When I select my Sony DSC-P10 (PTP or Normal mode) in digiKam's Camera 
drop down I get this:
"Failed to connect to camera. Please make sure its connected properly 
and turned on. Would you like to try again?"
I'm reasonably sure that it's connected properly having followed my Sony 
manual instructions.  The blue viewing screen shows USB Mode NORMAL or 
PTP(whichever I select in the setup menu) with the four red dots that 
quickly turn to white shortly after turning on the camera.  DigiKam 
didn't autodetect my camera but I found it listed in the db file and 
selected it from the Add Camera list.  I read all the related manuals 
and the set up info in all the "refered to" configuration files.  
Nothing works.  I'm bewildered at how many configuration files for 
different programs that is required to set up digiKam.  At least my 
scanner works as I'm able to scan from it and place the image in my 
Album->Pictures file.  However, I'm not able to use the memory card 
reader to download images from the memory stick.  I would like to use my 
Epson Stylus CX6400 memory card reader to download images from the 
camera but haven't seen any reference to it.
I'm reasonably sure this is all some Debian setup issue but can't figure 
it out myself after reading manuals and all instructions in the various 
configuration files.  I'm still a newbie with Debian and Linux in 
general and definately would appreciate any help getting my camera 
images downloaded.  I didn't include any setup/configuration files as 
there are so many; please request what is pertinent and I'll transmit 
them.  Please copy my email address on any replys as I'm not 
subscribed(I'll monitor the list but it's easier to reply if you cc my 
email address).
Thanks for your consideration and help,
