    Ubuntu doesn't detect camera


    Hi

    I'm having problem getting my camera to be detected to import some photos. I use a Kodak LS743. The program that I use to get photos is Gthumb image viewer. In this program, I can see that the camera is actually detected. However, the device is not in the "Computer" window. Also, it shows this error:

    An error occurred in the io-library ('Unspecified error'): No error description available

    I'm not sure what kind of information you need, so let me know. Any help would be appreciated.

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

    Can you remove the flash card from the camera and plug that into a USB reader on your computer? That should work just fine. The camera itself may be another issue since though it is a USB device, it probably is not presenting itself as a disc drive to the computer, so special software would be needed to access it. That's why they probably have some driver software for Windows on a disc that came with the camera. You could try to install that software under Wine, which might just work. Without trying it, I cannot say for sure, but it is possible.

    I used camera to download picture (batteries in camera are needed)
    Use linux photo software to get pictures.
    *** dont remember what i used when i had ubuntu ***
    driver normal not needed.

    Only problem was the format . Had to edit in gimp and save it.

    It was probably in a raw format which is why you had to read it w/ gimp and save it as a jpeg or tiff. Tiff is better if you don't want to lose any data, since jpeg is a lossy format.
