No, Easystroke is really easy to configure. My description seems  
complicated because I use text and not screenshots...

In fact, to basically configure Easystroke :

-You set which mouse button is used to make gesture
-You add an action and give it a name
-You save which gesture is associated with your action by simply drawing  
it (using the defined mouse button)
-You set what the action do : "Command" "keys"(what is used for digikam  
shorcut), text, and other things I don't use actually.

The only thing is to found sufficiently differents gestures, for digikam  
ratings, I choose to go up and down the number of time of which rating I  
want (for rating 4 I draw a capital "M").


After that, if you want to use the same gesture for different things with  
different software, I can set some action only for a specific app (see the  
top part of screenshot), you just have to "add an app" and click on its  
windows to determine which.

You can do more complex things, but the base is easy.

After that, you just have to create tag shortcut in Digikam...
