Canon DSLR connection issue #45653
I am very happy to see that the indi driver for the Canon DSLR in the 3.3.7 release works reliably. The problem I am experiencing now is that when the camera is connected to the RPi, it is automatically mounted as a USB storage device which prevents SM from connecting to it. There is a short window of time after the physical connection is made in which the SM connection can be done. Does anyone know how to prevent the automatic mounting of the camera by the OS? I assume this is a Ubuntu issue.

Hi Ed,

This issue has been addressed many times om the forum. The solution is to install libgphoto2 from an additional ppa from Jasem. See for instance this comment

Thanks for the response. Now I recall the discussion about this...

When I execute:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mutlaqja...

I get:
sudo add-apt-repository: command not found

After I executed this command:
sudo apt-get install software-properties-common

Then the add-apt-repository command was successful.
But when I executed:
sudo apt-get install -y indi-libgphoto2

I get:
E: Unable to locate package indi-libgphoto2

Read the comment that I sent the link for again please. First you are adding the wrong ppa and then you are trying to install the wrong package.

You do not have permissions to access this page.
These are the instructions in the link:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mutlaqja/libgphoto2
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -y indi-libgphoto2
sudo apt-get update

I executed those commands.

What did I miss?

I apologize. I only now see that the instructions are incorrect. The correct sequence is

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mutlaqja/libgphoto2
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

The libgphoto2 package should then be replaced with the one from Jasem's ppa. Sorry once more!
