    Digital Camera on RH9


    Hi All,

    I have a Canon Ixus 400 Digital camera that I am trying to use with Red Hat 9 but it dosen't seem to have the drivers for this on it, it only goes up to the IXUS 330.

    I waqs wondering if anyone has any drivers for the 400 or any advice of where I can get them from or if there is a work-round that will get the camera working.

    Thanks in advance

    Barry..

    Hi,

    Thanks for the advice, I have downloaded a copy of Gphoto version 2.1.3 and it is a tar.gz file.

    I am a bit new to all of this and any help would be great.

    I have un zipped the file and un-tared the file and i now have 162 odd files, what do I need to do next?

    Step by step instructions would be great.

    Thanks again

    Barry

    Just wondering if you need to uninstall the existing gphoto & libphoto first?

    Anyone?

    Hi,

    I have followed the instructions and when I typr ./configure it goes through a number of checks then I get an error saying :

    Code:
    Checking for libgphoto2 >= 2.1.1... Requested 'libgphoto2 >= 2.1.1' but version of libgphoto2 is 2.1.0
    
    Configure: error: Library requirements (libgphoto2 >=2.1.1) not met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.
    Any idea what might have caused this and how i can get rount it?

    Thanks

    Barry..

    normally after you untar something if you go into the folder that you jst created there should be a file called INSTALL if you go in there it will tell you how to install it but jst so you know the order of commands you will end up running:
    cd <folder>
    ./configure
    make
    make check
    su
    make install
    make clean

    and now it should be install but make sure to take allook for the file called INSTALL before continuing jst to make sure that these are correct. these are the commands i use for almost everything that i download to install from source. hope this helps

    edit: the problem is a dependency. you need to find and isntall the file libgphoto2 and it has to be version 2.1.1 or higher. hope this helps

    Barry, go back to the sourceforge page and download the newest tar.gz version of libgphoto2. Then do the make, install.....etc on that file. Then do the gPhoto2.

    gPhoto2 requires the latest libgphoto2 which you don't have, that's why you get a dependency error.

    Hi,

    I have just downloaded and installed Version 2.1.2 of libgphoto2, I have re-started the machine and tried the ./configure command again for gphoto2 but I am getting the same error.

    Any Suggestions?

    I thought that I would add the following.

    I have installed the software in the following paths.

    Code:
    /software/camera/gphoto2-2.1.3
    /software/camera/libgphoto2-2.1.2
    Do these need to be in the same directory for the ./configure to work? If so can I just move the libgphoto2-2.1.2 directory or will I have to uninstall the software?

    Can I just point the ./configure command to look for the libgphoto2-2.1.2 directory?

    Thanks Again

    Hi Barry, stick with it , you're almost there.

    Have a look at para 3.3.6.5 on here http://gphoto.sourceforge.net/doc/ma...FAQ-pkg-config

    Let us know how it goes?
