Import photos fails to launch when canon 350D camera connected via USB
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:25 EST
Description of problem:
In FC4 the import photos dialog would launch automatically when connecting a
Cannon 350D camera via a USB cable. It does not launch with FC5t3. I am able
to start gthumb manually and then import photos. However, once while starting
manually, I found that gthumb could not gain access to the camera. Sorry I
didn't write that one down.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. plugin camera
2. turn camera on
have to launch gthumb manually
gthumb's import photos launch automatically as in FC4
This might be related to bug 182039
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.
Still works like this after gthumb update 04-05-06... and all other updates current.
This was a mistake on my part. Did the removable drives preferences must have
changed default values? I don't remember every looking at thost preferences
when I was using FC4. In fact I didn't even know cameras were in there.
I setup my preferences and everything worked fine.
