Thanks Alexis! I can access the camera as root, indeed. As soon as I get
home I´ll try your suggestion.
If your camera is supposed to be mounted as a USB device, I think you
should also be in the plugdev group.
I have a Nikon D70 and it works great with usb storage. I have unloaded
gigabytes of photos like that.
Set it to USB Storage in the setup on the camera and attach it to the
computer. Look in your system log to see what device it is assigned and
mount it as a vfat file system.
If you run Gnome with the gnome-volume-manager it will be mounted and
opened automatically when you plug it in.
You have absolutely no need for gphoto for the D70.
