Slackware- I cannot download pictures from my camera
 
Hi I am trying to get some pictures from my Canon and I dont know what its not appearing in the file manager.

I did look:

And its connecting I did it by : lsusb

Then create the rules file.

Then try to mount by creating a folder in the mnt folder

but it said is mount: /dev/bus/usb/002/008 is not a block device

read some post on suggesting libgphoto

I looked and I have installed libgphoto2-2.4.14-i486-2

Know how do I use it?

I want to just download the pictures from my camera :-(, sometimes I feel that all in slack is a long task! :-(

Connect your camera, open a terminal and use the command dmesg to see how it's detected...if you see something about /dev/sdb /dev/sdb1 or something like that...then it's /dev/sdb1 you should mount.
# mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/hd

..or you can do it the way I did it...got tired of the usb-cable and bought myself a cardreader ;)

My machine has already a card reader :-), but I cannot be bother keep taking the card out.

I already create the rules so every time I connect it create the device name so you know how its called.

This is not working I tried also:
mount /dev/Camera /mnt/camera
mount: /dev/bus/usb/002/009 is not a block device

this is not the solution!

Another command you can try is:

# blkid

I used that before when I was having trouble connecting to my camera.

Is your camera supported..
http://www.gphoto.org/proj/libgphoto2/
..at the bottom of the page "list of supported cameras"

Can you show us the rule you made.

What happens if you run the following commands with your camera connected and switched on?

Code:

gphoto2 --auto-detect
gphoto2 --get-all-files

So just create a folder called Pictures and run the commands from in that folder, then your pictures will be downloaded to that folder.

Yes - what I do is create a folder called scripts in ~ and add that (home/$user/scripts) to paths in /etc/profile.

e.g. I saved this to ~/scripts as photos (make it executable)

Code:

#!/bin/bash
cd /home/slack/Pictures
gphoto2 --get-all-files

All I do now is type
Code:

photos
and my folders are downloaded to where I want them to be.

Every is straight forward except that profile file where exactly do I add that path?

What file system is your camera using?

Mine does not show up in a file manager because it's a PTP class camera, but it works fine with gtkam. There's a Slackbuild, if you want to give it a shot.

If you make a folder in your home direcotry called Pictures, then the path to that folder will be

/home/yourusername/Pictures

So just substitute your user name for mine and you'll be good to go.
