Thread: gphoto2 fails after update to 13.1

    Default gphoto2 fails after update to 13.1

    I've long used gphoto2 to transfer images from my digital camera to computer. However, I upgraded to opensuse 13.1 some time back, and when I went to transfer some images today, the gphoto2 app was missing, even though the libgphoto2 package was installed. (And is all that yast finds in a search for gphoto2.)

    I found the source, compiled it, and it apparently runs, it just doesn't recognize my camera any longer. The camera is there, and is seen by the USB subsystem. dmesg gives this:
    Code:
    [ 3041.775253] usb 1-4.1.3: new high-speed USB device number 11 using ehci-pci
    [ 3041.862749] usb 1-4.1.3: New USB device found, idVendor=04a9, idProduct=3227
    [ 3041.862759] usb 1-4.1.3: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3
    [ 3041.862766] usb 1-4.1.3: Product: Canon Digital Camera
    [ 3041.862772] usb 1-4.1.3: Manufacturer: Canon Inc.
    but "gphoto2 --auto-detect" shows no cameras.

    Anyone know of a way to get image download to work? Doesn't have to be gphoto2, though I'm familiar with that, it just has to work.

    Camera is a Canon ELPH 100HS, aka IXUS 115 HS. I use the FVWM2 window manager, so KDE/Gnome specific solutions aren't going to be much help.

    Thanks,
    James

    No need to compile from source. It's available as a RPM package. You need to install 'gphoto' eg
    Code:
    zypper in gphoto
    The camera is there, and is seen by the USB subsystem. dmesg gives this:
    Code:
    [ 3041.775253] usb 1-4.1.3: new high-speed USB device number 11 using ehci-pci
    [ 3041.862749] usb 1-4.1.3: New USB device found, idVendor=04a9, idProduct=3227

    [ 3041.862772] usb 1-4.1.3: Manufacturer: Canon Inc.
    That output looks okay to me.

    And when I search for 'gphoto' in Yast, there it is. Now am I the stupid one, or is it whoever listed a package containing 'gphoto2' as 'gphoto'?

    Unfortunately, when I installed the official version, I still get the same problem of not being able to detect the camera :-( Maybe I need to see if gphoto2 has a user forum...

    That's odd. It should still be picked up as a generic PTP device IIRC. Make certain that your camera is in the right mode for PTP connectivity.

    What happens if you just try to issue
    Code:
    gphoto2 --list-files
    If you really get stuck, you should be able to obtain help from here:

    AFAIK, the camera doesn't have any way to change modes. The PTP (I think that's right: USB protocol, but doesn't look like a disk) is the only option.

    What happens if you just try to issue
    Code:
    gphoto2 --list-files
    I get this:
    Code:
    gphoto2 --list-files
    failed to scan for addr in                                                     
    *** Error: No camera found. ***
    plus a bunch of info on creating debug logs, which I've done but don't understand. Anyway, thanks for the links. I'll give them a try.
