[Digikam-users] trying to install 0.9.4

Hello All

Following the discussion today and my eventual success at installing
0.9.4 on Ubuntu 8.04 (not Kubuntu) I have attempted to retrace my steps
to determine which packages were required to enable me to compile 0.9.4

I did this by installing digikam, using apt-get autoremove and other
things, installing digikam 0.9.3 and then using sudo apt-get build-dep
digikam (for 0.9.4), and the result is below. I doubt that it is
complete (e.g. I think that at an early stage I had to install a
compiler but I did this by hit and miss and I don't remember the
details) but I post it here in case it is of any use to anybody.

Digikam is a fantastic piece of software and I think it is a pity that
it is not available in a Gnome version (f-spot does not even come
close). I have no idea how one would do such a thing but I thought I
would mention it anyway... With more facilities for handling RAW files
(or a plugin to pass the files to rawtherapee?) it would be the best
Linux photo workflow software.

Tchau, Martin

p.s. BTW, I couldn't fine a README file anywhere
