Regrettably, trunk builds of Exiv2 no longer work with the distributed versions of Gwenview, Darktable, DigiKam and other applications. I'm not too sure why this is the case. Perhaps there are API changes that have brought this about. v0.26 will ship and the applications will be built for libexiv2.15.0

Have you built Gwenview and Exiv2 from source, or are you using the distributed version of Gwenview?

Pascal de Brujin from DarkTable cherrypicks some v0.26 changes and maintains a modified version of which I believe is stable.

libkexiv2 and gwenview was built from source. But it looks like some dependance problem, I've rebuilt all of them and now it works fine. Thanks and sorry for false-bug.
