did you install libgphoto2?
Also, did you run [code:1qzfr9fa]lsusb[/code:1qzfr9fa] just to see?
What about having install gphotofs. Supposedly, this file can be used to mount your camera as a filesystem on Linux.
I got both of those informations from the ARch Wiki as well as the other link as well.
I was reading on the Arch Wiki that if your camera is not present, then maybe a udev rule needs to be written for it. But you need to check the vender as well as any product ID for your camera by 1st running the ‘lsusb’ command mentioned above.
Also, is the camera that you own listed in this page here:
This is the official list of cameras that libgphoto2 supports.
Perhaps someone with more skill and knowledge would also be able to make a contribution to this post as well.
