Now, using Debian testing, with kernel 2.4.25-1-386, have installed
gphoto, (and the front end gtkam).
So I run gtkam and it will detect my camera, however there is an error:
Could not initialize camera.
If I try and use kde control center >peripherals >digital camera:
Unable to initialize camera. Check your port settings and camera
connectivity and try again.
My USB printer/scanner and USB mouse work fine.
I have searched, and searched, and the best I can come up with is USB
permissions, or needing SCSI emulation.
I know this can work, because it works in Mandrake.
Any ideas are appreciated.
I am running testing too (2.4.24-1-868), but I have gphoto2, not
gphoto, and I can grab pictures from a Canon A300 quite easily:
$> dpkg -l gphoto2 gtkam
|/ Err?=(none)/Hold/Reinst-required/X=both-problems (Status,Err:
||/ Name Version Description
ii gphoto2 2.1.4-2 The gphoto2 digital camera command-line client
ii gtk 0.1.2-2 GTK+ application for digital still cameras
So I guess you should try installing gphoto2 and try again. Should work.
try usbmgr and usbview (debian) a try and the gphoto2 lib's
maybe.... it works it did with me.
you never know you never can tell...
