Interesting … I’ve tried to open darktable several times to see if I can replicate the probem. Ironically, each time DT has frozen and locked up my entire system, forcing me to reboot. Other apps seem to work just fine.
Am giving up trying to get DT to function for the foreseeable future (on this newly upgraded Mangaro/Linux platform).
EDIT: Having failed on my desktop, I did manage to run Darktable on my Linux latptop (converted from an old MacBook Pro) and successfully import @dqpcoxeas’s .xmp file. Followed along to see the steps taken to produce those results. No longer spend much time with DT but found it to be Interesting stuff.
I do not know what the problem might be…
To add some information.
I am using Linux Mint 20.3 as OS
And my Darktable version is: 4.1.0~git272.5a1a1845-1
I hope this information sheds some light, and if not, here I am for whatever it takes.
