You're using Ubuntu? Go to http://ubuntuforums.org/ and check there. If you do 
not find the answer ask. Even if you didn't mention in your first mails I 
would have known that you are quite new. 
Search for the Netiquette and read it.

IMHO Linux isn't any harder to use than Windows. There are just more people 
around you who know Windows.

Well you should ask the Ubuntu guys. The digikam developers simply provide the 
code and the documentation. It depends on your distribution what will be 
installed and what not.
Best example is Ubuntu itself. If you try to play a video, but you do not have 
the codec installed it asks you if you want to install it. Why dosn't Ubuntu 
ask you if you want to install the digikam-doc package when you open the help 
and it isn't installed?

And to the OpenSuse guys: It isn't the fault of digikam if OpenSuse doesn't 
provide the doc Package. Ask OpenSuse why.


PS: Guys, digikam is great! One of my most favourite applications!

If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs, then
you clearly don't understand the situation.
