Cassandra 3.0 and camera support

Postby Gerry Atric on Wed Jun 06, 2007 11:00 pm

Howdy,
Just installed Cassandra Mint 3.00 and can't fault the system its brilliant. Only problem I have come across so far is I cant get my Kodak camera to import photo's, (didn't have any problems with Bea)cant get Cassandra to recognise that a camera has been connected actually. Thought it might be Feisty base so tried with Feisty as well but no problems there. Any ideas please. Cassandra is leaps and bounds ahead of the rest.

what photo app are you using?
I would recommend installing f-spot.

installing it should add all the dependencies to download your photos.

I wish f-spot had not been left off mint3, I would have left of gimp instead if room was needed.

:D

Installed F-Spot and connected up the camera. Recognises that the camera is connected but when I click import nothing happens. Any Ideas where I go from here please.

this sounds like and old problem that is from some library file from the backports... I have not checked it on mint 3 yet.

sounds like:

could just be a config thing.

Tells me now that it cannot 'claim' the camera. Seem to remember reading on the net somewhere about editing a file to correct this situation, wasn't for camera, think it was for scanners or printers, but cant remember where I read it.
Any ideas there please.

Thanks for your help used that filefix by Solocam and using F-Spot I now have import for my photo's.


Open /etc/udev/rules.d/45-libgphoto2.rules in your favorite text editor
Replace
BUS!="usb*", GOTO="libgphoto2_rules_end"
with
SUBSYSTEM!="usb_device", GOTO="libgphoto2_rules_end"

Better still A friend has just put me onto installing Gthumb from the Synaptic repository. No file adjustments necessary it works correctly immediately after installation.

I have used it in the past but i really like how f-spot chronologically creates folders when downloading your photos. and the interface.
