LZ 4.1.8

Received this new version for Ubuntu 16.04 this morning, but sadly it still will not open Fuji compressed raw files.  So I am wondering why, and also what new features are in the release.

Not Available for Ubuntu 16.04 Yet?

When I click on Linux and look for Ubuntu, I can't find it.  This may be because the subject heading mentions something about it being available on December 25th, which we haven't gotten to yet.  Also, the CHANGELOG doesn't mentioned anything about new Raw Tone Curves, so I assuming that those haven't been added yet.  Note: click on the word/link CHANGELOG above for more info.

 

Hopefully we'll know more tomorrow when the updates are available.

Availability

Updates and/or new versions come directly for me via the ppa, so that is why I already have 4.1.8.

What PPA

are you using?

LZ has completely crashed my

LZ has completely crashed my computer, twice.  I opened a jpeg, and could not click on any of the styles, tools, or menus.  Even using the System Monitor to kill the LZ processes did not work.  I had to do a shutdown both times.

Will try to reinstall 4.1.7, if possible.

Ubuntu 16.04 64-bit.  I have cleared the cache, but 4.1.8 still freezes when I try to edit an image.  I had no problems with 4.1.7.

LZ 4.1.8 will open thumbnails

LZ 4.1.8 will open thumbnails of all the images in a folder, and I can navigate through them by clicking.  I can also select ones to delete, and do so.

The freeze happens when I click Edit on an image.  It opens in the editing window, but then I cannot click on anything, not even the button to close the application.

I was able to remove both LZ 4.1.8 and the ppa via synaptic, and then reinstalled 4.7.1, which works as it should.  Whew!

I've added Ubuntu packages

I've added Ubuntu packages (16.04/17.04/17.10) to my repository PPA Highly Explosive:

Every Ubuntu user should be able to add this to the system (PPA) - instruction is under given link.

BTW, ktgw0316 (Masahiro) - you did it again. Kudos :)

The new version just uploaded still crashes my computer.  It opens the thumbnails located in a directory, but when I click on an image to edit it, nothing works, and I have to do a complete shutdown.

I am running Ubuntu 16.04 LTS 64-bit.

Is there any way to get another copy of 4.7.1, which except for inability to open fuji compressed raw files, worked perfectly?

My Upgrade Works Fine

on Ubuntu 16.04.  You could trying clearing the cache by clicking on Edit/Preferences/Clear where the options are listed.

 

Other that you could find 4.1.7 HERE, and install and force version in Synaptic Manager.

Thanks for the info.  I

Thanks for the info.  I cleared the cache but it still does not work.

I have a few custom styles which worked perfectly with 4.1.7 but may be causing problems with the new version.  I have emailed the devs via launchpad and am awaiting a reply.

"Other that you could find 4.1.7 HERE, and install and force version in Synaptic Manager."

I have already looked for 4.1.7 for Ubuntu 16.04, but only the new version is available at that site.  I do not think the .7 for other versions of Ubuntu will work, as it seems to be version-specific.

Hi there!

Hi there!

In a clean installation (in a computer that never had lightzone installed before) with no custom styles, Mint 18.3... Lightzone 4.1.8 starts well & you can edit a pic... Things go wrong when you click in any of the predefined styles... The program freezes and you need to kill it to close...

So don't think the customs styles would be the problem neither the cache.

Currently downgraded my production computers to 4.1.7 as 4.1.8 doesn't work in any of them

Akira
Hi there!

Hi there!

 

I'm in the same case than merlinus... The same behaviour... If I install 4.7.1 from Feb package various dependencies are already broken and the program doesn't work at all... I can't edit pics right now oh my... :(

Akira
Installed 4.1.5 from sudo add

Installed 4.1.5 from sudo add-apt-repository ppa:otto-kesselgulasch/lightzone

 

Working fine again... With an old version thought

Akira
For anyone with the same

For anyone with the same problem... I instaled 4.1.7 from the PPA in this blog and working again just fine: https://404.g-net.pl/2016/10/lightzone-4-1-7-nareszcie-ppa/

 

edit- instaled trusty version .deb  from official PPA and works perfectly too...

