Last modified: 2013-03-13 00:49:14 EDT
Description of problem:
gthumb appears to not have permissions to access USB camera.
Camera can be read by gphoto2, but only if run as root.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.plug in Canon PowerShot Pro1 USB cable.
An error occurred in the io-library ('Could not claim the USB device'): Could
not claim interface 0 (Operation not permitted). Make sure no other program or
kernel module (such as sdc2xx, stv680, spca50x) is using the device and you have
read/write access to the device.
Why is there no response from the packager, the developer, or QA on this bug?
Not even a request for more info!
USB cameras on Fedora have been broken for months now. If someone needs help
fixing this a good place to start migt be by responding to bugs like this with
some indication of where the problem lies.
Sorry, for the long wait but I have been busy with a slew of other things. The
problem is currently being fixed but may be low in the queue. The problem is
permissions aren't being set correctly in /proc when a camera is added. A quick
fix would be to set the permissions of your device in /proc/bus/usb to your user
and group when you plug in the camera. Please be patient as this will be fixed
before we release fc5 and most likely before we release test1.
Fix for this is gphoto2-1.1.6-6 + patch from Bug# 150985 comment #16
So this is fixed in rawhide then, right ? If not, please reopen.
I still have this problem with my Canon EOS 300D (gphoto2-2.1.99-8,
