    Red face How-to: Samsung raw photos (SRW) support in gThumb


    I was looking for an alternative to Shotwell workflow to import photos from an SD card and found that gThumb doesn't support the Samsung raw photos SRW files.

    So I created a mime type package file (/usr/share/mime/packages/samsung-raw.xml):
    HTML Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <mime-info xmlns="">
      <mime-type type="image/x-samsung-srw">
        <comment>Samsung raw image</comment>

        <sub-class-of type="image/x-dcraw"/>
        <magic priority="50">
          <match value="MM\x00\x2A\x00\x00" type="string" offset="0"/>
        <glob pattern="*.SRW"/>
        <glob pattern="*.srw"/>
        <alias type="image/x-samsung-srw"/>
    ... and updated the mime database with sudo update-mime-database /usr/share/mime

    Now Nautilus can distinguish the SRW files from tiff and so I could assign Geeqie as the viewer application for SRW, and gThumb understands it as a raw image format and is even able to display it.
