    The problem is that krita and digikam try to install the same file. I didn't
    noticed it as the file has been added to digikam in the last release. I will
    remove it from krita.

    Thank you for the report

    So either this file is not needed by krita at all or krita then depends on
    digikam (for just this file)?
    Why is there no freedesktop-mime package (or something like that), where all
    such files are in?

    a pipe is a way of IPC (interprocess communication) in Unix.

    In this case two programs were communicating through a pipe, then one of them
    (dpkg) died because of the already present file, so the other process found a
    "broken pipe".

    Are you a plumber? :P

    Actually I'm with Scott on this. I understand your explanation of the
    error, but I've always thought it should be possible for dpkg (apt-*)
    to output a more helpful message ... more helpful for the uninitiated,
    that is.

    When this error first happened for me I was baffled by the meaning
    until I googled for the various error texts and found out what a
    common situation this is while packaging is in a state of flux.

    Would it not be possible for dpkg (or apt-get, etc.) to do something
    like this :

    Unpacking replacement krita ...
    dpkg: error processing
    /var/cache/apt/archives/krita_1%3a1.4.90.1-1_i386.deb (--unpack):
    trying to overwrite `/usr/share/mimelnk/image/x-raw.desktop', which
    is also in package digikam
    dpkg-deb: subprocess paste killed by signal ( *Broken pipe* )
    Errors were encountered while processing:
    /var/cache/apt/archives/krita_1%3a1.4.90.1-1_i386.deb
    E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
    ================================================== ===========
    Sorry - the contents of package 'krita' are incompatible with
    the files already on your system. Please report this error
    to the creator of the package.
    ================================================== ===========

    In fact, couldn't the message even dig the email address of the
    relevant packager out of the deb and display that too ?

    I realise this would be redundant for long-time users, but still, in
    the interests of bringing Debian to the masses ...

    Just my 2p ... anyone else ?
    Worth making a feature request (bug against dpkg) ?
