New interface in darktable 2.7 (dev)

(Martin Scharnke) #21

OK; I discovered, however, that the presets are still available, but that setting the sidebars to ridiculously wide obscures them.


@aurelienpierre Awesome. With a few more touches, it will be even better. Although I don’t use dt, it is great to see the surge of visible development and devs like you sharing what is going on for people to be excited about. :smile:

Standing ovation! Looking forward to being able to get my hands on this.



Can’t wait to see this in the official build so I can use it :smile:

Excellent :+1:

Many many thanks.

I like this but see no manner to “hide the outer arrows”. Is this possible yet?

GENERAL NOTICE : you need to install all the Roboto font packages available in your package manager to get the most of the new UI.

Roboto has improved over the years in response to criticism. It is okay now but still a little awkward. :face_with_monocle: Curious what it replaced in dt. If I had to choose a Roboto, I would go with Roboto Slab. :wink:

It’s gorgeous, please embed a music player and that’s all I need in this life, thank you :slight_smile:

@mosaster Where the UI bumps to the beats and changes colours to the tones. :joy: A nightmare for UX and colour management killjoys no doubt.

I did not order a surrealistic trip, sorry :crazy_face:, rather for a good time with tea, music and photo processing on a rainy day. :wink: Also, DT delivers visual satisfaction to its adepts, next thing it is missing - an element of audio, to become a pure creative art-gasm :grin:

darktable used whatever default GTK font, usually Cantarell. Another Opensource failure.

This should be in the release notes so packagers will learn about it.

I have google-roboto-fonts installed but see no way to “hide” the “outer arrows” in the four side “borders”


Sorry if this is a silly question as I even feel to remember, it was discussed somewhere…

The background color between image and sidepanels is too bright for my taste. Where and how can I adjust this? I would like it almost as dark as the rest of the GUI. Just a little bit lighter…

(darix) #36

There was a discussion a while ago that having this area being neutral grey is better for not making the image to dark/bright.


most of the cases, my pic anyway fill this area to almost 100%… While typing…that might be the reason for the offered border? I will reconsider…

Follow up question:

just google-roboto-fonts or also google-roboto-mono-fonts ?


It is on the way. The CSS is also adjustable.


installed roboto just now and it really looks cool.

Still need to fiddle around a bit. The headlines are too narrow for my taste… but besides really really cool.
