Ubuntu Intrepid Packages for Digikam 0.10 (KDE4) (Updated)

Finally I’ve stumbled across packages of the KDE4 version of Digikam (0.10) which is currently in beta.

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/digikam-experimental/ppa/ubuntu intrepid main

They’re part of the Digikam Experimental Personal Package Archive (PPA) and so track the latest development releases (0.10.0-rc1 as I write this) and work for me on Ubuntu Intrepid with KDE 4.2 (at the moment) – remember to install Marble!


Many thanks to Maarten Fonville who previously provided packages that this story originally pointed to, and who commented with the above alternative archive.

  1. darn. spoke too soon. I’ve installed all Marble related packages but am getting this error:

    digikam: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libdigikamcore.so.1: undefined symbol: _ZN6Marble12MarbleWidget16addPlaceMarkDataERK7QString

    have you seen this problem before? Thanks!

  2. feicipet: Probably you need to include one or more of the “PPA dependencies” listed on “Maarten Fonville’s Personal Package Archive” (see link above).

  3. Hi,

    I encouter the same problem.
    However this works on another laptop where I did this manipulation last week. Maybe a recent update broke marble/digikam ?

  4. well, I installed the digikam package at the same time as I installed RC1. so maybe this was due to mismatched dependencies with RC1 packages. Maybe if Chris were to upgrade his packages from Beta2 to RC1 as well we would know for sure? πŸ˜›

  5. Hmm, I’ve been trying to rebuild Maarten’s package using dpkg-buildpackage without success, it fails with the error:

    dh_install: digikam missing files (usr/share/icons/hicolor/*/apps/digikam.png), aborting

    which now I’ve looked at Maarten’s build logs is the same reason his packages aren’t getting rebuilt. πŸ™

    Any ideas ?

  6. Hey,

    I found this site now by accident πŸ™‚
    but I am not updating my packages anymore, since the 0.10 packages are now included in Ubuntu Jaunty, so you can fetch them from packages.ubuntu.com


  7. happy to report that:

    it verks! it verks!!! it VERRRRKS!!!!!!!!!!

    oh well, now to get over the learning curve of a new version again πŸ™‚ but I’m more than happy all the same… my flickr account has been neglected ever since I lost the use of digikam, that’s how important it is to me…

  8. I think the KDE Experimental PPA mentioned in the article seems to be picking them up.

    # apt-cache policy digikam
