Mandriva: Updated libgphoto packages fixes issue with some cameras Print E-mail
User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Mandrake The hotplug usermap has been restored for this package because it is used by HAL to correctly detect digital cameras which are not using USB Mass storage (for instance, all Canon digital cameras, as well as some Nikon ones and all PTP cameras). This should allow gnome-volume-manager to automatically popup a "Do you want to import photos?" dialog when the camera is plugged in.
