Do you have Capture One for Linux?



  • Peter Goodman

    Given the obtrusive nature of Windows (now forcing their programs to open with no option to opt-out) and given that some of us are tethering through various means, Windows makes the tethering nearly impossible without going through a constant re-set of the programs. 


    Though not in a pro level at this moment, and given that Linux has advanced tot he point of working seamlessly with so many other programs, it would be highly advantageous for the CO team to associate to the Linux system. 


  • Gregory Reshetniak

    I would buy a license on day one of Linux support.

  • Bret Simko

    I would also buy a license for Linux immediately.

    same here: Would buy a linux license immediately!

    I believe that is THE chance for capture one to occupy this new market and be the undebatable leader there!

  • Edwin Fajardo

    Please create a version of Capture One 20 for Linux. You have a Mac Version which is already almost a Unix variant, so it would be easy for you to port Capture One to Open-Suse Linux Tumbleweed, the most stable version of OpenSuse Linux almost close to the cutting edge version. I am currently a Windows Capture One user.

  • Benjamin Bezine

    +1 for Linux xupport

  • Aleš Matýsek

    Very miss C1 on Linux.

  • B. J. v. V.

    Its the only thing holding me back from switching to Linux full-time!!

    + 1 for Linux support!!!!!

    I would love Capture One running on Manjaro linux. I am really interested by this, including the version PRO ;D 

  • Fredrik S

    With Linux Support I will definitely ditch Lightroom. Linux is my obvious choice if I could use it.

  • Markus Iofcea

    I would also love to run Capture One on Linux. My System 76 Laptop is waiting. 

  • Marcus

    I'm a Capture One Pro user and I dual boot currently (in the future maybe just Linux), and I quite miss Capture One whenever I'm in Linux, and I have to resort to alternatives. Plus making changes to photos outside Capture One is quite messy as Catalogs don't auto-detect changes.

    Thank you!

    Edit: Everyone wanting this remember to upvote the Feature Request here as well:

  • Bejamin Graham

    I'm back in linux (Fedora) after a haitus of a few years and it is so much better now. Its getting better all the time. I would gladly pay for C1 on Linux. I'm already a loyal user for some years in Mac and then in Windows. Fact is I'd prefer to stay in linux all the time. C1 is basically the only thing stopping me. Please Phase One. Make this happen. Linux is a mature operating system now more than ever before. Its great and its time to join the party.

  • Brian Gant

    I run Mac, Windows, and Linux desktops and have been consolidating (returning) to the latter given the current state of Mac hardware (especially way more expensive than usuals).

    This would let me run my preferred editor on my preferred platform, and would definitely get some (more) money thrown your direction. Please and thank you!

  • Laura Penley

    I would love C1 for Linux. Please make this happen!

  • Tudor Stan

    Capture One is the last thing tying me to Windows. I would fully switch to linux within the second would it have a version of Capture One.

  • Dawid Chorabik

    It's really frustrating that I can get best video processing SW (Davinci Resolve) on Linux, one of best DAW (Reaper), but no RAW processing image SW. Make Capture One at least Wine friendly please!

  • Nicolas Det


    Apple stoped covering the pro market and Windows is not great..

    I would really appreciate CaptureOne for Linux! Even for a pricely upgrade.

    -> You may only support the most popular distribution.


    Look at Blakmagic, they do support Linux for Resolve



  • Intenditore

    Yes, WE NEED IT!
    I will even buy a standalone licence. Especially that's not that hard to port it on another *nix system. Not a complete rewrite at least

  • Vit Kreisinger

    I have Capture One for Fujifilm ver. 12 right now running on Windows 7 because Win 10 sucks.

    I'm ready to pay for Capture One PRO for Linux immediately.

  • Mattias Agar

    Registered only to comment that I would ditch Adobe in a heartbeat if there's a Linux verison available of Capture One.

    Currently I dual boot Linux and Windows, with the sole reason there isn't a good photo editing software for Linux. Would love to be able to ditch both Adobe and Windows

  • Dušan Saiko

    I pay for Adobe and Affinity products.
    If you release a Linux verions, I migrate immediatelly.

    (actually would be quite interested how difficult it could technically be when you already have a multi-platform product).

  • max tsygankov

    I create account only for write this comment, i think many people too lazy for it, but i do.

    We extremly need capture one on linux!

  • Ole-Henrik Jakobsen

    I created an account just to support this, I would get a license asap if this would be a reality. I have worked a lot with Darktable and ART/RawTherapee, and while they're good software, I would like to use something professional without having to dual boot into windows.

    Please make this happen.

  • FirstName LastName

    Please provide C1 for linux, it would be immensely beneficial, and you'd break into a market adobe has refused to touch

  • Kiernan May

    Another vote for C1 on linux

  • MERE

    I just started to use Capture One for Nikon and I´m extremely happy with its RAW development results. Therefore I would also like to use it under Linux when changing my environment to some Ubuntu flavour !!!

  • Richard Ruth

    I would love to see a native Linux port of Capture One.  I have never found a really good raw editor for Linux.  (Editors exist for Linux but they do not compare to Capture One.)

    With that said, I have run Capture One within a Win10 VM (VirtualBox) for years hosted on a rather beefy Linux system.  Capture One's OpenCL does not work from within the VM (so no processing acceleration from your GPU)  but everything else does with an occasional issue that usually appears when CO is updated.   My CO sessions, catalogues and images  are on the Linux host (ext4 fs) and accessed via VirtualBox's "shared folders".  (Yes, you need a fast system and give the VM 8 cores and 16GB ram.  For color calibration I use a NEC wide gamut monitor and there is a Linux version of NEC's Spectraview monitor calibration software. Printing works fine to Epson SureColor printer.)



    I have been a sports photographer for 3 years.  I have been using Linux since 2009.  I shoot in Raw and convert with Raw Therapee.  I would have no problem spending for a compatible version of Capture One on Linux.  I mean come on, Neat Image has a stand alone version for linux.  I bought that.  It works very nice.    Currently Raw Therapee and Gimp are my go to and I have made it work fine for the last three years.  Would not have a problem if there was another option.

    This would be great instead making broken clone and healing brushes.
