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
| Status=Not/Installed/Config-files/Unpacked/Failed-config/Half-installed
|/ Err?=(none)/Hold/Reinst-required/X=both-problems (Status,Err: uppercase=bad)

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...
