Two weeks ago I updated from digikam rc to digikam2
I am using 
for my Kubuntu 11.4 KDE 4.7. After updating Digikam2 it didn't start anymore.

I tried a reinstall and found out, the problem is openni-utils and llibopenni. 
They doesn't configure.

Using synaptic I get the following message (from german):
E: openni-utils: subprozess installed post installation Script gives error 132 
E: libopenni: dependency problems - not configured

digikam shows libopenni as dependency (anybody an idea what for libopenni is?)
libopenni depends on openni-utils
openni-utils has error 132

Philip didn't have an answer. He said:
"Looks like you don't have package libopenni installed that should be
installed as a dependency but might not do so. Try to install
libopenni first and then openni-utils."
But: libopenni is dependent on openni-utils, not otherwise! Even if I think 
thats strange. Using apt, aptitude or synaptic, all the same problem.

I downloaded the debs different times on different days, I dont think its a 
download corruption problem.

Since i can not use openni-utils and so not use digikam 2, i went back to 
digikam 1.9, which is working. But I am not happy with that, now having two 

I didn't make it to install openni-utils from source. I thought it might be a 
problem with missing SSE3 on, as my pentium mobile 4 doesn't have it.
Didn't find anything about openni and digikam on the web.

any ideas?

cheers, manfred
