In Ubuntu 12.10 with the latest driver from System76, the SD reader of the Gazelle Pro 8 works perfectly fine.
However when I try to install another distro (dual-boot with Ubuntu), the SD card reader simply does not function. It seems that the only way to have an SD card working properly is with the System76 driver, which I'm not able to install on another distro.
What can I do to be able to have a functioning SD card reader on another distro (Mint 14)? Is it possible to just download a driver on that distro somehow from somewhere?
This is a picture of the SD Reader appearing as normal in Ubuntu. But this is absent in other distros. How can it be that a computer with hardware that is guaranteed to work with Linux has these issues? The hardware of my old Sony worked with all distros I tried.
I do a lot of work with photography and the only way I can transfer files from my camera to the laptop is via the SD card.
