I’m on Antergos Gnome 3.14.2, kernel 3.18-2-2-ARCH.
Shotwell and Digikam detect my Samsung S3 mobile but fail to import via either MTP or PTP. The S3 shows up in Nautilus File Manager OK and I can copy/paste, although that has been a bit flaky in the past.
Under PTP Digikam offers no error message, it just doesn’t do anything.
Under MTP Digikam offers the error message, "Failed to connect to the camera."
Shotwell (although I’m sure I had this working recently) does the same with the error message, “Unable to fetch previews from camera - could not claim USB device”.
If memory serves, Digikam imported fine on Ubuntu-Gnome 14.10 but that installation is currently in hiatus as I await a piece of hardware so I can’t double-check.
Has anyone got any solutions or come across problem before? I have kio-mtp, gvfs-gphoto2 & gvfs-mtp installed.
