digital picture question

Folks
I just bought a digital camera.
I cannot view the pictures in my computer.
Why?
I can view the pictures in the camera, so they are in fact in memory.
The owners manual has no instructions for Linux users (of course).

I used the Kooka viewer program, but it is not detecting the pictures.
The camera is a Sony DSC S500.

Re: digital picture question

Whenever I wanted to pull digital photos in linux, I always did it
from the command line. Navigated to the directory where I wanted the
pics & typed "gphoto2 -P".

Never tried Kooka. Digikam & f-Spot seemed to do ok, tho.

You might also want to do a little googling to make sure support for
your camera is available.

Re: digital picture question

Hey Lilli:o), Yeah, I have a Nikon and it would not read my camera 
either. What I would do is pull the memory card from the camera and put 
it in a card reader. It should be able to read it with then. And then 
you can transfer the pics to your puter. I also use GimpII to read my 
pics and edit them:o). It seems to work real well with Gimp.

Re: digital picture question

Lillian,

Yesterday I got my Fuji working using the directions on this site:

http://www.teaser.fr/~hfiguiere/linux/digicam.html

I don't see your particular model, but there's some specific Sony DSC 
S-series advice that may apply.

Re: digital picture question


I use gtkam and it reads many, many cameras.  You connected the camera
via USB, yes?

Ubuntu (Dapper) + Palm Tungsten E2

Can't seem to get my Palm Tungsten E2 to be recognized/sync with Ubuntu
jpilot/evolution.  I don't suppose there's a Palm Desktop for Gnome. 
I've tried Google - no luck;  any advice?

"gpilotd-control-applet" is installed by default on Dapper but the menu link is
disabled. It can be enabled in the "Alacarte Menu Editor" or run from a
terminal window.
