    13.10: Can't download pictures from Camera Finepix S5800

    I have installed Xubuntu 13.10 and I can't download pictures from my camera (Finepix S5800).
    The same goes on another desktop I have at home with Kubuntu 13.10.
    Difference between Kubuntu and Xubuntu is that with Xubuntu I can at least watch them (but it's painfully slow even with few pictures in it) with the image viewer (Ristretto).

    The fdisk -l output doesn't seem to list the camera:
    Code:

    Re: 13.10: Can't download pictures from Camera Finepix S5800

    After my original use of digital camera, I have never bothered to attach any of my cameras to the computer direct but have always used a card reader which I found to be a great deal faster when uploading from the card to the computer.

    I realise this does not actually answer you query but a decent card reader can normally be found for a few pounds/dollars and I would suggest is a good investment for very little money.

    @Ajgreeny: thanks for your suggestion, but in the worst case scenario, I can quickly load the vm with Windows 7 I had and move the pictures that way.
    But I find annoying that I have to resort to loading the vm just for that.

    I think you need to put it in PTP mode when you switch it on plugged in to pc.

    The camera goes in USB mode when I plug it in the usb port.
    Moreover the camera has no issues in Windows 7

    Install the apps gthumb or pinta. See if they can see the camera ok.

    I have a canon, panasonic and sony which all seem to be recognised as does my Galaxy s3. It could be an issues with the odd model of camera.

    Just seen this https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...ux/+bug/495654
    Although it says fix released.
