View Full Version : [ubuntu] Connecting to my Cannon iXus

January 12th, 2010, 10:33 PM
I have a Cannon iXus about 5 year old...I am trying to connect it via a USB cable to my PC....but it does not recognise it at all....nothing comes up. I can use the CompactFlash adaptor to connect via my old PC...but my new PC does not have such a slot and so I want to connect via cable.

This mentions a couple of Ixus models, but some don't seem to have been tested on recent releases.

Thanks for that pointer....I tried gphoto2 and gtkam but neither seem to have worked.

Actually I did manage to get Gtkam to work for a while...but now it will not work any more...I don't know what might have changed.
