Has anyone used a Kodak camera dock successfully in Ubuntu?


We need to upgrade our digital camera and I am quite impressed with Kodak models. I like the camera dock accessory but do not know if it can be used in Linux, specifically my Ubuntu distribution. It is a USB device which is both a camera battery charger and a card reader (it transfers the pictures to the computer without having to remove the card through some kind of port the camera sits on). I have used many USB devices successfully such as a sandisk cardreader, but I was hoping to find out for sure if the docking station will work before I purchase it. Thank you!!

I would check out the HCL here at Linuxquestions.org. They have some Kodak models listed. Check to see if your's is there. Another site might be www.linuxcompatible.org. I see some Kodaks listed there as well.

Thank you. The model I am considering was not listed, but a similar one was on the linuxcompatible.org list. At least one person has had success with the printer dock.

Just so you-all know what's up... We went ahead and bought a Kodak Z700 camera but did not get the dock. The camera is great and as soon as I plugged it into the USB, it was detected and pictures could be transferred with no hassle whatsoever. Just thought I'd let ya know!
