I have a similar situation with a Cannon Powershot A40. I can't mount it, but gphoto is able to access it. I had to modify a config file or two in order for the ugen devices to be created writable by anyone other than root. Sorry, I don't have access to that box at the moment or I'd offer something a bit more concrete.
gphoto2 turns out to work fine, thanks very much! I wonder why Digikam doesn't work, then?
I have a Canon Powershot A70, and the same problem. I bought a SanDisk card reader, and it works perfectly with a Compact Flash card that has been used in the A70. It can be mounted as mount -t msdos /dev/da0s1 /mnt
This may turn out to be the easiest thing in the long run: certainly my wife and kids aren't going to want to learn a CLI for getting at their snaps. I guess it's either a) buy a cardreader, b) get Digikam to work or c) something else I don't know about yet.
Thanks for both your help, Ben
My trivial shell-script called "getphotos" does what I need, with the appropriate entry in /etc/fstab, of course. If you called it from a desktop icon, it should meet the "wife and even quite young kids" standard - with absolutely no disrespect intended to your wife and/or kids! And I am quite sure several people will point out how to simplify the script.
#!/bin/sh mount /flash find /flash/dcim -name "*.jpg" >/tmp/photos.txt x1=`cat /tmp/photos.txt` for f in $x1 do cp $x1 ~/pics/Raw/ done cd ~/pics/Raw chown mike * chmod -x * umount /flash
gtkam is a GUI front-end for gphoto. I added an entry to /etc/usb.conf to launch gtkam when the camera is connected. Honestly, I've only tried it once since setting it all up, but it worked wonderfully that one time.
