Cannon Digital Camera

Postby Arron on Tue Aug 12, 2008 8:16 pm

Hi

I have a Cannon A640 digital camera. I recently upgraded to Mint 5 from Mint XFCE 4, and Ubuntu 7.10 for another pc. My digital camera worked fine before, but now it does not seem to want to connect to get the pictures when i plug in the usb cable, this is my syslog:

Code: Select all
Aug 12 20:14:15 pump-chump kernel: [ 1028.424525] usb 3-3: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 6
Aug 12 20:14:15 pump-chump kernel: [ 1028.578836] usb 3-3: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice

I do not know the command to add to the Removable Drives and Media settings to make it copy them over. I installed F-Spot, and not to impressd with that either, although i can download them. in that program only.

So on with my questions:

What is the default program for Ubuntu to download the pictures from the camera?

How can i get this to run by default when plugged in?

How do i make this mount like a usb file device like ubuntu does?

Thanks

Arron

* no this is not a Ubuntu vs Mint thread, I just like the way Ubuntu handled the camera pics, and more importantly my wife as well.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Ok, I have found Ubuntu's photo program and import, gthumb. Got it installed and running. I have it importing on connection now, by using

Code: Select all
gthumb --import-photos


in the Removable Drives and devices dialog.

Seems to work, but i get an error:

"The folder contents could not be displayed"

when it first opens, I hit ok, then it proceeds on. Anyone know what this error is? How do i get it to default to my ~/Pictures folder? I suspect this might be the error, because it defaults to Home on where to save it to. As well to get it to mount the drive as well would be very nice.
