So, I’m playing around a bit with Elementary OS and decided to load Digikam. Firstly, that was WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY more convoluted than it needed to be.
Just doing a sudo apt-get install Digikam installed v5.6. Whisky Tango Foxtrot? Then I tried the appimage version and that actually works okay, but is sub-optimal in interfacing with E-OS as it doesn’t appear anywhere in the menus.
Finally I did a flatpak install and that got everything installed in the menus, and it can be included on the dock and such, so all is well…
But, it doesn’t preview xcf files. The appimage version does.
How do I resolve this?
And why was this so difficult?
