Question to users of my PPA with Digikam for Ubuntu.

Philip Johnsson
Hi everyone

I have question for users of my PPA with Digikam packages for Ubuntu (I have about 2000 users that download my Digikam packages for the moment). Would you like the PPA to stay as pure with the official Ubuntu packages for each Ubuntu release as possible and mostly update Digikam packages. For stability, security or any other reason or do you want as updated dependency packages as possible?

How I have been doing it is mostly update dependency packages if Digikam demands them to be updated to build but not for functionality. When I update packages I usually update with upstream stable releases but don't have time to follow each package with bug, security or other patches between releases if it's not obvious or pointed out to me.

Most current example is if you guys want updated versions to latest upstram of exiv2, libraw and/or lensfuns for trusty, utopic and vivid? I use the updated versions on my own system that is still Kubuntu 14.10.

Regards,

Philip

I have never had a problem until now, so for me: as updated dependency
packages as possible.

Great work, Philip!

Philip, you know my answer already ;-)

exiv2 0.25 has a lot of bug fixes and enhancements. I'd love to see it
packaged and avaiiable to all.

Hi Philip,

First thank you very much for providing the PPA, it is much appreciated.

My preference would be to include the latest versions of all components, however I am happy to get the latest version of DK even if it does not have the very latest components.

Keep up the good work!

Thanks
Mick

1. Thanks, I really appreciate your time and hard work spent on it.
2. Personally, I have had an 'interruption' in my current use DK
because libraw in Ubuntu is so old and doesn't support newer cameras
especially the X-Trans from Fuji.

I would prefer: "updated dependency packages as possible"

Thank you

In reply to this post by Syv Ritch
Note :Exiv2 update to 0.25 is VERY important due to a huge list of bugfixes, especially about video files support.

Exiv2 0.24 is not a TLS version and the problem is the delay between version. 0.24 to 0.25 => 1,5 y

I hope to see more Exiv2 releases in the future. 2/3 month with bugfixes will be the best. Don't forget that Exiv2 is used everywhere in digiKam. It's a critical dependency.

Re: Question to users of my PPA with Digikam for Ubuntu.

Philip Johnsson
I just uploaded updated versions of exiv2, lensfun and libraw to at the moment latest tarball releases and rebuild of digikam for them for (*)ubuntu 14.10 (utopic) to my PPA. trusty and vivid get the same kind of updates later tonight. Shouldn't be any problem but feel free to report back to me if there would be any...

Re: Question to users of my PPA with Digikam for Ubuntu.

Antonio Trincone
I would take advantage of this topic for a question out of it, related to the issue I am having (and it seems to be general) using your PPA in Mint 17.1 KDE version. It seems that for a priority question (sorry for my non technical words) your PPA is not used instead of repository version which is now 4.0.0. Could it be safe the use of some methods I found online to force the system to use your PPA. Have you any other simpler suggestion? Many thanks in advance for possible asnwer and sorry for the intrusion.

Re: Question to users of my PPA with Digikam for Ubuntu.

Philip Johnsson
Antonio,

Yes you can but that is a Linux Mint problem and not a Ubuntu problem. Linux Mint use Pin-Priority to lock out what it considers unstable or experimental packages sources. This is used in Debian too to hold back packages in stable from installing packages from Debian unstable or experimental. Ubuntu work a bit different with its release cycles. Why Linux Mint do as it does I don't know as it's based on Ubuntu otherwise and I'm not that used to changing Pin-Priority and Launchpad sources are listed as 500.

I haven't tried it as I don't have to but try to install digikam with apt-get and the -t unstable parameter; "sudo apt-get -t unstable install digikam". That might work on Linux Mint and works on Debian if you want install some special package from Debian unstable on Debian stable and dependecies. If that doesn't work I think you have to ask in the Linux Mint community how they handled package sources with higher Pin-Priority.

Hope that helps.

Philip

I run the PPA on Mint 17 Cinnamon and it works fine, I did not have to change any priority.  I am no expert but if there is anything I can test to help you please let me know.

Re: Question to users of my PPA with Digikam for Ubuntu.

