Hmm, I should have seen that ;-)

Anyway, I am just testing your notes, and everything seems
to work fine.
Just a few comments:
- the files to download are *.txt
  (and not *.sh)
- I cannot get any of the help texts to work:
  For help (eg. via F1) I get:
  """The requested help file could not be found. Check that you have
  installed the documentation."""
  It is most likely that this is due to the way I installed things.
  (Though I don't know how to do this one right).

  Does this work for you?

- Near the end of the text at
  you write:
  """Important:if you run another KDE application
  (eg KDE Desktop, any k*** tool) before defining
  the KDEDIRS environment variable, digikam won't work
  or not correctly."""

  One could add:
  """Sometimes it works to do the exports as in start_digikam.sh
     at the shell prompt and then run kdeinit"""
  (At least that did work for me this time ;-)

- Just out of curiosity:
  do you have a 4 CPU machine, or why do you use   make -j 4?

So your scripts work very well - many thanks!!!

Best, Arnd
