DigiKam will not start OpenSuse 13.1

Just get the bouncing Digikam icon and the Taskbar showing “Digikam” with the “spinning wheel” for about 30 seconds and then >>>>>> Nothing.

Can anyone help?

OpenSuse 13.1
Digikam 3.5.0-4.1


run it from a terminal window and see what message you get


Launch it from a terminal, this often reveals some error messages the GUI is hiding from you.


Does ~/.xsession-errors have anything related to digikam?
