I found that the original raw converters from camera manufacturers in 
general are easier in handling raws than anything I found on linux. 
(Except the crap of software that Sony delivers, which is really 
useless, and a disgrace for such lovely cameras...)

For Win and Mac there is DxO Optics Pro which can apply all the camera 
suggestions of many manufacturers (e.g. make an image just like the 
cameras jpg, which sometimes is a good base to start). Unfortunately 
it's price is obscene, but maybe you can find a free version somewhere...

I do that all the time. Jpgs don't use up much space and for many 
purposes they are just good enough.
