You should probably post what linux distribution you are using. It would help people give you suggestions.

You would also get a better response by putting a different subject other than "help me" on your question.

My first recommendation is to use Ubuntu. I had to do no configuring of my digital camera with Ubuntu. I used Digikam a couple of years ago on Debian and it was a real pain to get it working.

"Error Connecting".

When I got this it was permissions problem with usbfs.

Look in /etc/fstab for usbfs entry. If you have an entry then change the line so it looks like this:
Code:
none    /proc/bus/usb    usbfs devgid=10,devmode=0664,busgid=10,busmode=775  0   0
You should change the devgid and busgid to a group which you are in. In most distros GID=10 is wheel, so you could add your user to wheel group and that would work also.

Don't forget you must remount usbfs:
# mount /proc/bus/usb -o,remount

Digital Camera

The Distro I'm using is, Debian.

I used the Terminal and put in, apt-get install digikam.
When it was done downloading I found it in, Graphics.

When I got into digikam, I clicked on Camera and then, add.
The camera list came up and Nikon L3. was not in there.

I went over to the Camera Title and put in Nikon L3
and chose USB then, Enter

The following came up.

Under Title, Nikon L3
Under Model, AEG Snap 300
Under Port, usb:
Under Path, There was nothing.

Could the problem be in, no Path?
If it is, what would I have to do?

I don't know anything about the digicam program, but it sounds like it is making things more complicated than necessary. All I do to look at my pictures from my camera is to connect the camera to the computer through the mini-usb cable, do a

Code:
dmesg
to get the address of the camera (probablt /dev/sda1, but could be other places), and then mount that location to another point, like in /media, or /home, or /mnt/camera if it exists. If dmesg sees it as /dev/sda1, then as root I would do:

Code:
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/camera
That should allow you to browse into /mnt/camera and navigate down to your pictures. You may need to mess with the permissions to copy/modify them.

Peace,
JimBass

This camera uses a SD memory module as far as I can see so it will be treated as a storage device. Create a new directory under root called /camera or use /mnt/camera or /mnt/NikonL3 its entirely up to you. Add the following line to /etc/fstab;

/dev/sda1 /mnt/camera vfat rw,user,noauto 0 0

note the /mnt/camera depends on the directory structure you choose.

In digikam go to Camera -> add new and on the right under camera title enter the name then select usb and under mount path add the line as in the fstab eg as above ;
/mnt/camera

To get it working from the command line as root do;

mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/camera or

if you are using kde then go to System -> Info Centre -> storage devices click on the device and select mount. Now go back to digikam and select the camera and it should show the pictures.
