Look if you have saved a custom menu entry for Digikam. Check in
~/.local/share/applications/ if you have a file called kde4-digikam.desktop
or maybe digikam.desktop. In that case it's a user saved menu entry that
overrides the updated system wide menu. If you have it and remove it you
might need to log out and in again to repopulate the menu with the system
wide version of the menu file.

If you do this with the KDE Menu Editor you should have
"LD_PRELOAD=/lib/libusb-0.1.so.4 digikam -caption "%c" %i" in the field
"Command:" for the Digikam menu entry. The "LD_PRELOAD=/lib/libusb-0.1.so.4"
is a workaround against crashes in beta4 when you try to import images from
a camera that uses libgphoto2, usually PTP cameras. The old workaround was
"LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libusb.so" but shouldn't be used by non developers.

Hope this make any sense.
