(Nearly) full tickless operation in 3.10
I've tested them all, digiKam is the only software that works.
Too bad I have to pull inn half of KDE just to use it, Konqueror and Kmail (wtf?) and loads of other stuff I don't want. However, it's just miles ahead everything else...

digiKam in Ubuntu RECOMMENDS konqueror
Posted Jun 24, 2010 11:49 UTC (Thu) by emmi3 (subscriber, #62443)
Since Ubuntu by default installs recommended packages (but afaik not suggested packages) konqueror is "pulled in".
So to install digikam with the kipi-plugins (and exiv2), but without Konqueror and Dolphin one could use the following command:
aptitude -R install digikam kipi-plugins+M exiv2+M
To find out about the dependencies I find the "-D"-switch for aptitude usually very helpful. Or use
aptitude -R digikam
and look out for RECOMMENDED but not installed packages

Debian Packaging Policy [OT]
Posted Jul 5, 2010 8:30 UTC (Mon) by Felix.Braun (subscriber, #3032)
The difference as per Debian Packaging Policy is a matter of degree:
I think that this fine-grained dependency tracking allows Debian (and derivatives) to strike a good compromise between simplicity and configurability in terms of dependency management.
