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.

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.
