Titel: user access to digital camera  BeitragVerfasst am: 17.09.2006, 17:44 Uhr

I can only access the pictures on my Canon digital camera by using gthumb as root. What do I need to do to allow access as a regular user? I have no problem accessing USB thumbdrives as user, and I could access my daughter's Samsung camera as user with no problem.

Thanks for any help resolving this situation.

Gthumbs uses gphoto for camera support is your camera supported, you can see here.
www.gphoto.org/proj/libgphoto2/support.php

You could try purge and reinstalling gthumbs but it seems strange that it can see your daughters camera as user not root. I think digikam is better for photo management you could install it and see if it works. In theory it should be no better recognising your camera than gthumb but maybe worth a try.

What release of Kanotix are you using? I had a problem like this with my Canon A430 on gtkam, digikam or gphoto but upgrading to 2006-Easter and using du-fixes-h2.sh seems to have fixed access to everything on the usb port including the camera. Now it is recognized as an A430 and works quite well.

Thanks for your responses.

I should clarify that I did not access my daughter's camera with gthumb. When I plugged in the camera and turned it on it was detected automatically, and all I had to do was open it in Konqueror and download the pictures.

I'm convinced that the problem I'm having has to do with permissions. The error message that displays when I try to use gthumb as user says I need to check that I have sufficient rights to access the device. As a test, I just tried out the new Ubuntu 6.06-1 and was able to access my camera in gthumb as regular user, no problem.

I'm running the Kanotix Cebit version, but I today I tried accessing the camera in Kanotix 2006-rc1 and encountered the same problem. What is this du-fixes-h2.sh you mention? I haven't run across that before.

I missunderstood, I though one camera worked but not another, if you think it is permissions check to see if you if you have access to the camera group. KDE menu - system - Kuser

Okay, this is so weird!

I just now tried again to access the camera as user, and it worked flawlessly. I don't know of anything that's changed since the last time I tried.

Then I tried the same thing with another user account, and gthumb said "camera type unknown".

Had a similar problem using a Kodak DX7590 and Kanotix-2006-01-rc3. Using gtkam and digikam, I could access the camera's images as root but not as a user. Seems the permissions are foobarred for the gphoto2 libraries.
What I did (using synaptic) - remove all the gphoto2 stuff including its library (libgphoto2-2 and libgphoto-port0) and delete its configuration file. This the "Mark for complete removal" option in Synaptic. You will find some dependent programmes are also removed.

Use Synaptic to reinstall the whole lot by downloading from the debian repository and all should work.

I use synaptic for lots of reasons but mainly because I'm a lazy slug and usually the magic works.

Hope this helps,
