Lightroom for Linux - is it possible? Most my friends and I need it, because of not using Windows and current Linux tools can't get so great instruments for raw preprocessing and organizing...

Any way we can kick Adobe in the right direction? The longer they postpone, the harder it gets for them.

Oh and please stop recommending Darktable. Maybe it works for some folks, but it only gives Adobe a weak excuse not to port Lightroom over to Linux.

Are you still expecting something from Adobe? Seriously? I have open this tread 2, 3 or more years ago!!!! I'm on a darktable forum and can tell you that many people are doing the transition now. Maybe it is time for you to do so? We are also starting to see some professional moving to darktable. In anycase, don't hold your breath on this.

Can Darktable transition all my edits without any loss or visual changes? I seriously doubt it.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Linux Support.

I would love to be able to edit on my Linux machine. Thanks for the web support, but there should be a real client app as well.

There are a lot of us who are forced to keep on using windows just for using Lightroom. I am a physicist who does computational physics. I have absolutely no need and no time for windows and their updates and all the rubbish that comes along with it. These days it is becoming increasingly difficult to dual boot windows and Linux and I need Linux for my work and basically everything that can be done on a computer runs on Linux other than Photoshop and Lightroom. I absolutely love photography and Lightroom is the most essential tool for me and a lot of others. It would be wonderful to have Lightroom for Linux!
