Description Kare Nuorteva 2005-08-20 09:05:28 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050720 Fedora/1.0.6-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.6

Description of problem:
When connecting a camera with a USB cable, the gthumb doesn't start to import images. This works correctly on x86 platform.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect camera
2. Nothing happens
3. Run gthumb-import manually
4. gthumb displays error message


Actual Results:  No images were imported from the camera

Expected Results:  OS should have prompted if the user wishes to import images and image import should run successfully.

Additional info:

When I run gthumb-import manually, I get the following errors on the terminal:
[kare@triton ~]$ gthumb-import
5255: arguments to dbus_message_new_method_call() were incorrect, assertion "_dbus_check_is_valid_path (path)" failed in file dbus-message.c line 796.
This is normally a bug in some application using the D-BUS library.

Gthumb window reports following error message:
An error occurred in the io-library ('Bad parameters'): Could not find USB device (vendor 0x4a9, product 0x30ef). Make sure this device is connected to the computer.
Also, gthumb doesn't recognize the camera make or model.

When camera is connected, the following messages appear on /var/log/messages:

Comment 1 John (J5) Palmieri 2005-08-22 11:37:50 EDT
Is this camera supported by gPhoto?

Thanks for the bug report.  At the moment, the Fedora developers don't have
time to work on this particular issue. The best way to make sure your problem
will get looked on is to report it to the authors of the program. Most 
upstream authors use a bug tracking system like bugzilla, and more people
who know the code will be looking at the bug report there.

The upstream bug tracking system to use is:


Please make sure the bug isn't already in the upstream bug tracker before
filing it.
Comment 2 Kare Nuorteva 2005-08-22 17:07:55 EDT
It seems to work after I changed camera setting "Communication" from "PC
Connection" to "PTP/Print".
