I’m eagerly waiting to use the new face recognition functionality that comes with shotwell 0.31. I’m running Fedora 33 and have shotwell 0.31.3 installed from the default repository (no flatpak, rpm-based). However, there is no button whatsoever that provides the face detection functionality. This functionality is also not present in the flatpak version from registry . fedoraproject . org, although this has shotwell 0.31.3, too.
I can see and use the face detection only from the nightly . gnome . org flatpak, but I’d rather stick to a stable release channel (and personally don’t like flatpaks all too much …).
Since the OpenCV DNN module is required for face detection to work, I double-checked whether this module is installed on my PC. It is: I can use the DNN module from python and also compile a C++ file with the DNN module imported. So this does not seem to be the issue.
Rather it seems that the Fedora builds somehow exclude the face detection feature?
Any help is appreciated!
Thanks a lot for maintaining shotwell!
