Nikon CoolPiks 550 Not detected solved sort of

Postby hoe on Sun Jan 11, 2009 8:43 pm

My daughter bought a new camera and it isn't detected on Mint. Any ideas? Her Sony detected but it died and she just bought the Nikon. She doesn't live handy. I am having her download Mepis so she can bootup a liveCD and try to get the camera mounted on it so she can get her pictures. Not positive that Mepis will do the job but it is worth a try ... sure would like a solution with Mint.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I don't really have a solution but with the camera attached to the USB port run lsusb and see if you find the camera
If you do, or don't know, you can post the result here and also search for the id you find to get some solutions
There are also good applications for this, f-spot is one
Seems that these apps can see the camera when "Linux proper" can't

She is going to buy one of those little USB card readers and see if that will work ... what do you think?

I can't tell but I think there's a good chance it works but no guarantees....
