I understand that /pictures is mounted at the system root, it' is not
Safest and easiest way is to move images back to pictures where they were. If
digikam has its tags again, move the images within digikam: create new album
ace and move all images there, keep album root at /Pictures.
If you want to separate the users, then you might want to manually modify the
db file. Don't move images back. Copy digikam.db to /Pictures/ace. Back it
up. Edit db, do it from sqlite> commandline, knoda or the firefox sqlite
extension. You have to run a update SQL statement that changes Pictures to
ace on every record in table Album, column url.
Hope that helps you a bit
