[digiKam-users] installation via appimage - how do I access my existing library and settings?

Hello, I have been having problems with the snap for 7.1.0 on an ubuntu
based distro (poor support for media, other basic system stuff). When I
logged a bug, someone kindly informed me to try the appimage instead.
So I have...
- uninstalled the snap
- downloaded and tried to install the appimage (7.1.0 stable)
Now I am stuck
I have successfully launched the app image but I get the startup
install wizard of digikam, which asks for the location of my images,
and location to put the sqllite library.
I have already spent the past week migrating into digikam and have:
a) a well organized library
b) settings in digikam
Is there a method of skipping the wizard process and have digikam point
a) existing library?
b) existing settings?
Seems like an oversight in the digikam install interface to not allow
someone to choose an existing library, and other settings? Or am I
If I go this appimage route to use the app, if I want to upgrade the
version I expect I will be faced with the same problem.
