about library path...

Domenico Salvagnin
Hello!

I have a couple of wishes that IMHO could make digikam even more usable than
now.

I have two folders in which I store images on my computer: one
is /media/Images, which is managed by the root user and on which I have only
read access. The other is in my home folder, and of course I can do what I
want there.

Now, digikam is quite annoying in this scenario for a couple of reasons:

- the choice of the library path is very "static", while I would like to
switch very fast from one directory to another. Maybe a document logic could
help here...

- I cannot switch to a library path where I don't have write access (at least
with digikam 0.7.4). I know there are some good reasons beyond this, but I
think that this is very limiting!!! There are a lot of nice digikam features,
like browsing, searching, slideshow, set as wallpaper, etc... that are
perfectly compatible with a read only library path!

I don't know whether these features would be to difficult to implement or if
they're been dealt with in the beta version of digikam, anyway this is my
wish list.

Thanks

Domenico

Hi if you search bugs.kde.org like:

        http://bugs.kde.org/simple_search.cgi?id=digikam+library+path

you'll find similar requests.  I suggest to add _why_ you like/need this
feature to http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=107871.

  To me vi is Zen.  To use vi is to practice zen. Every command is
  a koan. Profound to the user, unintelligible to the uninitiated.
  You discover truth everytime you use it.
