So far, I’ve been using RawTherapee only on Windows. But I’m doing more and more on Linux, so I’d like to use RT there, too.
Problem: Whenever my existing .pp3 files contain a reference to an external file, e.g. a camera profile or a lens profile, these references, and, consequently, the .pp3 profiles, don’t work under Linux – for syntactic reasons, but also because the file structure is different.
I could probably come up with some script that traverses my Photo tree and re-writes all these references, but then I couldn’t use RT under Windows anymore.
Am I right in assuming that there is no current solution?
A possible solution – not for my immediate problem, but for the future – could be to define a base path for camera profiles and lens profiles in Preferences, and store relative paths in the .pp3s, just as it is done today for HaldCLUT.
A different approach could be to provide a kind of “path translation mechanism” that leaves absolute paths as they are but, e.g., would allow you to define a replacement of some path prefix with a different one.
What do you think? Any other ideas?
