Question Image download problem from Canon EOS cameras, Driver change?


I have been using Ubuntu on my Lenovo 3000 N100 laptop for over a year. However, after upgrading to the latest build it no longer supports image transfer from my Canon EOS D30 camera. I know the camera is not at fault because I can still transfer to my Windows XP Pro computer with no problems. Is anyone else having this or similar problems?

When image transfer was possible, how did you do it?

With my Canon 500D and Debian 6, I use Digikam for image transfer. To set up Digikam:
1) turn the camera on, then plug it in to a usb port.
2) in Digikams Import menu, click on Cameras - add camera manually.
3) select camera model from the drop-down list (your D30 is listed).

It's been a while since I set it up so I don't remember the rest. I have a vague memory of a camera search button to find the plugged in camera.

Since then, all I need to do is plug in the cmaera and start Digikam to gain access to my pictures.

Question Image transfer

Before the latest Ubuntu upgrade all I did was plug in the camera to the USB port and Shotwell recognized it immediately and began transfer. Now when I plug it in Shotwell still recognizes it but transfer never takes place and Shotwell locks up. Very strange. I will try Digikam and see if that works any better.
Thanks for the response.

Angry Doesn't work with Digikam either.

Digikam has the same problem as Shotwell. Something must have changed with Ubuntu 12.04. the driver for earlier EOS cameras no longer works.

Information update: there seems to be a bug that been around since Ubuntu 11.04, which also affects some Debian machines, using Nautilus.

Basically, Nautilus automounts the camera drive, then shotwell can't get a lock on the camera drive and crashes.

The workaround seems to be to first plug in the camera, then umount the drive from Nautilus. Then start shotwell.

Read the bug report here: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=610207
