Luka, One change that I will reverse from your packaging is the removal of dolphin from Recommends: Without dolphin, digikam produces the attached error message when one envokes the "Album:Open in File Manager", which is why it was included as a Recommends: Please note that a Recommends: is not absolute: Recommends This declares a strong, but not absolute, dependency. The Recommends field should list packages that would be found together with this one in all but unusual installations. If non-kde users do not want to install dolphin, then with a Recommends: they don't have too. However this has been an issue in the past and led to real usability problems: http://bugs.debian.org:80/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=440250 This has also been discussed on the kde bug tracking: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=185638#c5 If you are going to undo our previous packaging work, please discuss here first. Thanks, Mark
