I have a kodak digit camera that always has just mounted. Since 14.04, it shows the device itself in
lsusb. Looking in
syslog I see it recognizes the camera but then fails saying the device is not an
mtp. The exact log entries are:
May 9 21:57:12 davelaptop kernel: [ 1733.117649] usb 3-3: new full-speed USB device number 3 using ohci-pci May 9 21:57:12 davelaptop kernel: [ 1733.316743] usb 3-3: New USB device found, idVendor=040a, idProduct=05d1 May 9 21:57:12 davelaptop kernel: [ 1733.316760] usb 3-3: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3 May 9 21:57:12 davelaptop kernel: [ 1733.316769] usb 3-3: Product: KODAK EASYSHARE C182 Digital Camera May 9 21:57:12 davelaptop kernel: [ 1733.316778] usb 3-3: Manufacturer: Eastman Kodak Company May 9 21:57:12 davelaptop kernel: [ 1733.316785] usb 3-3: SerialNumber: C182 020552828 May 9 21:57:12 davelaptop mtp-probe: checking bus 3, device 3: "/sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:12.0/usb3/3-3" May 9 21:57:12 davelaptop mtp-probe: bus: 3, device: 3 was not an MTP device May 9 21:57:12 davelaptop colord: Device added: sysfs-(null)
I also checked in
udev and found some entries in hwdb folder about gphoto. It did not have my camera listed. I added it to 2 such rules files in that folder but it still doesn't mount.
My thought - I think something changed in
udev and is messing this up. I know there is a process there about probing
mtp - perhaps that is failing also/instead?
I see this is not a unique problem. There are lots of posts here and in the ubuntu forums about cameras not mounting. Something is in common - some change from 13.10 to 14.04 is in common.
