    Hi,

    Thanks for that Chris and big_k105, I have just had to copy the libgphoto2.pc file from /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig directory to /usr/lib/pkgconfig directory and now the ./configure works.

    I have installed the software, well at least I think I have!!!!

    I will let you know if I can get it to work

    Thanks Again

    Barry..

    Ok, I am stuck again!!!!!

    Sorry to keep asking stupid questions but I am new to all of this.

    I have installed both bits of software (I think) but using the following commands. I didn't get any errors
    Code:
    ./configure
    make 
    make check 
    make install 
    make clean
    I su before I started the whole install process.

    How do I know if the program has installed? How do I start the software? How do I download my pictures form my camera?

    Thanks

    Barry..

    You should find the gPhoto2 program on the start bar menu, probably under multimedia or summat like that.

    Failing that open a terminal window and type gphoto (or gphoto2)

    When gPhoto is running it'll likely have an option in a file menu called 'acquire source'?.

    Hopefully.

    Hi Chris,

    I have managed to get it working, I just typed gphoto2 into a terminal window and it gave me a load of options. To get the photo's from the camera, I just need to type
    Code:
    gphoto2 -p
    I am now going to have play about with it and see what I can do with it!

    Thanks again, you have helped me compile and install my first bit of software from source code!

    Cheers

    Barry..

    Well done Barry, you don't get that level of satisfaction with a Windows installer do you?
