Description James Ettle 2010-05-11 17:51:19 UTC
Description of problem:
When the MTP plugin is enabled, Rhythmbox will grab the USB device for a PTP camera before gvfs's gphoto2 component has the chance. This blocks gphoto2 rendering the camera inaccessible until Rhythmbox's MTP plugin is disabled.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Rhythmbox.
2. Enable MTP plugin.
3. Connect PTP camera.
Actual results:
Rhythmbox grabs camera.

Expected results:
Rhythmbox ignores camera.

Still present in F13, rhythmbox-0.12.8-3.fc13.i686. Moreover, this plugin is enabled by default.

Seems fixed for me with rhythmbox-2.90.1-17.git20110927.fc16.x86_64 , Gert can you confirm before I close this?

It will start shotwell and shotwell sees my camera, however shotwell will fail with "Uable to fetch previes from the camera: Unspecified error (-1)".
(see also bug 755299).

A quick experiment shows, that the mtp plugin does not give any problems, these problems appear to be caused by the iPod plugin. 

Looks like a different problem, so I think this bug can be closed. I will open a new one for the iPod plugin problem.
