    What Linux programs can be used to access digital camera memory cards?


    OK I just joined this century and finally have a Fuji T-400 digital camera. Now I need to know what Linux programs I can use to open and transfer the pictures onto my computer from the USB 2.0 slot. Does anyone have any suggestions, please? Thank you!

    I like gtkam, but digikam and f-spot should work, too. You can check here for more potential options:

    Thanks Oz! I discovered that the USB 2.0 plug at the front of my computer does not work. I used an USB extension cord and plugged into a slot at the back of my computer and Shotwell brings up the images right away. I think my computer is, like me, fading fast!!

    If you need more USB 2.0 ports up toward the front of your box, get one of these (not necessarily this brand, model, or vendor):

    7-Port USB 2.0 Hub, Black: Computers & Accessories

    ...and have fun with that new camera!

    Just about any photo editting software that's half way decent should be able to open your images. I just use my file manager ( Dolphin) to browse/copy/paste to my images directory. I mostly use gimp for my images but that's just a personal preference . Hope you enjoy using that new camera.

    I'm storing my images in my discontinued PCLinuxOS Gnome distro so I am very limited in adding any new
    programs to it. It is much easier to be able to manage my websites using this distro.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    SD cards are, like USB drives, formatted with FAT/FAT-32. Any Linux or Windows system can read them with a suitable card reader. Myself, I like USB carriers that look like a standard thumb drive, but have a slot to stick the SD card into. I even have one for my micro sd cards to handle my mp3 files for my car stereo. It's about the size of my little finger nail!
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
