[Digikam-users] Digikam and the KDE

Of course this is plain heresy but .... looking at digikam installation
problems I have had and that others share on the forum, many of the
difficulties appear to be rooted in the tight integration of the program
along with the requirements of its desktop environment.

As far as I can tell this is the only program running on my system that
requires a very large desktop emulator, and of a specific release build,
to operate correctly. To me, this is more than highly reminiscent of the
Microsoft bloatware from which I fled some years ago.

Are there graphic, or other, functions that can only be done under this
environment? I hardly think so. Is my desktop improved by the use of
this emulator? If so I do not see it.    ....... Are there any thoughts,
or moves towards, extracting Digikam into a more neutral environment?
