It's really strange because on my previous installs on the same PC, of Ubuntu 16.04, as soon as I connected the camera, it was detected. Very quickly in fact.

On my latest install of this OS though, nothing.
Here's the output from the lusb command:

Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 007 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 006 Device 003: ID 046d:c016 Logitech, Inc. Optical Wheel Mouse
Bus 006 Device 002: ID 413c:2107 Dell Computer Corp. 
Bus 006 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 04b0:017e Nikon Corp. 
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub

As you can see the camera is there. But it's simply missing from File explorer.

You could play with the 'gphoto2' to see if the camera is supported. See if is recognized at all try:

gphoto2 --auto-detect

More specifics on camera model would help. 04b0:017e Doesn't seem to bring anything up for that usb device id.
