Hi Gilles,
Many thanks again.  After libfpx and ImageMagic from source I have been able to open the .fpx files and Magick commands work as expected.  What I have no been able to do is open the files in digiKam.  I have put a sample directory in the required album subfolder but I cannot open the subdirectory or see the pictures.
Have I missed a switch or setting somewhere to enable the IM support?

Although only 20 years old I have been unable to find any software which will open these.  The format is obsolete and the only application I have had any success with in the past has been Irfanview (a windoze program) but even this no longer works.  Sadly I no longer have the camera.
