Hi Remco,

The problem is that DK 4.11 (posted in KDE:EXTRA) requieres  a version
of libkexiv2 that was built against libexiv2-13 (exiv 0.24) instead of
libexiv2-14 (v0.25).
Libexiv2-14 is available at "Graphics" among other repos included the
one you proposed.

But the most recent libkexiv2 (v 15.04.3) that I could find, is
distributed by  KDE:Applications repo, but is still built agains the old

I posted the case as well at :

I will check your second repo to see if there is a libkexiv2 built
against libexiv2-14 rather than libexiv2-13. They should all have been
posted together in KDE:EXTRA where Digikam 4.11 is being distributed.

thanks a lot.
