Hi, as a non-developer I had reported a lack of success in using a
digital photo frame under Debian:
Hans de Goede had reported success with supporting digital picture
frames with the following USB ID's:
on his web site http://hansdegoede.livejournal.com/9183.html and
provided a link to
provided generic instructions.
I had obtained more recent source (184.108.40.206) from the Sourceforge
and subscribed to the mailing lists which are also available on
gmane.org, but require registration to post:
[Aside, it is not easy to find the web pages for mailing lists on
To build on Debian I did the following:
apt-get build-dep libgphoto2
apt-get source libgphoto2
and downloaded libgphoto2 220.127.116.11 source from sourceforge and unpacked it.
I copied the debian directory from the Debian source to the libgphoto2
18.104.22.168 directory and removed some non-compatible patches from
10_disable_cache 45_increase_canon_timeout 80_kfreebsd
11_hurd_no_path_max_bsdsource 70_increase_max_entries series
I also had to edit a couple of lines in the following files in the
in libgphoto2-2-dev.files add ,usbscsi,usbdiskdirect
in libgphoto2-port0.files add ,usbscsi,usbdiskdirect
I also installed libgd2-xpm-dev (libgd2-xpm was already installed).
Without libgd2*dev, the source code will build but will not be able to
transfer picture files to and from the frame successfully.
I then built and installed the created packages:
ls -t *.deb|head -2|xargs dpkg -i
and also ran:
libgphoto2-22.214.171.124/packaging/generic# ./print-camera-list udev-rules
version 136 > /lib/udev/rules.d/40-libgphoto2.rules
Then as a user I could run:
and move picture files from the photo frame. I have yet to resize and
convert to PNG format images to upload to the frame.
Thanks to Hans de Goede for his work in getting this digital photo frame
