5.3.1:     How to set up a camera

In most cases MEPIS Linux will add a camera automatically:

  1. Switch on your camera in 'play' mode and connect it to your computer.
  2. A camera or USB Imaging icon should appear on the desktop.
  3. A dialog box will open, asking you what you want to do with the new medium that has been detected. Choose whether to open in a new window or have Digikam upload the photos.
  4. If you do not see the dialog box, you can click Kmenu --> Graphics --> digiKam
  5. On the menu bar, click Camera --> Add camera --> Auto detect
  6. Digikam will normally detect and list your camera.
