[Pkg-kde-extras] Bug#342282: camera access works only when root

Package: digikam
Version: 0.8.0-1-1
Severity: normal

I can access my camera (a Canon A75 trough USB) only when I'm running 
digikam as root.

This (setting too strict permissions to USB devices?) is probably really 
an udev or gphoto2 issue, but I encountered it first when using digikam. 
Maybe digikam could have a setup tool like in k3b which sets the correct 
permissions, or digikam deb package could set them in installation?
