    Hugin Panorama tool not working in Digikam since upgrade to Ubuntu 22.04

    I have recently made a clean install of Ubuntu 22.04 LTS. After reinstalling Digikam I find that the panorama creator tool (Hugin) is demanding additional files and refuses to run without them. I have no idea where those files are supposed to go. I need help with understanding the process to get Hugin working again. Any help would be much appreciated . . .

    Try to run the command below in your terminal:
    Code:
    apt search packagename
    example: 
    apt search panorama

    Thank you for your quick response mlk3_08.
    I tried the apt search command you suggested.
    The response was
    "Sorting. . . Done
    Full Text Search. . . Done"
    then return to the prompt. Apparently nothing found..
    I still need help.

    And what are these packages or files that digikam needs for it to run?

    The problem is that Ubuntu installs digikam as a snap package, which runs in a sandbox that can only access parts of the system configured by the package creator. A nice security measure and a pain in the butt. Digikam needs to be able to kick off external tools like hugin, gimp & darktable, but the snap package won't let it do this. A snap expert might be able to make it work somehow, but for the rest of us, we're just left cursing snap.
