I'm having a problem with F-Spot not seeing my Nikon D40. I'm using 11.1 64-bit, and KDE 4.1.

When I plug in the camera (USB), the Device Notifier pops up and says the camera is connected, correctly identifying it as a D40. digiKam has no trouble recognising the camera and copying files from it to my system. However, when I fire up F-Spot (0.5.0.3), although the program starts normally, the Import Source dropdown shows "No camera detected".

I would very much like to use F-Spot as this seems closest to Adobe Lightroom that I've used under Windows.

Does anyone have any clue as to why this might not be working? I have searched, but have found no tips that solve the problem.

Many thanks in advance.
