I'm looking for an easy to use panorama stitcher for Linux that doesn't have too many dependencies.
I've tried Hugin, but it failed me: often didn't even match the images – and even if I added a bunch of control points manually, generating a useful result image was a mess and much too complicated. Photos taken with a smartphone often lack the lens information Hugin wants to know before loading, and I've got no idea where to get those details from (guess that's the main issue here for me, which then cuases the "bad results").
The one built-in to Gimp (formerly distributed separately as "Pandora") can only be used for real simple things, and otherwise fails e.g. with the perspective.
Took a look at fotoxx – but that wanted to first index all my images, which I do not want (what for, if I only want to create one panorama? I don't want the stitcher to manage my entire collection).
I'm currently using Linux Mint Cinnamon, so please no KDE apps (I don't want to draw in half of the KDE desktop just for this task). Being in the standard repositories (or even a PPA) would be a big plus. Should be free (as in "free speach" and "free beer").
Note: When I say "panorama" I don't mean 360° but rather 2-5 images to be joined ("wide shot").
