Is there a reason I can't get the Canon T6 to work with the Canon driver but it will work with the Gphoto driver? I am new to Stellarmate and I am trying to follow the tutorials on getting it set up.

Thanks!

Regards,
Richard

We use a library called libgphoto2 to control these camera, and we query the camera name from libgphoto2. If the library returns something like "PTP USB Camera", then we cannot use it in the Canon driver. At any rate, they're both the same exact driver, the only difference is the name of the driver.

Can you open the Mate Terminal and type this:
sudo apt-get -y install gphoto2

Then enter your password (smate), then after installation is done, run this:
gphoto2 --summary

and
lsusb

Maybe we can share the output with the libgphoto2 folks so they can add this camera name explicitly.

Thanks!! I sent a pull-request to libgphoto2 here: github.com/gphoto/libgphoto2/pull/389

SO once they merge this and when I build libgphoto2 next, it should be recognized!

There is another user with the exact same issue with Canon T5i, I will ask him as well to try submitting the information here. I'll keep this post sticky.
