Hello everyone and happy new year !
I used to have a 'UBUNTU' version of linux mint with gnome, now i have LMDE.
on the ubuntu sorced version plugging in a ptp camera would make it show up on the desktop and in nautilus, and then clicking that would show all the thumbnails and file directory of the camera in nautilus , life was sweet
With lmde, no such thing happens , after 8 months i have found a way to get it to work, but it is not optimal and i would like to ask for your combined help.
this is what i do >
plug in camera via usb
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 04a9:31e1 Canon, Inc.
this tells me the camera is recognised
~ $ gphoto2 --auto-detect
USB PTP Class Camera usb:001,004
this tells me the little usb numbers i need, note these change all the time, sometmies it is 003, sometimes 004,
usinig the usb numbers from above i write this little line
i take this line and put it into nautilus , i use the key combination ctrl+l , and this lets me put in the address i want, here i put in the above line , and then magic
the little icon comes up on the desktop, and it comes up in nautilus just as if it were a usb drive. Now i have access to my camera without the hassle of f-photo or gtkam etc etc. I can drag and drop, delete etc, using the nautilus.
How can i get this to happen automattically, in ubuntu this happens automatically with the icons appearing on the desktop and i just click it. This is a bit of a process to do everytime i want to access my camera. There must be a script for this, if any one can help i would really like it.
