USB Digital Camera


Hey:

I'm having a hard time figuring out USB device support. I have a new digital camera, and I'm trying to get it working under linux....no luck so far.

I've tried modprobe usb-uhci, and modprobe usbstorage, both of which seem to work (no errors when I read the output of dmesg). At this point, I'm stuck. I tried using gphoto2 and it's not recognizing anything. I tried following instruction and mounting it as a drive, no luck.

Anyone out there got this working? A little help would be appreciated.

Hi !

from my side I'm using a Kingston USB 6-in-1 reader.

Passing the following command via the console I can access my IBM Microdrive which is inserted in it :
$ mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/usbdrive

Before that I of course defined a mountpoint under hda2 /mnt/usbdrive

GLB !

when you run dmesg, it should tell you where you're camera is (sda1,sda4,sdb,sdb1,etc). Most likely the fs will be vfat. Like membrax said, just make a mount point for it in fstab and you should be good to go.

If you're on Slack 8.1, get and install USB Manager... on Slack 9, go and get
Murasaki

(If you want to recompile your kernel with hotplug support
in Slack 8.1 you can use Murasaki there, too ;})

The problem is that you need to get SCSI sussed, too,
and then find as which device the cam is actually
recognised ... either of the tools above do a pretty good
job at that (if the author heard of your cam before, that is ;})

Cheers,
Tink

Alot depends on the Manufactuer and model of digital camera you have. Some like a Fuji are treated as mass storage devices and are simply mounted. Once mounted you can use a file manager to look at the photos.

Others, like Canon, need drivers. Gphoto2 supports several hundred drivers and is a good starting point.
