Importing Pics from Camera

Postby DFergATL » Tue Jul 24, 2007 2:52 am

I am having problems importing pics from my Kodak Easy Share cx6330 camera. I connect it and Mint prompts me that a camera has been connected and would I like to import the pics or ignore. I choose import and then nothing happens. Just for the record, I do know that the camera works. Until about two days ago this PC was using Ubuntu and I connected the same camera and imported some pics without problems....... HELP!!

I have the same experience when I connect my camera cell phone.
You should fine the camera in nautilus as a disc and be able to manually transfer the photos. I've seen a program called fspot be recommended.
You could also try gThumb which is in the repositories. Not included in Mint by default but in Ubuntu so it may have been gThumb that did it for you in Ubuntu

Ok, downladed gthumb and it came up when I connected my camera. It also gave me the following error:

An error occurred in the io-library ('Could not claim the USB device'): Could not claim interface 0 (Operation not permitted). Make sure no other program or kernel module (such as sdc2xx, stv680, spca50x) is using the device and you have read/write access to the device.


After I got this I rebooted and tried again, got the same error...getting close....

I had same problem and this is what I came up with.

sudo gedit /etc/udev/rules.d/45-libgphoto2.rules

# udev rules file for libgphoto2 devices (udev < 0.98
#
BUS!="usb*", GOTO="libgphoto2_rules_end"
ACTION!="add", GOTO="libgphoto2_rules_end"

Change the above 3rd line entry to the ammended 3rd line entry below

# udev rules file for libgphoto2 devices (udev < 0.98
#
SUBSYSTEM!="usb_device", GOTO="libgphoto2_rules_end"
ACTION!="add", GOTO="libgphoto2_rules_end"

Save and then issue the following command in the terminal and all should be OK.

sudo /etc/init.d/udev restart

This is well documented here

It's not capital S, it's sudo. Sorry that was my fault. :oops:

Thanks a lot! That fixed mine as well!


I certainly hope that gthumb is included in the next Mint release, along with this fix!

This is the Terminal command to open the text editor with the file 45-libgphoto2.rules loaded up. /etc/udev/rules.d is the path to the file. gedit is the text editor and sudo is the command to become superuser.

Now when the editor opens, just change line 3 to what I have already indicated.

# udev rules file for libgphoto2 devices (udev < 0.98
#
BUS!="usb*", GOTO="libgphoto2_rules_end"
ACTION!="add", GOTO="libgphoto2_rules_end"

Change the above 3rd line entry to the ammended 3rd line entry below

# udev rules file for libgphoto2 devices (udev < 0.98
#
SUBSYSTEM!="usb_device", GOTO="libgphoto2_rules_end"
ACTION!="add", GOTO="libgphoto2_rules_end"

Save and then issue the following command in the terminal and all should be OK.

sudo, we know what that means. /etc/init.d/, is the path to udev and restart loads up the driver database.

first have you installed a photo tool?
if not open a terminal and enter/copy this command.

sudo apt-get install f-spot

enter your password when asked.
enter y to agree to the install.

OK.
open a terminal window.
copy and past this command into it

sudo gedit /etc/udev/rules.d/45-libgphoto2.rules

enter your password when asked.

this will open a text editor window called gedit and the file 45-libgphoto2.rules open.

delete the line
BUS!="usb*", GOTO="libgphoto2_rules_end"

in it's place enter, you can copy and paste it if you want.
SUBSYSTEM!="usb_device", GOTO="libgphoto2_rules_end"

click on the save button and exit.
the text editor window is now gone.

in the terminal window copy and past this command:

sudo /etc/init.d/udev restart

enter your password if asked.

all done

now plug in your camera to the USB port.

when you camera is detected click on import photos.
f-spot should open and start importing photos.
dont worry if it doesn't, just go to the menu-->drawing/photo-->f-spot.
click on import in the menu and select your camera.
and start importing photos.

:D

You are in xfce?
Possibly gedit is not installed there
Change gedit to whatever editor is installed (it's kate in KDE but I don't know for the xfce edition)

Re: Getting close but still not there.... Thank you for help

Postby 900i » Sun Sep 02, 2007 5:57 am

I searched with Accessories/Appfinder/ Xfce4 for gedit and found an icon for Text Manager....I rightclicked and chose run program....but I can't see anything running anywhere.


Now he tells us he's using XFCE. Anyone know what the XFCE text editor is called?

Normally I would have started xfce and checked, but that computer is screwed up in the partition table. I had one primary partition and one extended with lots of distros installed. When I installed in a second primary the numbering of the partitions (hdax) changed for all but hte first partition :(
I'll have to change grub/menu.lst and all fstab - oh well...)
//Edit/
And this computer can't handle live CDs well nvidia 6600 GTX does not like the nv driver

Ok, where it says "gedit" in the previous instructions, you need to change that to "mcedit". Just don't put the quotes in. I had to install a Live XFCE distro in Virtualbox to find the answer to that. :D

Re: E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'dpkg --c

Postby 900i » Sun Sep 02, 2007 10:53 am

Enter "sudo dpkg --configure -a" in a terminal, be careful where you put the spaces.

and I've managed to get Mint XFCE up and running after several hours changing menu.lst and fstab for 8 distros :(
The counterpart for gedit is mousepad

hello :)
i have the same problem as our thread starter, and I am a new Mint user :) I had ubuntu dapper before, and all things with my camera were - ok.

i plug-in usb with canon camera, it recognizes me, but when i choose "import.." nothing happends.
now I red this instructions below (thank you so much) and did what you wrote, but stil, nothing happends.

any suggestions? i try to google, but seems that everybody solved problem with this help, except me :(

edit: this is how now looks my changed file (with that 3rd line you posted)
# udev rules file for libgphoto2 devices (for udev 0.98 version)
# Created from this library:
# libgphoto2 2.4.0 gcc, ltdl, EXIF

Hi, if your using Daryna then you should not have to change those lines.However you will need a program to import the photos, even though it says it has done it, it really has not because gthumb is not installed by default in Daryna.
Use synaptic to install gthumb and your photos will be imported.
