Summary: easier installation (compare to Building Digikam for
Dummies on Ubuntu and other linux based distro´s)
Platform: Unlisted Binaries
AssignedTo: digikam-devel at kde.org
ReportedBy: axel.krebs at t-online.de
Version: unspecified (using KDE 4.5.5)
By fortune, I got to read about "Building Digikam for Dummies on Ubuntu and
other linux based distro´s" <http://digikam.org/drupal/node/621>
So I tryed to and failed. At another place, I found, that this installation is
_not_ easy for beginners- using packages would be safer.
So I have to feel like a "dummy"?
Anyway, I saw another attempt for KRITA out of KDE-programs family."Script to
Compile Krita & Karbon for You v1.1.1 - Mintastic" under
let me, please citate the features:
!!* Auto-updates itself (never download again!)
!! * Builds and updates the latest TRUNK (instant changes, bleeding-edge code)
version of Krita and Karbon from Git
!! * Automatically uses all CPU cores to build as fast as possible (can be
switched off by changing the multicore variable to false).
* Tells you your version / commit number for when you report bugs (and you
*are* going to report them, given you're running trunk... right? ;P )
!! * Designed for people who know nothing about compiling, should all just be
copy, paste and go.
* Creates menu items on Gnome and KDE. (I'm open to supporting XFCE with some
!! * Installs dependencies on supported distros:
I am _not_ programmer but like to use (and understand) software. But the "!!"
marked features seem to be very logical. I suppose, even when switching to
other software-servers could be automated here (KDE, GIT, ..?).
Maybe you'll find this suggestion useful. I hope you do.
Because I do _not_ get repositories for KDE 4.7++ running anymore... I love
DigiKam, but can _not- install V. 2.1
Steps to Reproduce:
suggestion: to use script based installation for DigiKam
(dummy could be understood as nerd or stupid. Seems unprofessional to me.
huge simplification of installation procedure.
Standardisation, independant on users knowledge.
I recommend digiKam, whenever I can - reat piece of software
