Tried GTKCam?

Or maybe another program, but I'm not sure what it's exactly called, maybe GPhoto.

It's called "gtkam".
It's a front end for "gphoto2"
You'll need:


Check at gphoto's website to see if your camera is supported.

Some usb cameras can be hotplugged as a "special device".
This method allows you to plug in and use your file manager for access.

I have found gtkam not to work so well. It often crashed after downliading the first photograph from the camera. flphoto works a whole lot better and I can certainly recomend it. It does not pick up mu Fuji FinePix A203 but does auto detect my Canon 300D which is fine.
