Indeed Remco!!!!

I added with Yast this repo:
Then searched for libkexiv2-11 and found an even newer version (v
15.04.3-2.1) than posted by KDE:Applications. This may have been posted
just hours or minutes ago.
So I updated the libkexiv2-11 to this version, having already installed
libexiv2-14 from graphics and YES!!!!  Digikam is alive again !!!!

your repo includes also a more recent version of libexiv2-14 but just
with the one I had was enough. So, for all opensuse users, the solution
to get Digikam 4.11 (from KDE:EXTRA) up and running is to include this
NicoK repo and update libkexiv2-11 as well to get libexiv2-14.
Kipi-plugins are also included in this repo as well as in others. Or
simply upgrade Digikam and all these packages from the Nicok repo
because even Digikam is posted in a more recent version (4.11.0-44.7).

Finally back to work.
Thanks a lot Remco.
