           Summary: Clean-up configuration in digiKam and showFoto
           Product: digikam
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: unspecified
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: digikam-devel kde org
        ReportedBy: heiner heiner-lamprecht net

Version:           0.9.1-svn / 2006-12-29 (using KDE KDE 3.5.5)

The dialog in digiKam and showFoto for activating the plugins uses a lot of useless space.  All plugin names start with "ImagePlugin_", all descriptions start with "digiKam-Modul for".  Both can be removed without any loss of information.

The configuration for the kipi-plugins should be merged with the one for the digiKam-plugins.  Most users will not care for the architectural differences.  They just want to configure plugins.

If it is not possible to merge the plugins in one list, it might  be possible to have one configuration page "Plugins" with two tabs, both lists should than look similar.

Is there a reason, why the kipi-plugins can not be used in showFoto?

As for me, showFoto is just a viewer of the digiKam-package.  So it would be better to have the configuration in sync with digiKam, especially the settings for "ICC Profiles", "IO files", "Slide Show" and "Image Plugins".  The "General Settings" in showFoto can be integrated as "showFoto" into the digiKam configuration.

The shortcut configuration should also be in sync.
