"By default, digiKam uses two SQLite databases for storing essential data: digikam4.db and thumbnails-digikam.db. And to make the application run fast and smoothly, it's a good idea to check and optimize the databases every now and then. To do this on Ubuntu or its derivatives, you need to install the sqlite3 package using the sudo apt-get install sqlite3 command. Once you've done that, back up the digikam4.db and thumbnails-digikam.db databases. Open then the terminal and switch to the directory where the databases are stored."
