Digikam/Hacking Frameworks

digiKam project started Qt5/KDE Frameworks porting in November 2014.

Configuring git and setting up branches

To check the current status please visit the link:

digiKam Coding Sprint 2014

Since the frameworks implementation is not ready yet, the development is performed in frameworks branch of each repository:

remember to run this code:

$>git checkout master
$>git pull --rebase
$>git checkout -b frameworks origin/frameworks
$>git branch -a
* frameworks
  remotes/origin/HEAD -> origin/master

for following folders:

  • digikam-software-compilation
  • code
  • extra (some libs must be compiled with frameworks version before building digiKam)


CMake compilation command:

$mkdir build && cd build

if you install digiKam and you have problems with kio-slaves, for example, on Archlinux (no images in albums and errors), use -DKDE_INSTALL_USE_QT_SYS_PATHS=ON
