When I plug in in my digital camera (Fuji F100fd), Nautilus automounts it as 'USB PTP Camera' with the path 'gphoto2://[usb:001,007]/'.

lsusb lists it as Bus 001 Device 007: ID 04cd:02ef Fuji Photo Film Co., Ltd

dmesg says usb 1-3: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 7

How can I mount it from the command line (not running GNOME/X)?

I suppose you mean from the commandline while you are not in GNOME?

You can use gphotofs Install gphotofs for that.

Thanks, that's what I was looking for. Maybe it's worth mentioning its limitations: "GPhotoFS currently can't add or remove directories, rename files or directories, add or modify files and get space information." – htorque Oct 30 '10 at 16:58
