           Summary: digikam can't connect to camera in PTP mode
           Product: digikam
           Version: 0.9.1
          Platform: SuSE RPMs
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: digikam-devel kde org
        ReportedBy: achim luecking-brothers de

Version:           0.9.1 (using KDE KDE 3.5.7)
Installed from:    SuSE RPMs
OS:                Linux

Using my Canon EOS 350D in PTP mode I got the following problem:

The camera is recognized, but if digikam tries to connect to the camera for downloading the pictures, an error occurs, that digikam can't connect to camera.

If I use gphoto2 directly from console, there ist no problem, all pictures are listed correctly. After initializing the camera from console using gphoto2 -l or gphoto -L, digikam is also able to connect and lists the pictures correctly.

This is very confusing, it seems to me, that something during the initialization procedure of the camera fails, if digikam has to initialize the camera. If the camera is initialized, everything works fine.

Installed libgphoto2 is i586
