I know you'd love me to use appimage, but for some reasons (maybe 
strange to you :-) )  I like to stay with the opensuse rpm's.

But as the problem is known it's just a matter of time until it gets 
through to the opensuse rpm's and meanwhile I will live with it...

Thanks for the fast answering, and while here I use the occasion to 
again say that digikam is fantastic software, better than anything 
similar on win, mac or linux. Thanks for your efforts!
