[Digikam-users] Question to users of my Digikam 5 PPA for Ubuntu

Also. On my PPA Digikam 4.14 and Digkam 5.0 is different set of packages
and can be installed and used on the same system (not recommended to have
them running at the exact same time in the same database as it might end up
in some odd things).

Digikam 4.14 packages are named: digikam, kipi-plugins and showfoto
Digikam 5.0 packages are named: digikam5, kipi-plugins5 and showfoto5

The Digikam 5.0 packages share and depend on some common files that are
found in digikam 4.14 packages to have them working on the same system.
That will be sorted out when you install.
