Cannot download anymore fotos from Coolpix S6200 with Digikam 3

Digikam 3.0.0 with Nikon Coolpix S6200 does not work anymore with opensuse 12.3
On Opensuse 12.1 Digilam 2.2 does work nice.
In the new version the camera is listed below Import/camera as
Nikon Nikon DSC COOLPIX S6200-PTP (Autodetected)
but download of fotos is impossible. Therer is no action/no download window…

With filemanager the cam can be openend and access of the pics is possible,
With gwenview the same
The only problem seems to be digikam…

Output of messages for cam
usb 2-1.2: new high-speed USB device number 6 using ehci_hcd
usb 2-1.2: New USB device found, idVendor=04b0, idProduct=0326
usb 2-1.2: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3
usb 2-1.2: Product: NIKON DSC COOLPIX S6200-PTP usb 2-1.2: Manufacturer: NIKON
usb 2-1.2: SerialNumber: 0

Any idea hints?

You may need to file a bug report for this. I’m not sure if this is a KDE (digikam) issue, or a possible regression with gphoto2/libgphoto2…

Same here, but I put an ptp-Device manually and my Camera works with this.

Look in /var/log/messages and see if the camara was disconnected after usb_modeswitch was run. If so, edit /etc/usb_modeswitch.conf by changing the line:

DisableSwitching=0

to

DisableSwitching=1

This disables usb_modeswitch.
Obviously, if this does not work, change it back and look elsewhere for a solution.

Modifying /etc/usb_modeswitch.conf does not work.
Tried to add camera manualy as noted and the camera is not listed!!
Only the S6000 but this does not work. S6200 is not in list.
I cannot boot my old system at the moment to look if the cam is listed in old version…
Later I will do it and post the result …

Otherwise read the following:

gPhoto - Projects :: libgphoto2 :: supported cameras

To report a not yet supported camera to the gphoto development team follow the instructions below:

  • If it a USB mass storage based camera (appearing like a USB stick or USB drive) it is mounted by your operating system and not gphoto2. In this case a report to us is not necessary.
  • Record the output of lsusb to get the USB ids.
  • Record the output of gphoto2 --auto-detect to see if it is detected in a generic way, or by another name. If it is detected already, run the steps below:
  • Record the output of LANG=C gphoto2 --summary >summary.txt to get generic summary information into the summary.txt file.
  • Record the output of LANG=C gphoto2 --list-all-config >config.txt to get the configuration tree into the config.txt file.
  • Record the output of gphoto2 --capture-image to see if capture works already.

Mail the output results with the camera name to gphoto-devel@lists.sourceforge.net. Please note that PTP cameras will already work out of the box, including special vendor features if we already implemented them.

Tried to add camera manualy as noted and the camera is not listed!!
Only the S6000 but this does not work. S6200 is not in list.

In Digikam I added an second device, but I haven`t sarched for my Camera, only for an ptp-Device and added this one. After that, my Camera was recognized as PTP-Camera automatically.

Yes, that’s a worth a try. It should function using generic PTP connectivity.

FYI: Digikam 3.1.0 recognize again the S6200!

That’s good to know :slight_smile:
