I have a Canon PowerShot A60 digital camera which in previous releases
used to work with FC without having to do any configuration.
Specifically, I would connect the camera to the usb port, turn it on, and
gthumb-import would pop up and download the images.
In F8 (and late FC7) gthumb-import would still pop-up, but I would get
an error like this:
"An error occurred in the io-library ('Could not claim the USB device')"
After a google search I figured I had to generate a file
./print-camera-list udev-rules version 0.98 mode 644 owner root group
users > /etc/udev/rules.d/90-libgphoto2.rules
That is, I'm using udev with the camera. Running ./print-camera-list with
no arguments shows I could have produced a fdi file for hal, and perhaps
What is the preferred method, udev or hal? Does it matter? And why is it
not enabled by default? I'm surprised I haven't seen other people mention
