To set the default action for these, you:
Open Nautilus (File Browser) and go to Edit --> Preferences --> Media tab. Here you will find all sorts of options for default actions when dealing with removable media, including Digital Cameras (Digikam) and Blank DVDs (K3b) etc. You should be able to find what you want in there somewhere.
Hope this helps,
I am having the same issue here, if I follow the above instructions there are no applications available to select under Photos - If I install F spot it appears but Digikam is not available.
EDIT - I got this to work by following some steps from here -->http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=779363&page=2
Try this - copied from above but with a bit of a modification:
A nice and easy way for replacing F-Spot with Digikam or other software under Gnome as default photo import program:
- Open a command line with Alt+F2 and run "gconf-editor"
- Navigate to "desktop / gnome / volume_manager"
- Change the line "autophoto_command" to read "digikam --download-from %m"
the autophoto_command string may be blank if you have nothing configured currently; double click on the command and paste the digikam --download-from %m as the new string.
Works for me in Mint 7
