Aha, you mean like that. There is nothing wrong building it all by yourself,
in fact it can be both fun and educational, but there's no real gain and you
don't need to put down the time or the hassle to install plenty of
development versions of packages and building tools. Also it's much easier
to maintain installed packages (mine, others or your own) and how they
effect your system than manually building and install a local or global

With my packages you also can use the power of libgphoto2 to transfer images
from a bunch of cameras that are disabled in the official Ubuntu 11.10
packages of Digikam 2.1.1. With my packages you also get support of the
latest exiv2 0.22 for handling image meta-data. My build also use the latest
version of OpenCV 2.3.1 instead of the official 2.1 for backend handling of
the face detection stuff. Don't think there is any difference for the user
which version of OpenCV you use even though the newer version have new
features for developers to implement if they want.

Have fun with the new goodies. Keep the feedback coming so both Digikam and
my packages can be as good as it gets.
