HOWTO: Make an MPEG Picture Slideshow with digiKam
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 2, 2009
This is a short howto, but since I found no solution on the forums, or on google, I decided to post the solution here. If you only install digiKam, you will not be able to encode and render the mpeg slideshow. If you have digiKam and are frustrated, this is why it hasn't worked.
1. Install the packages:
sudo apt-get install imagemagick mjpegtools music123 ffmpeg digikam
Or, if you prefer, install the packages in Synaptic.
2. Open digiKam, select Tools -> Create MPEG Slideshow
3. From here on out, just select the file you want to save as (output file), add the pictures you want in the slideshow using the giant 'Add' button, and include an audio track if you're so inclined.
A Side Note: If you just install digikam, it will not install mjpegtools or music123 which it needs to do the encoding. Also, this installs the full imagenagick, as opposed to the compact libraries.
DigiKam mpeg slideshow?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 20, 2009
I've been trying to several days now to find an app for creating a simple image slideshow for inclusion in a dvd project. Picasa is my preference but it doesn't yet support video projects under linux.
I eventually installed DigiKam and despite numerous references to the "MPEG Slideshow" kipi plugin, this plugin does not appear to be installed by default, the source is not available on the digikam homepage, and I can't find any way to add it.
Anyone else using DigiKam have any knowledge of the mpeg slideshow encoder? Am I missing something?
DigiKam missing mpeg slideshow plugin
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 7, 2009
I am using DigiKam with Jaunty.
I have installed digikam mpg123 ffmpeg imagemagick kipi-plugins music123 mjpegtools
I do not have the menu Tools-> Create MPEG Slideshow
When looking in Settings -> Configure DigiKam -> Kipi Plugins, there are 21 plugins found. However I do not see any that mention mpeg Slide Show.
I also looked under /usr/lib/kde4/ and it doesn't seem to have kipiplugins_slideshow ( I am assuming this is the file that is required for the plugin)
Anyone have any insight to the problem?
Digikam photo slideshow as screensaver?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 3, 2010
In F-Spot there's this nice function that shows a slideshow of all your photos as a screensaver. Since I've abandoned F-Spot in favor of Digikam (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...61#post9068961) I was wondering if there is a way to do something similar in Digikam.

9.04 Fresh Install: Unable to download pictures into digikam/fspot
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 29, 2009
I've been an Ubuntu user for a long time. I upgraded from Hardy to Jaunty by doing a fresh install of Jaunty (Ubuntu, not Kubuntu) and wiping out my Hardy root partition.
After the install, I had a few problems most of which are resolved except this one. I cannot seem to download pictures from my digital camera using digikam. Nautilus shows that the camera is mounted and I can even see the pictures via Nautilus. Digikam seems to autodetect the camera, but is unable to download the pictures. Digikam simply says that it failed to connect. No error messages. Looking in /var/log/messages or /var/log/syslog gave no hint of the problem.
For what it's worth I'm having the problem with Picasa3 and F-Spot too.
This worked perfectly well with Hardy.
Thanks for any assistance,

Changing the Location of Digikam Collection
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 2, 2013
I deleted the original location[GUI]
now no matter where I put them,, the initial prompt say ok
but the faults out when actually scanning the collection
I have the files on both a sd card & a fat32 formatted HDD
on a differnt install of M3 no problem
both are clean installs
I'm sure it will work if I start over, but I had this happen last year & finally gave up,
it would be nice to find out what is going on
