Professional Photo Management with the Power of Open Source

digiKam Software Collection 4.4.0 released…

by digiKam

Dear digiKam fans and users,

The digiKam Team is proud to announce the release of digiKam Software Collection 4.4.0. This release includes some new features:

  • Slideshow support multi-monitors computer and use a new OSD widget. Users can also change Tags and Labels through keyboard shortcuts.
  • New keyboard shortcut to switch on/off color managed view for thumbnails and preview.
  • New keyboard shortcuts to improve usability while photo review (as to switch focus on text edit widget, or to toggle tags view). It's also possible to navigate between pictures using PageUp/PageDown while editing properties through captions/tags sidebar.

After a second long bugs triage since 4.3.0 release, we have worked hard to close another sets of reported issues.. See the new list of the issues closed in digiKam 4.4.0 available through the KDE Bugtracking System.

The digiKam software collection tarball can be downloaded from the KDE repository.

Have fun playing with your photos using this new release,

digiKam Team…

hmm

Is this now the trend in KDE land, to call everything a Software Collection?

DigiKam is mature, but to call it a SC is a bit over the top

digiKam =

- core
- kipi-plugins
- libkexiv2
- libkdcraw
- libkipi
- libkface
- libkgeomap

This is a Software Collection. That all !

Thanks for this comment! I

Thanks for this comment! I was always confused as to what “software collection” meant. So, digikam 4.4 is out.

Thank you

Thank you for Digikam. I am almost done tagging my entire photo colleciton (3000 so far) with facial recognition. And the best part is that my data, my annotations, and my tagging. All remain mine. That is the most valuable part of free software.

Install on Kubuntu 14.04

It was a nightmare with DigiKam 4.3.0 but the new one 4.4.0 works nicely - no problems so far, Videos, Images, printing, tagging, viewing. I like the integrated image editing a lot - Very useful interfaces and workflows. Thanks to digiKam team!

Thanks to Philip Johnsson for his backports to install it on Kubuntu: https://launchpad.net/~philip5/+archive/ubuntu/kubuntu-backports.

I previously had ver. 4.0.0

I previously had ver. 4.0.0 installed from another ppa, which I removed. It worked but was unstable, crashing without warning 3-4 times a day. I installed 4.4.0 on my Kubuntu 14.04 machine (recent install) and now all I get is the splash screen. Then nothing.

I tried launching DigiKam from a console and this is the errors I’m getting:

charles@Charles-Kubuntu:~$ digikam

Thanks.

I’ve installed ibus and now

I’ve installed ibus and now I’m not getting the error concerning it but the program still crashes:

Exactly the same isue here :(

If you are going to use my

If you are going to use my kubuntu-backport PPA then it’s also dependent on packages found in my “extra” PPA and also that you use KDE 4.14.x that the kubuntu team provides in their PPA. Just using my kubuntu-backport PPA isn’t enough.

Hope that solves things.

My Kubuntu install is fresh

My Kubuntu install is fresh from 2 days ago and KDE is 4.14.1. Check.

Removed Digikam 4.0.0 (which I’d returned to while I waited for a solution).

Added your “extra” PPA to my sources.

Updated everything that needed it (18 files).

Re-installed Digikam.

Started it and now it works.

Thanks!

But… crashed again. Just

But… crashed again. Just clicking an image to display it does it.

I’m sending a full incident report to the developers.

Still crashing 10 times a day

Still crashing 5+ times a day! I’m starting to get rather annoyed.

Is there anything I can do to resolve this?

I’m starting to think about dropping digiKam in favor of… something else. It’s nice to have new features. But not at the price of stability.

Thanks!

If you use Ubuntu then make

If you use Ubuntu then make sure to get your libsqlite3-0 package updated and don’t use the buggy 3.8.2 version that comes as default.

I’m using Kubuntu 14.04 LTS.

I’m using Kubuntu 14.04 LTS. I have done all the updates. And that’s where trouble seems to be coming from. Yesterday, 186 files had to be updated, requiring a reboot. I did this. And now Digikam 4.4.0 won’t even start (again!).

Here is what happens at the console:

charles@Charles-Kubuntu:~$ digikam
Object::connect: No such signal org::freedesktop::UPower::DeviceAdded(QDBusObjectPath)
Object::connect: No such signal org::freedesktop::UPower::DeviceRemoved(QDBusObjectPath)
digikam: symbol lookup error: digikam: undefined symbol: _ZNK11KExiv2Iface14AltLangStrEdit8textEditEv
charles@Charles-Kubuntu:~$

Similar errors to what I had before I added the “extra” PPA, etc.

Thanks.

“If you use Ubuntu then make

“If you use Ubuntu then make sure to get your libsqlite3-0 package updated and don’t use the buggy 3.8.2 version that comes as default.”

