How to Install Darktable 3.8.1 via PPA in Ubuntu:

The software provides official DEB packages via the OBS repository. And, it also available to install via the universal Flatpak package.

For those prefer Ubuntu PPA, I’ve uploaded the packages into this unofficial PPA for Ubuntu 18.04, Ubuntu 20.04, and Ubuntu 21.10. And below is the step by step how to install guide.
