(Nearly-new Ubuntu user here.)
What is the best way to connect my Nikon D800 to Ubuntu?
When I plug the USB cable into the computer, I get an error message saying
Unable to mount NIKON DSC D800 Error initializing camera: -60: Could not lock the device.
If I run lsusb, I get the following line:
Bus 002 Device 012: ID 04b0:042a Nikon Corp.
And if I launch the "Home Folder", I do see the camera listed under "Devices", and I can open the folders and see icons for the images, but they only load as thumbnails (they are RAW images).
I want to have Darktable directly import them, as it does perfectly with my Olympus E-PL2 camera. But Darktable insists that no supported devices were found.
The Nikon uses the MTP/PTP USB transfer method, while the Olympus uses mass storage. (I don't see any method for switching the Nikon to use mass storage).
Is there a way to get this to work? Thank you much!
