  • Missing Digikam Themes w/t KDE

    Digikam is a great tool to man­age and work on pho­tos — my per­sonal favorite for some years already. But it’s made for KDE and uses a lot of KDE-related libs and stuff, there­fore, installing it in Gnome, Xfce, Lxde and the like will cost about 1gb because of the depene­den­cies.
    Nev­er­the­less, worth it. But it comes with a bright default skin ren­der­ing it com­pletely unus­able for work­ing seri­ously on light and color set­tings of photos.

    To add themes, you will have to install an extra pack­age (as decribed here) like this:
    sudo apt-get install kde-workspace-data
    Yes, this will add more data to your disk, but only 10mb this time. ;)

    Happy photo-tweaking!

    Thank’s for the great tip. Sadly when choos­ing a dark theme (e.g. Obsid­ian Coast), some back­grounds are still bright but the text is bright too :-(

    True, same prob­lem here — it’s a bit annoy­ing but I’m still a big fan of Digikam, it’s a great tool.
    If I remem­ber right there should be a tool (set­tings panel) to adjust the OS theme of KDE. Chang­ing the font color there should influ­ence how Digikam looks like. That might fix it.

    Thank you. This has been a recur­rent prob­lem for me with Ubuntu, and it’s returned since upgrad­ing to DK 4.5 on Ubuntu 14.10.
