Description Mat 2005-01-10 14:06:12 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5)

Description of problem:
Connecting a Kodak 3400 digital camera - and it seems for other
models.  A user cannot retrieve files from the camera as a user in
FC3.  It will, however, work as root.

Someone posted a fix on the gphoto2 forums for FC3.  The file
/etc/hotplug/usb/usbcam file points to the wrong location for the
console lock file in FC3.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Gphoto2 - 2.1.4 and 2.1.5

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Tried 3 seperate installions across 3 machines of Fedora Core 3.
2. Tried in default install and also logged into gnome & updated to
latest updates
3. Plug camera ( Kodak 3400 ) using a usbcable in and cannot retrieve
photos as a user.  Will work fine as root.


Actual Results:  gthumb ( seperate problem ) gives a message "The
filesystem doesn't support getting file information" and hangs when
trying to import the photos.

console.  gphoto2 -P ( get all photos ) - gives an error message for a
user.  As root will download the images off the camera.

Expected Results:  It should work as a user.

Additional info:

After I applied the suggested workaround / fix.  I can now use gtkam
and digikam or console gphoto2 -P to download the photos.  gthumb
which is the default program for gnome is broken for the kodak 3400 it
seems and a seperate bug.

Please attach the usbcam script that you now have.

Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2005-01-11 09:01:50 UTC
This is functionally identical to the usbcam we actually ship.  Since you
mention 2.1.5 above, it seems you probably installed from source and overwrote
it using the upstream version, not our fixed version packaged in the RPM.
