Hi Daniel,

Are you sure the database is not there? You can look for it in the directory 
where you store your images, see in the digikam configuration. Use a file 
manager or the find(1) or locate(1) shell commands if you are familliar with 
the shell, the database name contains "digikam" and ends in ".db".
