SmartDeblur has received some exposure in the mainstream press recently, and as I do a lot of digital restoration of old slides and negatives, I wanted to get it to run on Linux, as well. Should be no problem, as the app is written in QT4..
So.. Download the source from GitHub:
Then unpack the tarfile, go to the ../src directory, and run # qtmake-qt4 (or the equivalent on your flavour of Linux..). then just run # make. The compilation will show if you have anything missing… You will need the FFTW (Fast Fourier Transform..) development package, amongst others..
If all goes well, you should end up with a SmartDeblur executable in the src directory, and then just copy this to your /usr/bin (or equivalent)..
The results are impressive, but – so far – more useful for ‘forensic’ use, rather than ‘enhancement’… Still, I need to do more testing, with more combinations of parameters…
