Notes: Not specific to digikam, see also Help:Style#Official packages (Discuss in Talk:Digikam#)

A Phonon backend is installed as a dependency of Digikam, but matching multimedia codecs may be missing. When using the phonon-qt4-gstreamer backend, install one or more of its plugins with pacman -S gstreamer0.10-{good,bad,ugly,ffmpeg} .

Unreadable tool tips

Notes: This is a general issue with Qt applications (Discuss in Talk:Digikam#)

If tooltips within the user interface are either blank (empty rectangles), or unreadable due to a poor foreground and background combination, choose a different widget style:

  1. Navigate to Settings > Configure digiKam > Miscellaneous
  2. Now in Widget Style, choose "Cleanlooks"

This will have a simple, readable white text on black background in the tool tip.
