View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ubuntu 8.04 and Canon IXUS 870 IS (PTP) autodetection

November 25th, 2008, 01:23 AM

I have installed Ubuntu 8.04 on my Asus EEE 901 and everything works perfectly except for one minor problem with my Canon IXUS 870 IS camera. It is detected by gphoto2 and I can import pictures with F-Spot, but Ubuntu does not detect when I plug in the camera via the USB cable -- I have to manually launch F-Spot. This is only a minor irritation, but if there's a fix available (or if I can help debug the problem) then please let me know what to do.

Sincerely :)
