Thanks for the explanation.
I guess I will compile digikam from sources then. I do use open with menu a lot but I can't downgrade to ver 4.5.0 either

We talk already about this problem in the pass.
You must know that native file dialog pass through qt plugins interface.
In the AppImage scripts, i don't resolve the GTK dependency for the native file dialog Qt plugin, to be able to use the gnome like file dialog.
Same problem about KDE stuff. The framework from KDE providing the KDE file dialog is not installed.
Why ? : to reduce the puzzle, because it's not a simple dependency. If you want to support all the native file dialog cases, you will create a linux distribution. This is not the goal, this is not my goal. I want to reduce this infernal complexity of Linux world...
VoilĂ  for the origin of the problem.

Debian 9 with KDE
digikam 5.8.0 appimage (latest stable)
no digikam from the official repos installed in the system ('cause it is ver. 4.5.0)

I checked the box "use file dialogs from the system", restarted the digikam but "open with" menu is still empty. I can only type in a command there but none of the items from .local/share/applications being shown.

Did I misunderstood what the setting does?

Best regards,
