Feature wise, the not-very-open-source Picasa from Google is possibly
similar to Aperture but on Linux it's very wine-y.

I use DigiKam a bit but I wish it had a straightforward workflow from
camera to selection to editing to web gallery. Its import and
organising is pretty good though. I have used F-Spot a bit and its web
gallery integration is good but IIRC it relies on some mono libraries
so may not suit everyone.
