I have compiled and made the Digikam source code from GIT. Everything went right. At last, I typed 'sudo make install' and it went successful. But after this, I don't know where the digikam is installed. It is not shown in Application Launcher as other applications/softwares are shown.

look at the Makefile, the install paths are defined there.

I am unable to figure out the install path. There are lots of paths for different libraries. – Harsh Choudhary Mar 26 '13 at 10:32
maybe try harder. i can and will not guess the path for you and i am certain it is somewhere in that Makefile – Gung Foo Mar 26 '13 at 10:34

Try to use the one of the following commands from a terminal

which digikam or whereis digikam

the first one should show you the full path of the program; the second also lists all the directories where are stored program configuration files, man pages, and so on.

You might want to look here and here for more info.
