Comment 1 David Brownell 2005-09-11 15:29:44 UTC
I heard that this is fixed in current versions of gphoto.
If not, bug them for the fix.

(This is a dup of some other bug, fwiw.)
Comment 2 Greg Kroah-Hartman 2005-09-12 14:17:56 UTC
Yes, this is a userspace issue, just update gphoto and it should work properly.

Sorry, I don't remember the other bug number, but it is a previous one...
