canon eos utility

Postby stevet44 » Thu Mar 21, 2013 1:54 pm

Will the Canon EOS utility work with mint. I have an old laptop with XP home onit and shooting tethered on this laptop with XP is too slow. I thought to install Mint and remove XP and everything else as I will only use this laptop as a live view screen for taking product shots and nothing else.
Any advice greatly appreciated.

Nope that is a windows program for windows.
There is emulation to run windows programs thru Wine but doubt that one would work.

There is darktable that is in the repo's and can be installed and does tethering.

And is a high end Image Editing software like Lightroom

You didn't say which mint as some other specific programs are available.
Digikam 3,RawTherapee may also? Just have to do the foot work and check them out.

Good luck as use darktable myself but don't do tethering tho believe it supports it.
