DigiKam Question


I'm new to this forum, and very new to Mandrakelinux. I've used linux before (RH & FC) and got pretty burned out on them.

Getting to the point, I'm more of a photographer than I am a linux geek (absolutely no offense intended), and I'm having trouble making DigiKam 0.6.2 stable recognize camera RAW files. When I point the software to the location of a file, the thumbnail browser remains blank. It works fine (as near as I can tell) with JPGS, but I'm really striving for RAW (NEF, in this case) compatibility.

I'm a professional photographer who wants something other than Windows to play on.

Do you know any way to make this work?

Incidentally, I have dcraw installed, as well as the dcraw-plugin for Gimp. I've also installed the plugins addon for DigiKam. The option for RAW conversion shows up in the Tools menu, but is perpetually greyed-out.

Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated!

Ok, so I reinstalled DCraw, reinstalled libexif and then digiKam 0.6.2 and it all works now.
