Package: digikam
Version: 2:1.0.0-1

Looking at the PS outpout of digikam, I see (with horror) that the data
is emitted in the DeviceRGB colour space, rather than being in one of
the absolute colour spaces (ABC-based or CIE-based) so that the printer
can perform any necessary calibration.

While working in the DeviceRGB colour space is okay for comics, business
graphics and similar applications, it is not acceptable for an appli-

space (typically sRGB, as specified by EXIF).

I haven't checked the PDF output, but I suspect it has a similar bug.

newer version of digikam which is supported by Debian.  I know for a fact that 
the colour space support has been greatly enhanced in subsequent versions of
