Description of problem:
On connecting my camera (Olympus Camedia C770), I am presented with two question dialogs:
There are photographs on this device.
Would you like to import these photographs into your photo album?
The second only appears after I have answered "import" to the first.
One appears to run "gthumb" and the other "gthumb-import" - this is the default behaviour it seems, since I haven't made changes in the Volume Manager program.
Furthermore, there are issues with the "gthumb-import" dialog that appears after answering "import" -
"An error occurred in the io-library ('Unsupported operation'): Camera is supported by USB Storage driver."
This text is listed just above the "okay" "cancel" buttons, the upshot is that this dialog won't do anything useful.
Cancelling it and answering "import" to the second dialog pulls up gthumb, and i can see thumbnails of my photos there.
Running "gthumb-import" from the CLI gives a little more detail:
"libhal.c 853 : org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.Disconnected raised
"Disconnected prior to receiving a reply""
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. plug in the camera,
2. watch those dialogs fly
Actual Results: gthumb-import doesn't work
Expected Results: gthumb import works fine
This is still an issue on FC4.
opened bug against gthumb - hope that wasn't a bone head idea.
i should also add that my email is b0rked atm, my mail server toasted itself,
should have it sorted soon. firstname.lastname@example.org is the best i can do
My guess is it is detecting both PTP and USB mass storage modes for your camera.
I won't be in the office for another week or so and will have a look at it
then. Can you attach the output of the lshal command. Thanks.
This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.
Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?
Fedora Core 4 is no longer maintained.
Setting status to "INSUFFICIENT_DATA". If you can reproduce this bug in the
current Fedora release, please reopen this bug and assign it to the
