Fuji Finepix F30 doesn't work


Hi,

I'm trying to get a Fuji Finepix F30 digital camera to work, but so far it won't...

The camera is recognized, from lsusb:
Code:
Bus 1 Device 8: ID 04cb:019b Fuji Photo Film Co., Ltd
Digikam (which doesn't seem to recognize the camera) and all dependencies are installed, when I plug the camera in it turns up in media:/USB Imaging Interface, clicking it gives this:

(translated someting like this)
Code:
Couldn't start the following proces: Not able to make io-slave. Klauncher: unkown protocol: 'camera'.
I've been searching a lot for this, but can't seem to get it working, so any help is highly appreciated.

Slackware 12, KDE.

Try running digikam as root and see if it works. Could be a permissions problem. If it works then you have to play with udev rules (if you are using udev) so that the device node is created with access for you to use it. I would create a "camera" group and add your user to it, then make the udev rule to allow the camera group rw access.

If digikam does not work as root then try installing libptp. That again will only work as root unless the you have rw access to the device when it is plugged in.

Let me know if that works

Thanks for the advice!
Indeed, as root it just works.
So it has to be a permissions matter.
But I haven't got the faintest idea where to go from now...

If you are using udev you have to setup a udev rule for the device so that when you plug it in the device node is created with certain permissions. Do you know if you are using udev? It should be one of your services: /etc/rc.d/rc.udev. Check that first and we'll go from there.

Ok... so udev it is.

You will need to edit the udev rule for your device. Here's how:

plug it in and issue the lsusb command:

Code:
johnny@PUSSANDBELLE:/etc/udev/rules.d$ /sbin/lsusb
Bus 6 Device 2: ID 04cb:01c6 Fuji Photo Film Co., Ltd
The device id is what we are after here. In my case its 04cb:01c6.

Next go to /etc/udev/rules.d and open libmtp.rules with your favourite editor. Add the line for your camera. In my case the line I added looks like this:

Code:
SYSFS{idVendor}=="04cb", SYSFS{idProduct}=="01c6", MODE="660", GROUP="camera"
Replace with your Vendor and Product ID.

As you can see I set the rule up so that people in the camera group will have rw access. I suggest the same instead of using 666 since this will open up the device to the world. Then add your account to the camera group and log off and login again. Try it out... let me know.