 

I tried previously in a laptop that neved had lightzone instaled (Mint 18.2) and Lightzone 4.1.8 have the same behaviour... I doesn't work when you try to edit any pic.

Similar problem on windows 10 64bit using lz amd64 version

Hi 

I'am able to load pictures and editing it but than I tick ready or save or convert it opens the save or convert bar and freeze nothing work thereafter. I can only close by terminating task in windows task manager. In dedicated folder a .tmp  instate the lnz.jpg

Ps is there the 4.1.7 version for win 10 / 64bit anywhere available.

Hard to Say

I primarily run on my Linux Desktop (Ubuntu 16.04) but do have an older version of LZ on my my Win10 mini desktop.  My question is what is running prior to starting LZ?  What is the starting disk usage prior to starting LZ?  How big is the working folder you are editing in LZ?  What folder are the saved images saved to and how big is that folder?  You can find some of this information in the preferences.  You may be saving to an extremely large folder and/or editing to an extremely large folder.  I think LZ coughs at large folders , so you may want to break them down a bit.

Freezing LZ 4.1.8-20171226-amd64 under Windows 7

Everything seems to function until you cursor into the Styles column in edit mode.  Like others have reported everything freezes from that point forward.  Would like to revert to 4.1.7 but can't find any download links.  :(

Thanks... have the older 4.17 installed now and back in business.  Shouldn't someone update this website to prevent further grief from downloading the broken 4.18 version ?

Jacal
No, someone shouldn't

Version 4.1.8 is working on most sytems, so we should install it and try to find out, what is causing problems on some

Version 4.1.8 broken ?

Running Windows 7x64 (latest updates) here and both the x86 and amd64 versions do not work on my PC... update or clean install.  4.1.7 is back on and that works fine.  Majority of others running Windows 7x64 have no issues with 4.1.8 ?

New 4.1.8 update (2018/01/08) works fine now

Just tryed a new update via app updater in Mint 18.3 and the new version DOESN'T freeze when you click on "styles" .

It seems it works fine now... It was a clean installation on a Linux Mint 18.3 that never had installed Lightzone. The first released version freezed when clicked on styles, while editing images, but current one seems to work OK.

Thanks a lot!!

merlinus
Glad to hear that, but still

Glad to hear that, but still do not know if the new version will work on Ubuntu 16.04.  In any event, I will wait for the software updater to push it to me, and I have an installable copy of 4.1.7 in case it still freezes.

merlinus
Still broken!

The latest of 4.1.8 still completely freezes with Ubuntu 16.04.  Had to do a complete shutdown, uninstall, and then install 4.1.7.

Will now wait until Masahiro posts in the forum that the newest build of 4.1.8 will work with my OS.

@merlinus: I tested the latest 4.1.8-0ppa1xenial1 from the offiical PPA on a fresh Ubuntu 16.04 64bit virtualbox disk downloaded from osboxes.org, and the LZ works fine. I have no idea why LZ freezes on your machine.

Can you please give me the

Can you please give me the official ppa, so I can check it against the one I am using.  Then I will give 4.1.8 another try, and report back.

I will also test on another computer (laptop) running 16.04, and see if that works.

Thanks!

merlin

merlinus
Well, guess what?

Well, guess what?  The very latest version of 4.1.8 works perfectly, both on my desktop and laptop running Ubuntu 16.04.  I installed both from the official ppa only moments ago.  Wonder what changed???

There was a kernel update very recently, so that may have solved the issue.

Anyway, success!  And much thanks...

macOS problems

I'm on macOS HighSierra (10.13): me too, my LZ starts fine but when I try to open a file (raw or even jpg) it hangs forever !

I've found an update to 4.1.8 for windows. Any update for macOS?

I'm running the latest available version 4.1.8 just downloaded from web site.
