ok, my last comment in http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=136643 and this one seem to me to indicate there are still problems:

1: Open With can only be configured using global KDE configuration, which is now very hard to find on e.g. kubuntu, since kcontrol is no longer in the menu.

2: This leads to unintuitive results, because the file-association dialog is not very easy to configure correctly (too many types and too chaotic in the end result)

3: the raw files don't have an associated mime type and even if they did, digikam seems to classify them as octet-stream, which is not specific enough.

So I suppose to solve this several things could be done:

- give digikam an additional configure option to add programs to the open with dialog, these options should show up in addition to the global file-associations

- digikam should also be able to configure the default to use from within digikam

- digikam should use/register the mimetypes it supports, including all RAW formats, I don't know what the proper way is to do this, but if digikam knows about a format, so can KDE and thus, so can the file-associations.
