    GSIII "Error initializing Camera" - How to fix?

    I own a GSIII and I recently felt like transferring my photos and videos into my Ubuntu desktop.

    When I plug it in, Ubuntu recognizes my internal and external sdcards, but not my camera. It comes up with an error message. Then, I open shotwell, only to realize it doesn't recognize any photos from my phone.

    I've done some research and installed libmtp and libusb, but I don't know how to use them. Also, I heard of jmtpfs is a brilliant way, but the process looks incredibly daunting.

    I wish to transfer my photos to Ubuntu in a seamless manner. How can I do it?

    Only wish shotwell can do it.

    It's not clear what you want to do. In your second paragraph, it sounds like Ubuntu recognized your phone, but then you said you want Ubuntu to recognize your phone.

    If you want Ubuntu to use your phone as a webcam, that seems unlikely. If you want to copy files from your phone's storage, that seems easy.

    What version of Ubuntu?

    The standard way to import photos would be with Nautilus. I create a folder under Pictures, then go to the new folder and paste the files from my camera.

    Sorry, I don't use Shotwell, just Eye of Gnome and GIMP.
