Question s10sh - Cannon Power Shot Program

I am trying to connect my canon power shot usb digital camera to gphoto. However, gphoto does not support usb as far as I know. I saw that there is a program called s10sh that is specifically written to overcome this exact problem. The only problem is that at the site it only offers to download the source code. Can anyone please tell me how I can install this on my computer using just the source code. Thanks!

Well most likely the source code is in a zipped tar file. Once you extract it in the directory where the file was extracted there should be a README or a INSTALL file which will tell you how to build it. Usually something like:

make install

You need to make sure you have a compiler installed and the make tools before you can build it. These should all be included on your installation cd's as RPMS or other packages.

Don't overlook gphoto2, and gtkam. These are projects ongoing at sourceforge, and there IS a USB library in these projects. I have a pal with a USB some kind of Minolta, and his is working fine.
