Hi,

where did you get your darktable from? Did you install it using our PPA?
If so try to re-install (remove with "sudo apt-get remove --purge darktable"
If not so please remove your installed version and install from the PPA.

Try to remove the ~/.config/darktable and ~/.cache/darktable folders completely and retry starting it.

Thanks, I think it works now. It was installed (and then re-installed) from
your PPA. I have noticed a couple of weird things (image in editor not as
big as used to, complains of lack of memory and asks to reduce export
threads) but at least it starts.

Okay,

great to hear it starts for you. The other things you mention are not really "bugs" but more artefacts from upgrading from old dt versions or just us detecting your system's abilities now. To "fix" these, try...

  • ...to set the "maximum width/height of image drawing area" in the gui options near your screen resolution for resizing the image size in darkroom mode
  • ...to really reduce export threads, maybe just use one. Since all our modules are OpenMP enabled they will always use all your available CPU cores anyway - so no point in starting multiple exports at the same time.
  • ...bye some more RAM :)

regards,
Simon
