In response to a query on one of my videos, here’s how to build the latest 1.6.x version of darktable on Ubuntu 12.04.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get build-dep darktable
sudo apt-get install git xsltproc
git clone https://github.com/darktable-org/darktable.git
cd darktable
git tag # find the latest 1.6 release tag
git checkout release-1.6.6 # at the time of writing 1.6.6 is the latest
./build.sh
cd "./build" ; sudo make install
/opt/darktable/bin/darktable

  1. Thanks Robert for the help. I was worried my new camera was not recognised by older version of darktable. You made my day. By the way nice youtube videos. Will be following them
