Description of problem:
The g-v-m only recognizes my Casio EX-Z40 when in usb mass storage
mode; in this case it happily starts gthumb - although gthumb can't
copy with a mass storage device as it seems. Anyway, gthumb works
beautifully when the camera is in PTP mode - unfortuately, in this
case, g-v-m does not start gthumb :-(
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. plugin camera in PTP mode
3. wait longer.
Actual Results: The usb stack recognices the camera (hal-monitor also
sees it), but g-v-m doesn't start gthumb
Expected Results: start gthumb
Can you please attach the output of lshal with your camera in both ptp
and mass storage mode. Thanks.

There seems to be a patch to fix this. Once freedesktop.org is back
up I'm told it will be commited and we will release a new HAL into
rawhide. If all goes well the patch will be backported to an FC3
update. I will post here once it is in rawhide and ask you to try it
out to confirm that it fixes your problem. Reassiging to HAL.
Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.
Closing per lack of response to previous request for information.
This bug was originally filed against a much earlier version of Fedora
Core, and significant changes have taken place since the last version
for which this bug is confirmed.
Note that FC3 and FC4 are supported by Fedora Legacy for security
fixes only. Please install a still supported version and retest. If
it still occurs on FC5 or FC6, please reopen and assign to the correct
version. Otherwise, if this a security issue, please change the
product to Fedora Legacy. Thanks, and we are sorry that we did not
get to this bug earlier.
