Trouble mounting Canon Powershot Digital Camera

I have a Canon Powershot A300 digital camera. I'm running Slack' 10.2 (full install) with KDE 3.5. What is the easiest and most efficient way to mount my digital camera?

Probably installing Digikam and accessing your camera through it. The Gnome's similar program (that uses the same libs) is bit more user-friendly in my opinion, but if you're using KDE, Digikam is probably what you want.

There probably are other programs too but that works for me. The only downside is that it tends to download two non-image files too (some datafiles), and Digikam refuses to download any videos from my HP cameras. No idea why, it might be the camera model too..though I remember I was able to download videos earlier.

Anyway, get Digikam and it's dependencies.

Thanks for the info!

B0uncer, thanks for the information, I will try out digikam later when I get home. Do I have to know the device block or will it auto detect the camera? Thanks again!
