    Someone knows how it goes - Slack+gphoto2

    Hi you,

    perhaps i'm in luck and someone here in the round has found a way to install "gphoto2, libgphoto2" and be able to start this program from the command line, as a simple "user", and not as "root"!?

    I'm out of experiences this question find no answer.
    Red the usb guide-line, but in the middle of infomation i saw there are no "linux-hotplug", or such scripts from "gphoto2" like "console.usemap" ...

    Before (with "10.2") i had only to change the permissions with, "$ chmod a+w /proc/bus/usb/002/...", but this way is closed now in Slackware 11.0, (for me) to start "gphoto2" out of root.

    May be someone has found a solution in this (my) question - i would be thankfully!

    ... have a solution by myself!

    Could find (handle) all photos, although the permissions are "root"!

    Device creation and permissions are now handled by udev if you are using a >2.6.15 kernel. As you know udev is a little different from devfs and hotplug used in the 2.4 kernel.
