If linux mint 17.3 is based on ubuntu 15.10 or 16.04 then the PPA should
work for you. If Linux Mint 17.3 is a LTS release then PPAs and their
packages might be held back on your system as they would be considered an
unstable source repository. In that case you have to override the PID
priority code of the PPA in your apt source settings for my PPA (I think
you will have a pid priotity of 500 for the PPA that you need to change or
allow localy on your system). Ubuntu doesn't use PID priority for
repository sources so ask on a Linux Mint or maybe Debian forum or channel
how to do that if you can't google it.

Digikam 5 final for Ubuntu 16.10 is build on my PPA as I write this. I will
upload Digikam 5 final for Ubuntu 15.10 tomorrow. For the moment I have
Digikam 5 beta 7 packages for Ubuntu 15.10 on the PPA.
