Same here; using Mint for several years - DigiKam has always 
worked nicely. Though there are extra repositories I

And Kubuntu IS known for having problems with KDE ;-)

No, but maybe you'd do it just to get more info on the problem.

Maybe I missed something; did you tell which version of Mint 
and which version of DigiKam/Kipi etc... ?
