Installing a package

You can install digiKam using pre-compiled version. This is done by your distribution. A disadvantage is that in some cases the version provided by your distribution is not the latest stable version the digiKam team has released.

Internationalization

If you installed digikam using your Linux distribution package, language files should
be included with it and you can run digikam in any supported language.

You can change the default language by using Help Menu in digiKam.

If you don't find the required language in it, you can add a language by
installing that particular language pack. For example, in debian based distros,
if you want to add "french" language, you can do it by following:

# sudo apt-get install language-pack-kde-fr-base
# sudo apt-get install language-pack-kde-fr

Note: Windows and MacOS installers include already all translation files.
