In Lubuntu 12.04, what is the best method to upload pics from my Canon Powershot A520-A510 camera? Do I need to install an app? If so, which app do you recommend. I am new to Linux, and presently settled on Lubuntu.
First, I would install the lightweight photo manager called gThumb. You can install it by pasting the following code into your terminal.
Second, you will need to connect your camera to the computer. There are a few ways to do this, depending on your camera.
You should see a pop-up that appears after you complete the connection above. Chose the gThumb option.
Finally, follow the import steps/options given by gThumb. Be sure your folder destination is your
If you did not see a popup when you connected your camera, the alternative way is to open gThumb and chose the import option (File -> Import From -> Removable Device)
You will again have upload options.
Finally, there are other options instead of gThumb that you may like. Here are four more standard options. I like gThumb because it fits Lubuntu's philosophy: (1) Lightweight and (2) Minimalist.
Enjoy your photos!
