Thanks for your quick answer.
For now on, I can't find this script.
I will continue to search.
Nevertheless, I have understood (am I true ?) that Digikam 0.7 should
automatically convert old XML db file to SQLite db.
So, I currently try to compile Digikam 0.7 from source on a 
/opt/Digikam directory.
But even after I have loaded devel rpm for dependencies, 
I always have an error:
make[2]: entrant dans le répertoire «
/opt/Digikam/digikam-0.7/digikam/libs/widgets »
source='imagepreviewwidget.cpp' object='imagepreviewwidget.lo' libtool=yes \

imagepaniconwidget.h:74: error: extra qualification
‘Digikam::ImagePanIconWidget::’ on member ‘regionSelectionChanged’

I really cannot manage to find out where is the problem ?

Thanks for your highlights if you could help.
Best regards, and have a good evening.
