           Summary: Digikam finds but fails to use libkdcraw

           Version: unspecified

         Component: general
        AssignedTo: digikam-devel kde org
        ReportedBy: kde happyjack org

Version:           0.9.2 (using KDE KDE 3.5.7)

This is, I believe, related to 146312, which I have posted to.  That bug, however, is closed, so I've opened a new one.

The immediate problem is that libkdcraw is installed in a "non-standard" location.  This location is, though, where digikam is being installed.  Moreover, there are pkg-config files for libkdcraw.

Thus digikam is able to find where I installed libkdcraw.  It sets LIBKDCRAW_CFLAGS and LIBKDCRAW_LIBS in the Makefiles.  The problem is that neither of these variables is actually used, so the libkdcraw include path (and presumably at link-time, the library path) is unknown.  As stated in bug 146312, digikam shouldn't search the entire drive for non-standard install locations.  It should, however, use libraries that it does find, regardless of where they are.
