           Summary: can't open photo in the external application from
           Product: digikam
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: unspecified
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: digikam-devel at kde.org
        ReportedBy: jacekpoplawski at gmail.com

Version:           0.9.5beta3-1 (using KDE 4.2.0)
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    Unlisted Binary Package

There is one thing which stops me from using Digikam. 

I work on RAW files and I use ufraw for processing raws and Gimp for further
editing. I am aware of fact that there is RAW editor in the Digikam, but I want
to use ufraw.

However, I have one big problem. I tried many many times but I can't find any
way to open photo from Digikam in the external application. I can only do it
manually, by looking on filename in Digikam and using my file manager to open
this file in ufraw or rawstudio or rawtherapee, etc.

I don't undertand this limitation. I tried to look into file type settings in
KDE, but for some reason Digikam don't use it when working with RAW files (.orf
in my case). It allows me to open file only in the showphoto application.

Please allow me to use Digikam for organizing my photos and other applications
for editing, please show me the way to call any application from Digikam, or
please fix this if this is a bug.
