However, depending on the specific revision version of the camera, there are slight differences. Problems are frequently reported regarding a usbdevfs bulk error / timeout:
Sep 4 15:38:03 titani kernel: hub.c: USB new device connect on bus2/1, assigned device number 6 Sep 4 15:38:03 titani kernel: usb.c: USB device 6 (vend/prod 0x4a9/0x3047) is not claimed by any active driver. Sep 4 15:38:19 titani kernel: usbdevfs: USBDEVFS_CONTROL failed dev 6 rqt 64 rq 4 len 80 ret -32 Sep 4 15:38:22 titani kernel: usb_control/bulk_msg: timeout Sep 4 15:38:22 titani kernel: usbdevfs: USBDEVFS_BULK failed dev 6 ep 0x81 len 156 ret -110In consequence of this error the camera is deregistered from the USB bus.
s10sh started as 40 lines of C code in order to understand why gphoto's canon driver did not work with my camera, but with some additional coding it became an hack that I used to download my photos, and finally a quite-usable software. I'm planning to merge this two GPLed driver in order to obtain a canon powershot lib, that join all the features and that will implement an easy-to-use API.So a merge of the libraries can be expected, but at the time of writing our specific camera only works with s10sh. You can find it under the above URL, compiling and installing the binary is simply following the steps in the readme. As for the gphoto-stuff, the libusb is needed.
The s10sh provides an interface to interactively navigate
through the contents of the cameras memory and to copy, remove, etc images.
This shell is like a plain ftp cleint.
The most usual actions are also available via command line options:
-u USB mode, default is serial mode -g non-interactive mode, get all images -l non-interactive mode, list all images -E non-interactive mode, delete all imagesExamples:
