HP Photosmart 435 Digital Camera


Has anyone gotten the HP Photosmart 435 Digital Camera to work through the USB cable???

I have tried in SuSE 8.2 and the result is a segfault when I try to connect it as a PTP (Photo Transfer Protocol) device, or a locked hotplug support and Digikam if I try to connect as a USB Mass Storage Device. Both are available by setting on the camera.

I have the ability to read the SD card through my single slot ImageMate card reader, but I find removing the card to be an inellegant solution.

Any help??? Any Suggestions???

You could try accessing your camera directly instead of through applications. Here's how I got my camera working:

Although it was with Mandrake 9.1, the essential parts of it might be applicable to SuSE 8.2.

If you can't get it to work come back and post the output of:

cdrecord -scanbus
lsmod

and post the contents of your /etc/modules.conf file. Before you do all of these, boot your computer without your camera connected, then connect your camera after turning it on (the order is important).

To JaseP: (or others that may know)

I am now running into the same access problem. My 435 Photosmart is seen,
creates a desktop link, and starts to access.....but then during acquisition kills the application. (Kamera and others)
Have you had any luck?
Thanks.

Please tell me if you managed to attach your camera as a USB storage device and mount it, I am having problems doing that.

HP Photosmart 435

I have just upgraded to SuSE 9.0 Professional and the camera works fine!
Also, HSF modem and ACPI are working both on my laptop and desktop!
SuSE 9 is, so far, the way to go.

The 435 is automatically recognized and mounted by Digikam 0.6.

Hope you can make the switch!

Got mine working! (Mandrake 9.1)

I too have a HP photosmart 435, no luck with PTP, so I tried the mass storage, here's how:

Put this in your /etc/fstab:

none /mnt/usbdisc supermount dev=/dev/sda,fs=vfat,--,user,umask=0 0 0

In mandrake 9.1 at least, the icon appears on the desktop and everything is schweet. You may need to type "mount /mnt/usbdisc" as root.

I called it "usbdisc" instead of "camera" or something because /dev/sda is sometimes a pen drive, also /dev/sda might not be what the device is called on your system, it may be sdb, sdc or whatever. It might be worth noting here that USB mass storage is essentially SCSI over USB, so as far as Linux is concerned, you're dealing with an SCSI hard drive and not a camera.

Hope this helps!
