Fedora 21.
I even had Kate and "Wine application", that I just remove from the KDE
I'd rather leave Digikam in the KDE settings so I could open RAW from the
file manager (not that I do this often)... or should that be the Gnome
settings as I use Cinnamon as a desktop?

For Darktable, it's part of my usual workflow: I select a whole batch a
pictures in Digikam then import/open them in Darktable in one pass so I can
edit them before exporting TIFF back to Digikam albums.
I don't use Gimp often on pictures, but if do it'll be most often to make
some "montage" with several pictures; and in that case, I'rather want them
to be opened in one go. But Gimp different instances are independant.
That's different for Digikam because all the running instances want to
access the same database, and the whole system get stuck.
