It seems like that.
When I purged digiKam package I deleted files digikam4.db and
thumbnails-digikam.db from the database directory afterwards; it is
strange enough that they were there after purging. Then I installed the
package again and before launching digiKam file digikam4.db had appeared
in the database directory! After launching digiKam the initial setup
assistant did not appeared but a simple setup dialogue window was
appeared instead.
