Dolphin and Gwenview only read Digital camera in KDE as root


Dear slackers,
I am using Slackware64-14.1 with the generic-3.10.17 kernel.
I want to see the pictures in my digital camera with dolphin in KDE. This works perfect when I
am logged in as root, but not when I am a regular user. My user is called marto and he is a member of the
plugdev group. gphoto2 works ok with the camera:

Code:
bash-4.2$ whoami
marto

gphoto2 --auto-detect
Model                          Port

I also tried adding the file 90-usbcam.rules to /etc/udev/rules.d:
Code:
cat 90-usbcam.rules
ACTION=="add" \
SUBSYSTEM=="usb" \
ATTR{product}=="Nikon Digital Camera" \
ATTR{manufacturer}=="Nikon Corp." \
GROUP:="plugdev" \
MODE:="0664"
then unplugged an plugged the camera in again, but still the dolphin window remains empty
and in gwenview the "Import selected" buttons are not active.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Best regards,
Martin

Can't you just add yourself to group "plugdev"?
