    digital camera doesn't work -driver issue?


    My SuSE linux 10.1 has stopped being able to detect my digicam, it used to be able to yesterday, I dont' know what's changed.
    It is a Casio Exilim EX-S600L, and it is listed correctly in usb devices as "CASIO QV DIGITAL" under "EHCI Host Controller(6)".
    When I run "gphoto --debug -L" as root, it returns
    Code:
       (loads more 'could not find usb device lines, followed by ...)

    I did recently quit some of the things that were in the bottom right hand corner system tray, and set them to not start at logon - could any of these be to do with it? I thought they were all unnecessary like one was kpowersave (battery monitor) which I shut down as it was only for laptops, but could it be that I've shut down something necessary for the camera to operate?

    Any appreciations as to what could be the problem very much appreciated - you are a god if you can help me get to the bottom of this

    Have you tried rebooting lately?
    Sometimes a process won't shutdown correctly and it leaves things out of whack.
    Have you tried just plugging in the camera and browse it with konqueror? That's how I do it, without drivers or anything, it just works.

    yeah i've tried rebooting, and it's still not having it.

    What location do I browse to in konqueror, i.e. what's it's "address"?

    Well here's what I do, Plug in the camera(Samsung Digimax S500), and KDE asks me if I'd like to open the new medium in a new window or do nothing. I click ok (new window) and it mounts the camera at /media/sda1

    that's what mine used to do, but now it doesn't ask me when i plug it in - I can't figure out what's changed.
    anybody else any ideas?

    Are you using KDE also?
    Go in the Control Center (gnome has one too but I forget)
    Click on >Peripherals>Storage Media. And from there you can add/change actions for Cameras, HD, CDroms and everything else.

    Yes, I'm using KDE, but in Yast control centre I can't see "Peripherals" or "storage media".
    I've got Software, Hardware, System, Network Devices, Network Services, Novell AppArmor, Security and Users, Miscellaneous. Which of those could what you're referring to be in?

    oh! it just worked when I turned Novell AppArmor off!


    Come to think of it I have been getting a dodgy, very windows-like error when starting up , like "System.NullReference exception - Object is null or not an object" and IIRC from the title of the message box it is coming from apparmor. Now if I'm not mistaken that's a .NET error, I can't remember ever giving my computer permission to run mono or wine...
    It must be to blame for this!

    Anyhow thanks for working it through with me, you led me down a path which the answer was lying next to.

    oh, shite. it's not working again. Novell apparmor is off. Has anybody got any idea why it won't work?
