I'm hoping someone can help me. I'm trying out elementary os as a desktop os and have so far been impressed by how much of my home computing use is covered straightaway. installing a few extra apps from the store was nice and easy, also for an app not in store (spotify).

One thing I am missing from mac/pc though is adobe lightroom. I understand I can run LR6 in wine, but I would prefer a native app over an emulator.

I have found Lightzone (https://lightzoneproject.org) which seems great, but I don't know how to install it.

I've used terminal to do

sudo apt install software-properties-common

and then

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:lightzone-team/lightzone

sudo apt-get update

But I seem to be missing a last instruction to actually install - can someone fill in the blank?

cheers, John

  • Try sudo apt install lightzone

ppa:lightzone-team/lightzone only appears to contain the package lightzone, and AFAIK the new add-apt-repository command updates source automatically, so these are the full commands:

sudo apt install software-properties-common
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:lightzone-team/lightzone
sudo apt install lightzone
  • thank you Lewis, perfect.
