View Full Version : [ubuntu] Upgrade gphoto2 2.4.11 to 2.5.2

December 11th, 2013, 11:42 PM
The latest release of gphoto2 through "apt" appears to be 2.4.11.

I tried to install the latest version (2.5.2) and another (2.4.14) from source using the ./configure; make; make install; approach from the tarballs. Before attempting this installation I used the same method to install the libgphoto2 libraries with the same version numbers. This appeared to work. When running "make" for either gphoto2-2.5.2 or 2.4.14 it fails to finish successfully. It reports several undefined references. (This forum does not let me attach the text file which shows the results of one of this runs (46K forum restricts to 19K)). I have not been able to figure out how to fix or find the files it reports it needs.

Can someone help with the install? How is the apt-get packaging handled? Who builds the package?

Thank you.
