Thank you Gandalf, compiling into /usr/lib/kde4 did the trick. I can
now see the photos. It was a rough compile: it took over an hour, and
the CPU temp went up to 69 degrees. The computer was doing nothing
other than compiling Digikam at the time, and as soon as the
compilation ended the temp started dropping. At 65 degrees when the
fan went to high speed (and I realized that the machine was getting
hot) I put frozen foods near (but not blocking) the air input, I'm
scared to think how high it would have gotten otherwise.

A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
