you might be out of luck with bugs related to dependencies

Thanks for chiming in. I will check out your suggestions.

Have you tried installing via blender method?

Thanks for the suggestion, but no. I kind of expected apt to do the job.

I cloned blender.git and I believe I managed to build blender despite some compiler warnings flying by. It starts ok and it appears to work. It may be a bit on the bleeding edge side of things, though. It says "4.2 Alpha" and I may decide to check out a slightly older version.

Thank you for responding.

apt dist-upgrade says 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded

apt list --installed... prints the same list, essentially. My libavformat-dev  and libswscale-dev are both  [installed] rather than [installed,automatic].
Library version codes (7:5.1.4-0+deb12u1) are all the same as yours.

What is the preferred way to install blender 3.4.1+dfsg-2+b1 on daedalus?

Straight forward apt installation appears to run normally, but blender will not start (using xfce) due to missing libraries.

Blender correctly claims not found, it is not installed. Package description … +dfsg-2+b1 does not list among dependencies. However; is listed and is also installed.

A quick cheat: symlink -> and now blender correctly claims is missing. But is installed and that is also the lib listed among the dependencies.

Next white lie:  symlink -> and blender correctly claims is missing. Again, that lib is not listed among dependencies, neither is a newer variant listed. Nor is there any libIlmImf* variant installed.

I have, for good measure, tried variants of remove and reinstall.

What is the best way forward? Clone the blender git repository and build from scratch?

Thanks to all who responded. I did not fully test installing the additional libraries, but I am sure that would have worked. I took the cheap way out using an AppImage.

Wow! I am sorry if I came across as being offended. I automatically took "system" to mean my Daedalus installation and hoped you had spotted something that escaped me.

Always a possibility.

If I understand you correctly, you say and show that your Daedalus installation has no Thus, our installations agree on that. I don't get how and why that makes my end skewed.

I wrongly expected the digikam package to trigger installations required to meet dependencies or notify me of those that were not available.

As apt takes care of the pesky dependencies, when you have an issue it won't be reported because it wasn't declared to apt in the first place, which in itself is the issue.

As DigiKam is a KDE thing, I wonder if I have underestimated the KDE installation as a prerequisite, it may provide all the libs not explicitly stated as dependencies in the digikam package.

It seems that library is provided by the libtiff5 package.

Yes. As I wrote in my opening post: Got that one in place, ... but digikam wants more and I thought I'd better ask before continuing down the path of "lib-by-lib until quiet". I will think about it.

Thanks for responding!

No, no dependency issues reported during install.

Upgraded to Daedalus, all seems well. Next I installed DigiKam. Appears in menu (xfce) but does not start. When starting digikam from terminal window it says there is no Got that one in place, but now it  misses I am probably doing something wrong. What are the correct steps after apt-get install digikam?