Philip Johnsson
Mick, Is Mint 17 Cinnamon the LTS release? I think LTS might have that priority lock to keep it to use sources marked as stable. Again, I'm not a specialist on Linux Mint.

Re: Question to users of my PPA with Digikam for Ubuntu.

Mick Sulley
Yes it is the LTS release, based on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.  It is available with several front ends, Cinnamon (fork of Gnome), KDE and Xfce.

Mick, Is Mint 17 Cinnamon the LTS release? I think LTS might have that priority lock to keep it to use sources marked as stable. Again, I'm not a specialist on Linux Mint.

I run the PPA on Mint 17 Cinnamon and it works fine, I did not have to change any priority.  I am no expert but if there is anything I can test to help you please let me know.

Antonio,

Yes you can but that is a Linux Mint problem and not a Ubuntu problem. Linux Mint use Pin-Priority to lock out what it considers unstable or experimental packages sources. This is used in Debian too to hold back packages in stable from installing packages from Debian unstable or experimental. Ubuntu work a bit different with its release cycles. Why Linux Mint do as it does I don't know as it's based on Ubuntu otherwise and I'm not that used to changing Pin-Priority and Launchpad sources are listed as 500.

I haven't tried it as I don't have to but try to install digikam with apt-get and the -t unstable parameter; "sudo apt-get -t unstable install digikam". That might work on Linux Mint and works on Debian if you want install some special package from Debian unstable on Debian stable and dependecies. If that doesn't work I think you have to ask in the Linux Mint community how they handled package sources with higher Pin-Priority.

Hope that helps.

Philip

I would take advantage of this topic for a question out of it, related to the issue I am having (and it seems to be general) using your PPA in Mint 17.1 KDE version. It seems that for a priority question (sorry for my non technical words) your PPA is not used instead of repository version which is now 4.0.0. Could it be safe the use of some methods I found online to force the system to use your PPA. Have you any other simpler suggestion? Many thanks in advance for possible asnwer and sorry for the intrusion.

Exiv2 0.24 is not a TLS version and the problem is the delay between version. 0.24 to 0.25 => 1,5 y

I hope to see more Exiv2 releases in the future. 2/3 month with bugfixes will be the best. Don't forget that Exiv2 is used everywhere in digiKam. It's a critical dependency.

1. Thanks, I really appreciate your time and hard work spent on it.
2. Personally, I have had an 'interruption' in my current use DK
because libraw in Ubuntu is so old and doesn't support newer cameras
especially the X-Trans from Fuji.

I would prefer: "updated dependency packages as possible"

Thank you

Re: Question to users of my PPA with Digikam for Ubuntu.

In reply to this post by Philip Johnsson
Dear Philip,

First of all thank for the amazing work you have done on the PPA.

I have some difficulties because, as others, I use a Fuji XT1 with  
XTRANS sensor, hence I need to keep up with updates on libraw.

I am wondering whether it would be worth to have a big package with  
all dependencies updated, but all the other standard media packages  
use the standard libraries.

Would that be possible?

Best,

Quoting Philip Johnsson <[hidden email]>:

Alan, yes they are prepared for trusty too but I haven't had time to upload them yet. Hopefully tomorrow.

Cerp, yes and no. Depending on how you mean...

Re: Question to users of my PPA with Digikam for Ubuntu.

Alan Pater
Gret, I'll keep an eye out for them.

One other comment. The package descriptions are:

exiv2 EXIF/IPTC metadata manipulation tool
libexiv2-14 EXIF/IPTC metadata manipulation library

I wonder if that could be changed to: EXIF/IPTC/XMP metadata manipulation ...

Re: Question to users of my PPA with Digikam for Ubuntu.

Philip Johnsson
Alan, I didn't change the description in this release. I just copied that from the ubuntu/debian package description. If it should be a wide spread change it should be something the debian package maintainer change as Ubuntu get it from them.

Digikam 4.11.0 with exiv2 0.25, libraw 0.16.2 and lensfun 0.3.1 for trusty is buildning on launchpad as I write this. I haven't had the opportunity to test many other packages or software on trusty that use libraw or lensfun if they have any problems with these system updates. If you run into problems then let me know and I can release rebuilds of them to support the updates if something crash. (hopefully it just works...)
