Unhappy GtKam won't let me use serial port


My wife needed some pictures downloaded off of my Fuji MX1200 Camera. I decided to give it a shot through Linux in GtKam. I looked through the list of camera's and mine was listed. But it is a serial port camera and it would not let me choose a serial port to interface with it. It would only let me choose USB. How can I fix this?

I have the same problem. I found that very dialog. It asks me to add the port. Great. What the heck do I type in? I tried /dev/ttys0, and several similar variations.

You mean /dev/ttyS0 ? I dunno what dev serial ports are in linux. That is a link to /dev/tty/0 on my setup.
