[digiKam-users] Questions from a DigiKam Newb (on Linux)

Dear all

I'm liking DigiKam 7.3.0 but there are some issues that can't seem to
get around. Feel free to chime in if anyof you Linux brains can help
me. (Note: I'm a Linux Newb too!)

1. Is there any way that by clicking on an album in the tree, you can
view all photos in that album, EVEN those in the album's sub-folders?
As far as I can fathom, you can only see photos in sub-folders by
clicking on the actual sub-folder.

2. I'm running the app via an AppImage. The version that comes bundled
with my distro (Zorin) is limited in that it only permits me to add
photos to the collection if they are in my user folder /home/username.
This is ridiculous. I don't have the knowledge or time to work out how
to create a build myself. Does anybody have a recent build I can
install? Digikam only seem to make the code available, not builds, for
Linux. Which is rubbish.

3. As I'm running an AppImage it seems there is no way I can edit the
themes or use new ones. Is there a workaround? The installed themes are
not to my liking. Sorry.

Thanks, all.
