[K12OSN] Digital camera on ltsp-terminals

Has anyone got this going? I can get most cameras going by using the  
smb approach from ltsp.org's wiki. This works for the cameras using  
usb-storage to send its data. Then the camera shows up on the  
terminal as an ordinary usb-drive/stick.

However, several of our schools have gone out and bought themselves  
Canon Ixus cameras. These, off course, do not use the usb-storage  
driver and thererfore they do not show up as a usb-drive. When I plug  
this camera into my laptop, I have to use Digikam or gphoto/gtkcam to  
access its content.

Is there a way to make an ltsp-terminal use this camera? Would a  
memorycard reader do the trick? I have tried one, and it didn't work.  
It showed up as a zero byte file. Even if I inserted the card into  
the reader before plugging it in. Off course this could be my reader  
being bad. Has anyone gotten this to work? I have a lot of students  
and teacher waiting to use their cameras on the terminals...
