Thanks Derek,

It is rather confusing.  The file names in file explorer don't match the

file explorer it was showing as 'digiKam' but in a terminal it was 

I edited Name[en_GB]=digiKam (seems you can have different names in 
different languages) and the name is changed in hte menu and also in 
file explorer
