTH

which is the continuation of the UFRaw development. My build also comes
with G'MIC.

I don't think UFRaw is being maintained now. NUFRaw is currently at version
0.38.

I'd also recommend preprocessing with RawTherapee which I am also providing
either from my website or RT discussion site hosted by Pat.
