    If you solved this question, add an answer how you did so and accept it. – Anwar Sep 10 '12 at 7:37

You can try (on the command line):

sudo apt-get clean
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

If it doesn't solve the problem, pasting the output in your question might be useful.

  • Thanks Steve for your quick reply. Meanwhile I also looked at Mikevaughn repositories where i found a similar hint as yours. It worked, I am the proud user now of Digikam 2.9.0. Have used Digikam for years but since I bought the Fuji X-S1 could no longer edit RAW images as Fuji began using a different array of pixels in their new sensor. Digikam 2.9.0 does the trick. Thanks again, greetings, Miel – miel Sep 10 '12 at 7:14
