Hi Ubuntu users that use my PPA

I have just uploaded packages of Digikam 5 beta 2 for Ubuntu 15.10. I
packaged it so it can be tested as something extra to my packages of
digikam 4.14 as digikam 5 beta 2 will share some common files with digikam
4 when they are installed on the same computer.

If you use Ubuntu 15.10 you can test digikam 5 by installing my "extra" PPA
with the following command:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:philip5/extra
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install digikam5 showfoto5

If you haven't used my PPA before that will also give you an update of
Digikam 4 to 4.14.

In your system start menu you will find both Digikam (version 4) and
Digikam 5 beta 2 that you can choose what to start (I'm not sure if it
matters if you run them both at the exact same time with the same sqlite3
database but they can share the same database otherwise.). Remember that
Digikam 5 is still beta software and not ready for production use. If you
want to start digikam 5 from the command line you start it with the command
"digikam5". The "digikam" command will start version 4 of Digikam.

If you experience any conflicts or problems with the packages then just
report it back to me and I'll try to fix it as soon as possible. Right now
it should just work. Bugs in Digikam 5 should be reported back to the
Digikam team so they can enhance Digikam 5 for the final release.

Happy digikaming!
