Canon G9 - Digikam


Thought this might be useful info, as there is nothing specific in LQ .org about the 'Canon Power Shot G9' digital camera and Digikam - it's not listed in gphoto2.

So, if you happen to get your hands on a G9 (Digikam won't detect it), add this line to /etc/udev/rules.d/90-libgphoto2.rules (Slackware 12.0, in this case - or whatever your libgphoto2.rules file is named).

Quote:
ATTRS{idVendor}=="04a9", ATTRS{idProduct}=="315a", MODE="0660", GROUP="plugdev"
Quote:
#lsusb -v
lists the idVendor and idProduct.

Add
Quote:
USB PTP Class Camera
in Digikam 'Add Camera', or Settings - Camera, or detect automatically.

Note: I made the mistake of editing the default udev.rules, until I worked out that it was only necessary to edit libgphoto2.rules. Consequently, Firefox wouldn't work and it was impossible to login to the users desktop. Removing the offending line fixed the problem.
