What works

Everything. I tested : exif date/time modification, mass edit of IPTC fields, export to .csv, use of templates for metadata edition and for export, image rotation (with thumbnail), and thumbnail rotation without image rotation, recursive (view subdirectory content) or non recursive display, bookmarks to folders, metadata backup to a .exi file, metadata suppression, metadata restore .

I could not compare performances  with my previous use under Windows, because the Ubuntu laptop I use is based an a 64 nits processor (Turion, Pc bought in 2006), but its hdd seems very slow.

Hdd throughput measured using CdCheck /wine to compute md5 on a full tree of pictures (a few GB).

My old Win98SE PC (Athlon XP1500, motherboard MSI KT266pro2A) : throughput on "middle size" files (digital pictures, size from 1 to 4 MB) around 50MB/s (ATA 133 udma)

My Laptop : same type of data, ubuntu 10.04, Turion 64 MT32 : throughput < 20MB/s.

What does not

After heavy processing (many operations, each on hundreds of pictures), warning (in german, even if localised in french or english) about a resource problem. The current operation can be carried out, but the warning coming again very often, it's better to stop and launch again.
Only disturbing, never lost data, nor in windows after years, nor with wine after 2 weeks of semi intensive use (intensive for a while but not for full days long).


What was not tested

Slideshow creation, i never use it.
I did not test every configuration in the "options" dialog.

Additional Comments

"maintaining" this program seems rather easy, because it installs easily and works fine, despite its elderness. I just wondered if it could even be **better** than in windows: is there any workaround for memory leaks, or at least a way of understanding what happens ? Installs in wine 1.2 using an"exifersetup.exe" file.

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO install (English, german and french users)
­Installation instructions for english or german users:
Straightforward: execute exifersetup.exe using wine (invoke wine in a terminal or right-clic "open with wine" in Nautilus).
On first launch, choose language between german and english. If you choose "English", you'll have to close Exifer and launch it a second "first" time.
To switch back from french to English: french localization is a patch over English localization. To come back to english, you'll have first, if needed, to backup your configuration data to a .reg file using regedit, uninstall Exifer and reinstall it .

Pour utiliser en français :
- lancer sous wine le fichier exifersetup.exe (clic droit "ouvrir avec wine" sous Nautilus ou dans un terminal), mais ne pas lancer exifer en fin d'installation (décocher : "lancer exifer" avant de cliquer sur "Terminer" )
- lancer sous wine Patch-FR-Exifer-2.1.5.exe et installer jusqu'au bout
- lancer exifer par Applications>Wine>Programmes>Exifer>Exifer
Au premier lancement, une fenêtre "Sprache auswählen" s'ouvre et propose 2 langues : "Deutsch" et "English".
Sélectionner "English" et cliquer "Ok". Le patch français étant un "détournement" de la localisation en Anglais, pour retourner à l'Anglais après passage en français, il faut, après sauvegarde éventuelle de la configuration sous regedit, désinstaller puis réinstaller.
Une dernière fenêtre "Bestätigung" ("Confirmation") s'ouvre avec un texte en allemand et en anglais. Cliquer "Oui" sous "should exifer be closed ?".
­Le second lancement est le bon, il est en français.
