I recently started using enfuse to do focus stacking. Not particularly interested in development or new features, I just installed the Ubuntu package and went on my merry way.
Recently have been getting pop-up dialogs about upgrading to “Jammy Jellyfish” (I think they’re running out of African animals at Canonical). I’d been clicking to upgrade and having it do nothing for about a month now, then yesterday it all of a sudden decided to work. Off it went, doing the usual upgrade things, one of which was to summarize the changes so I could consider them. One of the changes was that it was going to remove hugin, and so I thought that would be okay as it should be in the replacement distro. No, bad assumption, it’s not.
Okay, I can compile stuff, so I set off to do that. Well they don’t even have certain required packages in Jammy, particularly wxWidgets. That just irritated me to no end, since I use that toolkit quite heavily. So, I’ll have to see if hugin will link to my local builds of wxWidgets.
This all has me wanting to revert to a simpler time; most reading I’ve done to look for remedies talks about the eventual Ubuntu push to “everything’s a snap”. Geesh; Debian is sounding really good right now…
