This, I believe, means I can do something like:
digikam --database-directory /path/to/new/database
and it will act upon the collections defined in that database.
Settings, UI elements, and everything except for the databases and their managed photo collections will be shared.
Is this correct?
If so I can edit my system menus to create two launch points for digikam and run them independently.
Please advise if there might be a problem with this idea.
Not to worry - I have my full photo collection backed up on another computer.
