           Summary: 'Ctrl+F6' Conflict with KDE global shortcut
           Product: digikam
           Version: 0.9.4-beta5
          Platform: unspecified
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: Usability
        AssignedTo: digikam-devel kde org
        ReportedBy: msp debian org

Version:           0.9.4-beta5 (using 3.5.9, Debian Package 4:3.5.9.dfsg.1-4 (lenny/sid))
Compiler:          Target: powerpc-linux-gnu
OS:                Linux (ppc) release 2.6.18-5-powerpc

I have been confused for a while why 'Ctrl+F6' wouldn't "Add to light table" per the Image Menu.

So I checked the setup under configure shortcuts, sure enough 'Ctrl+F6' is assigned to "Add to light table", but if you try and map to 'Ctrl+F6' KDE returns with the error message:

The 'Ctrl+F6' key combination has already been allocated to the global action "Switch to Desktop 6".

Even though I don't have 'Desktop 6'.  'Ctrl+F[1-4]' do switch desktops.

Perhaps digikam needs to use an alternative to 'Ctrl+F6' as that allready seems to be taken by a KDE global action.
