Cannot mount USB Mass Storage Device in Canon Compact Camera and USB External Harddisks in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

Hi,

Recently I helped my friend assemble his desktop computer. His 
motherboard is the Asus H97 Pro. I installed Ubuntu 14.04 LTS on his 
desktop computer.

Then I tried to plug in his Canon compact camera using a USB cable. 
Executing "dmesg" shows that the Canon compact camera was detected. But 
Ubuntu is unable to mount the USB mass storage device in the Canon 
compact camera.

Subsequently, I tried to plug in his USB external harddisk. Executing 
"dmesg" again shows that the USB external harddisk was detected, but 
Ubuntu cannot mount the USB mass storage device.

Is this a Ubuntu 14.04 LTS bug? Because my friend told me he can mount 
the Canon compact camera and USB external harddisk in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.

Perhaps his motherboard is too new? It's using the Intel H97 chipset.

Thank you.

Connecting USB scanners and printers to a wireless network

I don't know if this is the right place to ask these questions. If not 
perhaps some one could point me in the right direction

I have four laptops running ubuntu 14.04.  connected to my wireless 
network. The router has four ethernet ports.
I have four periperals which I wish to make available on the wireless 
network.
1. Samsung CPL-320n - This connects directly to one of the ports on my 
router and can be used by all four laptops.
2. Brother HL2130 laser printer. This only has a usb port.
3 Epsom XP-100 printer/scanner. Only has usb port
4 Epson 3490 photo scanner. This only has a usb port.

I need the printer function of the xp100 and the HL2130 available on the 
wireless network.
  I have been give two netgear PS121-V2 print servers.

I have no information on them. Googling gives me the distinct impression 
that they are windows devices. I have connected one to an ethernet port 
but the laptops do not see it. Do I need drivers for these devices? Can 
they be used with linux machines?

Thanks for any advice or help.

Regards

Duplicated syslog message

Hello guys,

Just writing in case any of you can explain a weird duplicated log entry 
in my syslog file.

Yesterday as usual rsyslog ran and appended the line
Sep 15 13:55:45 <hostname> rsyslogd: [origin software="rsyslogd" 
swVersion="7.4.4" x-pid="601" x-info="http://www.rsyslog.com"] rsyslogd 
was HUPed

To the log file and swapped out the file as usual.

The next day when I turned on the computer I found these 3 lines at the 
point the computer had shut down the previous day:
Sep 15 13:55:45 <hostname> rsyslogd: [origin software="rsyslogd" 
swVersion="7.4.4" x-pid="601" x-info="http://www.rsyslog.com"] rsyslogd 
was HUPed
Sep 15 23:50:50 <hostname> rsyslogd: [origin software="rsyslogd" 
swVersion="7.4.4" x-pid="601" x-info="http://www.rsyslog.com"] exiting 
on signal 15.
Sep 16 13:48:08 <hostname> rsyslogd: [origin software="rsyslogd" 
swVersion="7.4.4" x-pid="583" x-info="http://www.rsyslog.com"] start

As you see the first entry is the exact same as the previous entry with 
the same time stamp, but it got appended to the log file just before the 
computer was shut down.
What could have caused that?

< rant >

I have to ask, why on earth would anyone do any on-line banking?  I do everything by phone, in person or snail
mail and haven't had any issues.  Maybe because I'm a programmer, I can spot the cr*p that gets written and
pushed out there.  Do you want your money and info spread around out there?  And it seems, I'm vindicated
every couple of weeks with this or that system being compromised.

The other day, I wanted to sign up for an on-line newspaper.  It was free, but you could only get the content if
you were logged in with your Facebook account.  Seriously?  When I complained, the girl on the phone told me
that a lot of people hate this.  They are now working on changes.

If people complained about and refused to use this garbage software, maybe companies would stop using
things like Flash and ActiveX.  They don't even work very well on iOS or Android phones and tablets.  And
that's where the big, all important, demo hangs out.

Colin, Yes I know but it shows that the system is still not quite OK.
I followed your suggestions and it gave a normal result:

Recognizing Galaxy S4

Up until yesterday morning when I plugged my Galaxy S4 into my 14.04 LTS
box the popup would come up asking if I wanted to open in Shotwell or
Eject. I of course would just click the large X in the upper right
corner as I'd open it with Nautilus and select certain photos to open.
Sometime during the afternoon yesterday this stopped and when opening
Nautilus it was not shown as a device. After much fiddling around I did
get it to show up on Nautilus however it appeared to be unmounted. From
my syslog just now:

chkrootkit "The tty of the following user process(es) were not found"

Whenever I have jobs running overnight in screen while I'm logged out,
I get things like the lines below in the chkrootkit output e-mails
(plus the commands running in the screen shells).  Sometimes they
include commands with passwords as arguments --- obviously not a good
thing.  I've never seen one that I didn't expect, apart from the
strange /usr/bin/X thing, which sometimes appears as keeps appearing
until the next reboot.  Is there any way to suppress them?

Thanks,
Adam

MR,
Thanks for your suggestion. However, looking at the additional drivers 
the menu says:
No proprietary drivers are is in use, but 304.123 is indicated (in the 
list) and when I start ¨NVIDIA X Server Settings¨ it says the runnung 
server is 304.123 so I think the additional drivers tag has a bug as it 
also won´t load the driver 340.32 although it correctly is signalled in 
the list but when I select it and press apply it starts (something) and 
then stops. I can then cancel it and no problems arise.
