Description Detlef 2014-11-28 13:19:13 UTC
Since April 2014 I use digikam installed via Macport. On your homepage "www.digikam.org" you announce Version 4.3.0 with a picture of Mac OSX but in the Macports list there is only the version 4.0.0. How is it possible to install the newer version. The version 4.0.0 is only a Beta-version and not good in image-editoring. Please tell me what I can do to get a newer version.

Sincerely Detlef Dürr

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. sudo port list digik*

Actual Results:  
digikam                        @4.0.0          kde/digikam

Expected Results:  
digikam                        @4.3.0          kde/digikam or
digikam                        @4.4.0          kde/digikam or
digikam                        @4.5.0          kde/digikam

Current implementation of digiKam can be compiled under macport following instructions here (see tutorial) :


If you want to Macports based package, there is a file in MAcports bugzilla about this topic :


MAcports team is late to update port file and also a pre-compiled package ! There is a farm in Macports with pre-compiled file, and digiKam is not included due to license problem with eigen3 shared lib (if i rememeber). This is completly a wrong argument as Eigen3 is an optional dependency !

So to resume, ask support to Macports team.
