Importing photos from my Fuji FinePix S1730 using F-Spot on Ubuntu 9.04 used to work fine, but today I got the error "could not lock the device". Usually a dialog box comes up as soon as I plug the camera in, but today it didn't. I noticed the following message in dmesg:
That's when I tried it with gthumb, which gives the same problem. Sometimes the camera isn't detected at all, incidentally. I tried reinstalling f-spot to no avail.
[ 2781.148175] usb 1-3: usbfs: USBDEVFS_CONTROL failed cmd gthumb rqt 128 rq 6 len 1000 ret -110
Other people with this problem said that they needed to unmount the camera first, but my camera isn't mounted in the first place and it doesn't appear in Nautilus. Any ideas? Thanks.
