[Kubuntu]: Digikam Failed To Work With KDE 4.2.9

I have recently upgraded my KDE version to 4.2.9. This however caused a problem with Digikam, it failed to load the thumbnails of selected albums.

I found a quick fix for this by adding new repository to your aptitude source list. Those repository are:

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/digikam-experimental/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/digikam-experimental/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main

The source file can be found at /etc/apt/sources.list. Once you have edited and saved the file, run the following command:

sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com 0xbf860d3661fbbba575be617f0bf0f083e353b3e9

The final thing to do is to run the following command:

sudo aptitude upadate and sudo aptitude safe-upgrade.

Once all done, try to run Digikam once again and see if those thumbnails being loaded.

This works for me and I hope it’ll work for you too 😎

NOTE: I found out that Digikam failed to load the thumbnails, again after I restarted my machine. What I did to overcome this is to run Digikam via Konsole with the following command:

sudo digikam

And voila! It works properly now 😎
