udev in slack-11 with digikam

I can access my canon ps a400 as root in digikam but not as a user. Previously I used udev and a usbcam script in /etc/hotplug to sort out permissions for users but it is my understanding that if using a 2.6 kernel and rc.udev is executable, then there is no hotplug.

This is obviously a permission problem but my few attempts at creating a udev rule to handle creating a camera group and 0660 permissions have been unsuccessful.

Can anyone shed some light on this.

Hello, justwantin.
Here is a reply I made to a similar question. It works quite well for me:

Thanks for the tip!

A good night's sleep and a re-read of the thread metioned above and it now works. besides missing " " in one place I had also used the 6 digit numbers from lsusb -v for vendor and product id's instead of just the last 4 digits.

Works fine now and I can put my grumbles back in the drawer.

Now that I'm on the happy side of the pain I can see some virtues in straight udev without hotplug. hadn't given it much thought until yesterday
