Update 15-Aug-17:

Photomatix for Linux version 1.1 is currently in beta testing. If you are interested in helping us test it, you are welcome to download the beta from this page.


To install Photomatix:

  1. Double-click on the .deb package you downloaded from the above link.
  2. The software installer should open. Click on the Install button of the software installer's window.

If you prefer to install via the command-line, or installing with the instructions above didn't work, you have two other options for installing Photomatix. First, open a terminal window, then do one of the following:

  1. If you have gdebi installed, you can install using this command:

    sudo gdebi /path/to/downloaded-file.deb

  2. Otherwise, you can use this command:

    dpkg -i /path/to/downloaded-file.deb

    Then if there are any errors about unresolved dependencies:

    sudo apt-get install -f
