Fuji camera, no pop up

On leap 42.2, I am used to connecting the camera, and then I get a pop up what I want do do with the photo’s
Camera is connected through usb.

Nothing happens when I do the same on Leap 15.1. I am lost on how to fix this.

As the pop-up is typicaly something that the desktop does for you, it might be interestng to tell what DE you use.

Lol, KDE :slight_smile:

Might have found it,

Cheered to soon.
, but ls usb shows the camera.

Device 006 in this list

OK, but the crucial point is if it is recognised as mass-storage. As root do

journalctl -f

and then connect the device. That will generate messages. One of them should contain the word mass-storage. When not then there will be no device files created, let alone a signal will go to KDE to do the pop-up.

BTW, you can stop the journalctl with Ctrl-C.

These may also provide some useful information from a desktop perspective when connecting your device (have them running in advance)…

udevadm monitor
solid-hardware5 listen

BTW, if you have USB 3 and USB 2 ports on your system, try changing the port you’re connecting with and see if that changes the behaviour.

(Dumb question):wink: You have got “kio_kamera” installed ?

That would only apply to cameras supporting the PTP protocol, and from a quick search I’m not sure that this model does support that. It should appear as a mass storage device though. In any case, some more definitive output will help here.

I assumed the camera was behaving as mass-storage, bit indeed it is possible (though I do not know about this specific camera) that it uses PTP.

So, question to the OP: PTP or mass-storage?

BTW many cameras can switch between the two.

Didn’t see it in the list of PTP-supported devices
Also, a quick check of /usr/lib/udev/hwdb.d/20-gphoto.hwdb didn’t show it (although IIRC there is a helper udev rule than can add to that for devices that are detected as such).

So, question to the OP: PTP or mass-storage?

Yes, that and some output from the commands given.

I updated from 15.1 to tumbleweed, and now I get a pop up again, like on 42.3. :slight_smile:

It asks me if I want to download the photo’s with gwenview, or use file browser, just like I am used too.

In which case it sees it as mass-storage.

I think it will be too (but only because it’s not listed in libgphoto2 as a PTP-capable device), however, cameras detected/using PTP protocol will still be offered the same options in KDE. The options are listed as per System Settings > Removable Devices > Device Actions (for Camera)
