Thanks, that issue had some good information. The following questions
remain/came up again:
- Can a command line option to define a custom configuration location
- As there really are several configfiles: Shouldn't these be places
in ~/.config/digikam instead of directly into ~/.config?
- Can information like configuration location be added to a manpage or
help message? I might be able to help with that if you can point out the
location where these are defined in the source code.
Not important at all, just curious:
- The digikam4 and digikam5 sql databases are identical. Still, what
is the reason for which digikam names a new database "digikam4.db" and
For reference: The issue linked below states that there are the
follwoing configuration files:
- ~/Local Settings/digikamrc
- ~/Local Settings/digikam_tagsmanagerrc
- ~/Local Settings/kipipluginsrc
- ~/Local Settings/kipirc
- ~/Local Settings/showfotorc
- ~/Local Settings/digikam/*
