firewire camera

Postby j-rock on Mon Jun 02, 2008 9:53 pm

how do I get my nikon d1h to work with mint?? I plug it in and it doesnt recognize the camera. I tried gthumb and it doesnt recognize it either. Is it even possible? I remember when I first had just hardy installed I would plug the camera in and ubuntu would recognize that something had been connected but I couldnt get at the pictures.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Unfortunately I don't find any other useful info - obviously Gutsy is a bird as well....

hey thanks..I installed that and then had to run modprobe raw1394 and change some permissions and now when I run coriander it cant find the camera. But i tried running gscanbus and it says the camera is connected to the parent node. Anyone else have any suggestions?
