Getting Kodak camera recognized


I'm wondering what's the best way to get my Kodak CX6330 digital camera working in Debian? I tried using kde's peripherals> Camera in Control Center but when I test it I get a 'Bad Parameters' error.
Any ideas?

does your camera have a mass-storage mode? or is it just PTP?

Generally, you can simply mount it like any other USB device.

When I mount my own camera, a simple
mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/camera
does the trick.

I have a CX6200 and used hotplug for the usb part and gphoto2. You'll need to look at the gphoto2 docs for the commands.
I have the following entry in /etc/fstab;
none /proc/bus/usb usbdevfs defaults,devmode=0666 0 0
It works well with digikam

Not too sure about that... It's got a 256MB card if that's what you mean by 'mass-storage'.
