Hello and thanks in advance for the help.
Running Linux PoP OS (based on Ubuntu) on System 76
I have been using DT for a while, and recently updated to 4.2
Installed from the PoP OS repository, but also had an installation thru Synaptic Package Manager.
DT will open, with all the images from a previous session showing.
When I click IMPORT, the ADD TO LIBRARY menu will open, to the correct hard drive where my images are stored; but I cannot navigate to the Photos folder I have there. DT locks up with the ‘Darktable is not responding’ message and I have to force quit.
I reopened DT, had to delete database lock files, then reopen again. Still the same problem I cannot import images.
I deleted both DT installations, the one in Synaptic, and the one through PoP OS.
Reinstalled PoP OS only. Still the same problem. I’m thinking I need to delete all configuration files and do a clean install.
Opening Terminal, I navigated to /home/username/.config/darktable
and get the following output. Theres a lot of stuff in there from old installs it looks like, but no lock files at the time. I’m thinking uninstall DT, delete all these files and start over??
user@computer ~> cd /home/anyname/.config/darktable
user@computer ~/.c/darktable> ls
Any other suggestions?? and thanks!
