Hi all,

I don't know what's wrong here, but changing the digikam install path to 
/usr/lib/kde4 instead of a custom path resolved the issue, now I finally have a 
working digikam 0.10! The thumbnails, kipi-plugins, lensfun, marble widget, 
it's all there =)

I can see improvements in many places, and overall high potential for a superb 
program. So first of all, let me thank the developers for all the hard work 
that you have obviously put into it! The new search methods, in particular 
searching on a map, look fantastic, and also the lens correction tool is 
greatly appreciated.

On the other hand, there are still many bugs around. To begin with, clicking a 
thumbnail does not show the picture, but only white screen :o ... In edit 
mode, I can see and edit my pics, though. 
Well, I'll write some bug reports in the next days.

Until then, thanks for digikam, and best regards,
