Well your report from gphoto is telling you otherwise! Its telling you that it cannot match the camera type. If you know what the app the live version was using install it.

Are you telling us that you've actually got your camera working OK in Kurumin? Kurumin is a Brazilian version of Knoppix, and Knoppix is based on Debian. So, basically, your camera should also work in Debian. Of course, it is possible that the Kurumin developer team has added some usb-camera support that is not available in the default Knoppix/Debian, but this is highly unlikely. Please tell us (in a VERY detailed manner) WHAT you actually did to get your digicam to work under Kurumin.

I haven't personally used a digital camera with Linux, but I'd be very interested to hear how this is done. TigerOC has apparently fiddled with his/her own digicam in Debian, so I think you'd do well if you'd provide TigerOC with some detailed info on HOW you succeeded to do this in Kurumin. I'd also personally be quite interested to learn from your experiences.

@j.vilon: Please tell us WHAT you've already tried -- even if it has failed. This is the MOST IMPORTANT THING -- you'll receive better answers/suggestions if you always start your message by telling us what you've already done. Also, you should tell which version of Debian you are using: Woody/stable, Sarge/testing, or Sid/unstable? The more info you'll provide, the better informed answers you'll receive.

If this works in Kurumix, it should also work in Debian.
(Sorry, I actually meant "Kurumin..")

pst, scnd...

you need to tell us exactly what you do in xterm..

firth scnd tks..

(Sorry, I tried to be ironic but apparently I'm not very good at this. However, you should ask yourself why I had the impulse to use irony in the first place. ???)

With respect sid is unstable and cutting edge stuff and as someone new to Debian (and it sounds like Linux as a whole) you would be well advised not to use it (my humble opinion). Trouble with sid is that if you are not experienced and error's come up it is very unlikely you'll even understand the errors. Do yourself a favour go to sarge or woody.

I'll repeat the advice again in this thread. You are way out of your depth with Debian. When Debian tells you its unstable then it is unstable. You need a good background in Linux and especially Debian to intrepret what's going on. You are clearly demonstrating that you lack basic experience and you will continue to struggle. You are better advised using an easier distro like Mandrake or perhaps even going back to M$.

You might want to repeat your question, that is clearly hardware-related, in another forum: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...?s=&forumid=18 Begin your question with the output of "uname -r". The supported hardware depends on the kernel version you happen to use.

usb is obviously supported in your kernel.

it is enabled by default in the 2.6 and most of the 2.4 kernels.

my suggestion is to figure out the name of the program that you used in Kumurin (you can go into the kde menu editor in the control center to figure out what program that menu item links to). once you figure out the name of that program, install it on debian with

Code:
su -c "apt-get install <program name>"
i did an "apt-cache search camera" and a few potential programs popped out that may be useful

Code:
su -c "apt-get install digikam gqcam gtkam"
once u get those installed, launch one of them either via the kde menu or at the shell with

Code:
digikam
or

Code:
gqcam
or

Code:
gtkam
