    Unhappy Digital camera: no access to photos

    Hi all,

    I just plugged in a digital camera (Canon PowerShot A530) into my PC's USB port running Hardy Heron, and... nothing. It doesn't appear anywhere: I can't see it if I go to Computer, I can't see it under /media. I tried launching f-spot but it doesn't even start (I get the notification in the task bar that it's starting and then poof! gone). I tried both options in System, Preferences, Removable Drives and Media menu but nothing changes whether the Digital Camera checkbox is selected or not.

    I get this in syslog when I connect the camera:

    May 31 14:44:46 ciabata NetworkManager: <debug> [1212259486.670773] nm_hal_device_added(): New device added (hal udi is '/org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/usb_device_4a9_3126_noserial').
    May 31 14:44:46 ciabata NetworkManager: <debug> [1212259486.822258] nm_hal_device_added(): New device added (hal udi is '/org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/usb_device_4a9_3126_noserial_if0').

    Similarly, in the message log:

    May 31 14:44:46 ciabata kernel: [ 442.063210] usb 6-7: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 6
    May 31 14:44:46 ciabata kernel: [ 442.132092] usb 6-7: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice

    This would indicate that the camera does indeed get recognized somehow. Then how come I don't get either f-spot or a folder in the file browser?

    Re: Digital camera: no access to photos

    Could you show us the output of dmesg:

    There seems to be a bug in F-spot see this

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...ger/+bug/37694

    Have you tried any other programs eg: digikam or gtkcam? Also check /media directory to see if it shows up there.

    The above two lines (second set) are from the message log (dmesg). Also, there is nothing in the /media directory other than the usual suspects (cdrom, floppy, other removable USB devices).

    I can't find either digicam or gtkcam packages under Synaptic, what are they?
