Problems with darktable installation
« on: May 21, 2019, 10:49:59 am »
My first attempt was with apt-get install which worked but no icon in the menu meaning I could only launch it from either the command line or the software manager so I tried to reinstall with both software manager and synaptic same result, I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling with synaptic (software manager seems a tad clunky) but with the same result. Any ideas? thanks in advance :)

Can you post the output from:
Code: [Select]
dpkg -l | grep table
and
Code: [Select]
snap list
and
Code: [Select]
flatpak list

So darktable isn't installed at the moment ?

Run:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install darktable
now let me know if it's in the menu at

Menu > Graphics > Darktable

Yes Darktable is installed if I type darktable in a terminal it appears but no it's not in the graphics menu sudo apt-get install darktable was the first thing I tried :)

Did you just run that command I gave you to install it ? .. because according to your earlier output it was NOT installed ?

What is the output from:
Code: [Select]
dpkg -l | grep darktable
now ?

ii  darktable                                     2.4.2-1                                         amd64        virtual lighttable and darkroom for photographers

But I think I may have found the problem after installing peppermint I used an old backup to repopulate the hard drive and
there were some old darktable config file on that, I think that could be causing the problem so I intend to uninstall darktable delete that folder and try again

An old darktable config directory may stop it from launching, but it's unlikely to stop it displaying in the menu (unless you've broken the menu configs themselves by copying older versions of those too ?) .. the only thing (besides a broken menu)  likely to stop it showing in the menu is if you have a broken launcher for it.

What's the output from:
Code: [Select]
ls ~/.local/share/applications
and
Code: [Select]
ls /usr/share/applications | grep dark
