Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 591242
MTP plugin grabs PTP camera, blocking gphoto2
Last modified: 2011-12-20 16:45:47 EST
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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Rhythmbox.
2. Enable MTP plugin.
3. Connect PTP camera.
Rhythmbox grabs camera.
Rhythmbox ignores camera.
Still present in F13, rhythmbox-0.12.8-3.fc13.i686. Moreover, this plugin is enabled by default.
Still present in F14, rhythmbox-0.13.2-1.fc14.x86_64.

I believe this was fixed upstream (see upstream bug report)..

Same problem is still present in Fedora 16

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.