That seems to be precisely the version I’ve got presently. Where/how do I get a newer one?

Thanks.

“If you use Ubuntu then make

“If you use Ubuntu then make sure to get your libsqlite3-0 package updated and don’t use the buggy 3.8.2 version that comes as default.”

I was able to download a replacement library at:

http://packages.ubuntu.com/utopic/libsqlite3-0

Then I did:

$ sudo dpkg -i libsqlite3-0_3.8.6-1_amd64.deb

and got:

[sudo] password for charles:
(Lecture de la base de données… 170651 fichiers et répertoires déjà installés.)
Préparation du décompactage de libsqlite3-0_3.8.6-1_amd64.deb …

Paramétrage de libsqlite3-0:amd64 (3.8.6-1) …
Traitement déclenché pour libc-bin (2.19-0ubuntu6.3) …

I then reactivated the “extra” and other PPAs and updated Digikam back to 4.4.0. in Muon package manager.

Now Digikam 4.4.0 started normally (which it had repeatedly refused to do) and has not crashed yet, after about 1 hour of use. So far so good then. I’ll keep you posted how it’s doing in a couple days.

Thanks.

Thank you Philip! I was sure

Thank you Philip! I was sure I had extra ppa, but I must have removed it while cleaning my ppa list :( Sure tt works now. You are doing a great job, thank you very much!

On a side note: is it only me, right now on album view the smallest size of thumbnail is 128px. In 4.0-4.2 it was still 118, in 3.x series even less. Is there any way to change that?

update in native ubuntu 14.04

Update from digikam 4.0 to 4.4 does not work for me using philipp/extra and kubuntu/backports.

I have a “native” Ubuntu 14.04 installed.

Die folgenden Pakete haben unerfüllte Abhängigkeiten:
digikam : Hängt ab von: libkgeomap1 (>= 1.0~digikam4.3.0) aber 1.0~digikam4.0.0-0ubuntu1~ubuntu14.04~ppa2 soll installiert werden
E: Probleme können nicht korrigiert werden, Sie haben zurückgehaltene defekte Pakete.

Any suggestions or workarounds,

Georg

*If you use (k)ubuntu 14.04

*If you use (k)ubuntu 14.04 with standard KDE 4.13.x packages that comes with the official (k)ubuntu release then you only use my “extra” PPA and not the other.
* If you use (k)ubuntu 14.04 with KDE 4.14.x that are provided with the kubuntu teams Kubuntu Backports PPA on Launchpad then you need BOTH my “extra” PPA AND my kubuntu-backports PPA.

My kubuntu-backports PPA only have special rebuilds of packages that need to be rebuilt aginst KDE 4.14.x to work with the newer KDE version. my “extra” PPA also have other updated packages that Digikam need with my builds.

If you use Linux Mint then it’s up to you to find out what combination of PPAs you might need but I don’t have or use Linux Mint to test my packages.

Actually I use Mint KDE. And

Actually I use Mint KDE. And it works exactly the same way as for Ubuntu :)

digikam keep crashing

I update to the latest through extra/ppa and now digikam is keep crashing. I even try to rollback some digikam and exiv2 from .deb from /var/cache/apt/archive and it has the same crash. So don’t know what’s going on.

When I try to close the tips window, nothing happens. The little cursor circle keeps spinning and spinning. I am running windows 7 and I have now tried several versons of digiKam, and nothing helps.

If you have a lot of pictures, try to see if you can load only a part of them by distributing in several albums. Once you have done this, take a tour over these first albums and configure some aspects of digikam, interface, writing data, etc. No tags, no geolocation yet and no-nay-never face recognition, please. Close digikam and open it again and go foward adding more pics. If you have trouble, see if after closing are there task that still running (digikam, kdelauncher and so) and kill them, then restart digikam. Step by step you will see it'll behave better. (in windows there are things that will always crash, but other will be corrected) Yes, it's something like to let the program to adapt to your computer (or viceversa) Continue step to step and make a database backup (only digikam.db, I mean) Start with tags (do not hurry) If you are able to, check database (I test identical copies of database file against linux and windows) Be patient. Most stable version for windows is 3.4 then, 4.2, and face recognition is a nightmare and has its own database in "C:\Documents and Settings\user\Program data\.kde\share\apps\libkface\database" It can grow very, very much; don't recommend using it until gets improved.<br> Good luck.</p> </div> <div class="links">» </div> </div> </div><a id="comment-20935"></a> <div class="comment comment-published"> <h3 class="title"><a href="/node/719#comment-20935" class="active">error digikam</a></h3> <div class="submitted">Submitted by job (not verified) on Wed, 2014-11-19 15:46.</div> <div class="content"> <p>Digikam "hangs"in facerecognition mode.
