Yeah, I see the near hostility regarding file management. But I just want to FIND the folder where my images (raw, sidecar, and exported) are stored. A simple “Open in Terminal” or “Open File Manager”.
My process now: Open the “Image Information” block. Triple click on the “full path” contents. Open a terminal. Do ls , delete the dot extension replace with *. Now I have the file and the sidecars. But I need to go to the specific sidecar I was working on. So go back to dt, open the duplicate manager and find the number, say “2”. Go back to the terminal and add _02..xmp, I have the sidecar.
I can open the file now with xdg-open, and drag it to my application (A “Edit My Raw”/“play_raw” style website).
But I also want the jpeg for this file. So I select the sidecar in lighttable, and click on “Export”. I get a 2-second flash of the filename that was written. Now I want to find that file, so I can upload the jpeg associated with that sidecar. Where is that file? So I triple-click on target storage and see that it’s in (FILE_FOLDER)/darktable_exported/(FILE_NAME), and on_conflict is set to create a unique name. If I click on the icon next to that, I open the file manager at my home directory, so that doesn’t help.
At this point, I’m thinking “I must be missing something!”, a simple task like finding the sidecar and associated exported image takes many steps, and there appears to be no way to even know what the name of the image that was exported is to view in another application. Especially if the create unique is set.
Am I missing something?
