Hello,

On OSX im used to using adobe lightroom for all my photography needs. I use it as a photo manager and i like the addition of many editing options over smiler management software like iPhoto and picasa.

As adobe lightroom does not work on linux (ubuntu) im looking for equivalent software.

I know some of you use linux, I'm just wondering what software you use and how your workflow works with linux?

Thank you.

F-spot is pretty good, though basic. It may or may not fit your needs. It should be included by default, so check your menu :)

F-spot seems ok for management but the editing capabilities are very limited which is why I can't really compare it to lightroom/aperture

Don't go searching for a lightroom/aperture replacement. There sadly isn't one. Gimp approaches photoshop in some ways though.

RAWTherapee is what I use as a Lightroom-ish RAW converter and manager. I normally manage the ordering of my files myself since it's quicker and "logical" (to me that is).
