Linux and Nikon RAW

I've been trying to switch to Linux for all my application for a very long time, and the last outstandig issue have been Nikon RAW files.

But now it seams that I successfully can fdisk my windows PC and install Linux on it. Today I found two websites which have the tools needed for me to use The GIMP for all my photo processing.

First get dcraw.c from http://www.cybercom.net/~dcoffin/dcraw/ and compile it with:
# gcc -o dcraw -O3 dcraw.c -lm -ljpeg
# su
# cp dcraw /usr/local/bin
# chown root.root /usr/local/bin/dcraw
# chmod 555 /usr/local/bin/dcraw

Then get RawPhoto GIMP-2.0 plug-in from http://ptj.rozeta.com.pl/Soft/RawPhoto and install it:
# tar zxfv rawphoto-20040527.tgz
# cd rawphoto-20040527
# cd src
# gimptool --install-admin rawphoto.c

Then use The GIMP to open a .nef file, and bingo it works.

Excelent.
