The problems you had with digikam are all solved by using HAL.
Actually, I've been really impressed with HAL, I have a KVM switch which
causes my mouse to disappear (apparently windows has a bug which causes it
to stuff up if the mouse is removed, and the KVM switch works around this
in such a way as to confuse linux and require it to create a new mouse on
switch). At least, that's what I think happens, but I digress... With
HAL, the process is totally transparent -- I didn't even realise it was
happening until I booted an older debian install without HAL enabled and
it didn't work.
The day that HAL is installed and running by default on all major distros
will be a good day.
