ufraw is not really useful, when all its features are disabled.

Missing features are:
- lensfun
- contrast support
- fits (not sure about this one, but I don't see dependencies on cfitsio)

Please add the configure switches to the PKGBUILD and update the dependencies.

Additional info:
* affected version 0.18-5

Steps to reproduce:
Open a RAW image with Gimp and take a look at the missing features (that every other distribution has). ;)
This task depends upon

Makes one wonder why those features need to be activated manually. Maybe these features aren't in a state where it's safe to use them.

The website says that lensfun is not ready to use. Despite this comment (the author is a perfectionist!), I highly recommend to add lensfun to the default features, because it will do lots of harm not considering the lens corrections when converting pictures from RAW formats.

It appears that the author of the tool tried to minimize the dependency requirements, so that the packagers don't get problems. But on other distributions you see all the features enabled usually (or at least available as an option).

Extra information: I migrated from FreeBSD and ufraw looks a bit lightweight on Arch for me and now even increasingly annoying, because I really need many features for my photos.

gimp-ufraw is an orphan. Assigning to last packager.

Since there is no package maintainer, I tried to make a patch. Please review it, I have no experience with this. It seems to build, install and function correctly (recognizes my camera lens!).

One further remark:
- build depends on cinepaint and I explicitly enabled cinepaint (I don't know if this is correct)

@cinek, thanks for the patch. Please submit it upstream to the gimp-ufraw developers.

@ise, could you please move this package to [community] (unless you don't wish to maintain it). Last packager (Snowman) doesn't seem to be interested, and you maintain the gimp package. Thanks.

This is not a patch for gimp-ufraw. This is a patch for your PKGBUILD file in the ArchLinux distribution. I made a diff against the Arch Linux packages repo.

Ok, thanks. Changing the category.

The patch works fine. Opened RAW-file in GIMP, my lens was also correctly detected by ufraw.

Adopted gimp-ufraw. I'll look at this issue.

Updated the package in [community]. Thanks Martin Sugioarto, added your name as a contributor to the PKGBUILD.
