Firstly, apologies for using Outlook style quoting below.  It's all I've got access to at the moment.

I don't know if this is related, but when I start the program I get the message "Unable to use MPlayer multimedia backend.  The shared library was not found."  I press OK and get a similar message about VLC.  I press OK and get one about MPlayer again.  This repeats 7 times for each of those programs, then digiKam starts, and seems to run ok, apart from the Light Table problem.

Subject: [Digikam-users] Images not visible on Light Table

I've just installed digiKam on a Windows XP machine using KDE-Installer.  I've ended up with v1.0.0-beta5 and KDE 4.3.4, and I've never used digiKam or KDE before.

When I add photos to the Light Table, I can't see them there.  Each one that I add increments the count displayed at the bottom of the Light Table, but each pane remains blank, displaying "Drag and drop and image here".

The Thumbbar displays a blue folder symbol for each image I try to add (even if it's the same one again), instead of the image itself.

Any idea what has gone wrong here?  Something else I need to install?

Apologies if this has been asked before, I couldn't see anything in the archives.
