hald log after camera is plugged in (33.92 KB, text/plain)

Description Pekka Pietikäinen 2004-10-23 11:18:45 UTC
Description of problem:

When plugging in my Nikon Coolpix 995 camera and using gthumb-import
%h as the import thing I get two "There are new pictures" dialogs, one

and the other for

The first one fails since the thing is used by usb-storage and it tries
gthumb --import-photos, the second one works just as I want it to.

So close to working perfectly that it's almost annoying 
(I didn't have high hopes for this stuff initially :-) )

I've attached a hald debug log in case that helps.


Would be nice to get working some time after FC3 ;)

The quick fix is to edit /etc/hotplug/usb.usermap and take out the
line for your camera.  Eventually these will all be changed into FDI
files so we have finer control on how they are detected.

David, is this fixed yet?

Comment 4 Matthias Clasen 2007-04-01 14:49:03 UTC
Putting this in NEEDINFO. Does this still cause problems ?

Comment 5 Pekka Pietikäinen 2007-04-01 15:29:14 UTC
Hmm. Don't remember seeing this problem for the last year or so. Don't have the
camera with me currently, so 100% double-checking isn't possible. Closing in any
case and I'll reopen if it still misbehaves.
