Thread: Problem mounting camera v13.1

  1. #1

    Default Problem mounting camera v13.1

    oS v13.1x64, KDE
    On same computer prior to install of v13.1 I was running v12.2 and no problem automounting usb devices. Now I can auto mount storage devices, both usb2 & usb3 but not other devices.

    My camera shows up in configure desktop->hardware->digital camera and if I click on test is is 'successful'. But it does not mount and device notifier shows "no devices available".

    dmesg:
    Code:
    [ 4522.733420] usb 1-1.1: USB disconnect, device number 19

    And fdisk -l does not show the camera.

    A thread from last year menioned fuse-gvfs

    The tail of mount contains:
    Code:
    gvfsd-fuse on /run/user/1000/gvfs type fuse.gvfsd-fuse (rw,nosuid,nodev,relatime,user_id=1000,group_id=100)
    gvfsd-fuse on /var/run/user/1000/gvfs type fuse.gvfsd-fuse (rw,nosuid,nodev,relatime,user_id=1000,group_id=100)
    fusectl on /sys/fs/fuse/connections type fusectl (rw,relatime)
    Since this camera mounted in v12.2 and also my iphone & ipad mounted using v12.2 but not now under v13.1. Also, running Apple in a virtual machine, my ipad mounts to Apple OS so there is some kind of communication between the usb devices and the machine.

    Since the camera is detected with lsusb and in device configuration I am left to believe there is something missing in my system regarding mounting devices.
    Any ideas?

    thanks, Jon

    Since you didn't have a problem with 12.2, you may have been caught out by a change in the default settings of /etc/usb_modeswitch.conf; try changing the line
    Code:
    DisableSwitching=0
    to
    Code:
    DisableSwitching=1
    and see if that works for you.

    Thanks for the reply, unfortunately that didn't work. I also see in that file that I can enable logging but since the device attaches (as indicated by the digital camera config) but does not mount I am not sure that the logging will be helpful.

    Rgds, Jon

    I note that your camera is reported as

    Code:
    [ 4534.777860] usb 1-1.1: Product: NIKON DSC COOLPIX S4300-PTP
    From the specs I read from here

    Nikon Coolpix 4300, four megapixel: Digital Photography Review

    it is mentioned

    Plug-and-play USB interface for smooth connection to a computer (USB Mass Storage Class or PTP)
    Maybe you need to adjust your camera settings for 'USB Storage Class' (or similar), so that it is detected accordingly.

    As things stand currently, Dolphin should also be able to communicate with the camera via 'Camera:/' (PTP protocol)

    I'll look into camera settings but I didn't change any and it worked fine in v12.2. I can also say that my camera, iPad, & iPhone were visible in Dolphin under 12.2 and not 13.1

    I need to investigate this Camera:/ as I am not familiar with that. Maybe that is what I need to get it fixed.

    Thanks, Jon

    The iPhone and iPad definitely do not get treated as storage devices, they utilize MTP/PTP (data transfer) protocols, but the notifier should work (as it does for me with openSUSE 12.2). I'm not sure what the notifier issue is with KDE in openSUSE 13.1, perhaps you've encountered a bug. The 'camera:/' (kamera-kio) for Dolphin should let you navigate the devices file systems (as if they were mounted as storage media), essentially disguising the fact that PTP communication protocol is really in use. Check that your notifier settings are set up as you'd expect (for removable devices).

    Another thought I had - is this a clean install, or upgrade from 12.2? You might want to make sure that udisks2 package is installed.

    Deano:

    This was an upgrade. udisk2 is installed, as is kio_camera & libgphoto2-6 (but not gphoto). If I can't get anywhere I'll install gphoto and see what happens but I hate to clutter up my system with software that I don't need.

    I'll play around with the device notifier settings, but I know that I had no issues in v12.2 with any of these devices and I don't recall ever needing to take any steps to get them working in v12.2, they just worked.

    And it's odd that the iPad is accessible in the Apple guest VM running on this machine.

    I don't see camera:/ anywhere in dolphin, I need to research what that means.

    Thanks for the suggestions,
    jon

    OK, camera:/ works. My Dolphin didn't have a location bar displayed and once I turned that one I could enter camera:/

    Oddly, it displays 2 instances for my camera, maybe that is because I tried usb3 once to see if that would work, even though I was sure it wouldn't.

    So I can now access my photo's from dolphin which is want I wanted to do to begin with. However, it still doesn't show in the device notifier like it did in v12.2

    Thanks for the help, I still need to play with the notifier settings.

    Deano:

    In device notifier this is what I have for Open with File Manager....Camera
    Code:
    kioclient exec camera:/
    The device property Suppoted Drivers must contain gphoto
    Type: Camera
    Value name: Supported Drivers
    Equals: gphoto
    OK, I can see how maybe =gphoto is messing me up. But what to change it to? I tried supported protocols contains PTP and that didn't work. But it's a start.
    Thanks, Jon
