Chandra, Markus: Hi All

First let's hope all addresses I use for this email are the correct
ones. Sorry if not.

I can confirm the solution mentioned by Chandra to comment out
lines like so:

#ATTRS{idVendor}=="07b4", ATTRS{idProduct}=="0109", MODE="0664", GROUP="plugdev

The line above (about 4 or 5 instances of it, IINM .. :) is here, on a
relatively fresh Debian/unstable in:

There's also a link to that file:

$ ls -l  /etc/udev/rules.d/025_libgphoto2.rules 
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 19 Apr  7  2006 /etc/udev/rules.d/025_libgphoto2.rules -> ../libgphoto2.rules

The camera here is an Olympus C370Z. 

Before that solution, /dev/sda1, which is the xd picture card in
the device, could not be started/attached to the system since quite a
few days in KDE. sda1 *could* be seen in FVWM tho', IIRC ...  and I'm
not sure whether FVWM uses the triggers in /etc/udev.d/ ...

I'm not sure, but i think the camera was much easier attached to the
computer, in KDE, many months ago (i.e. a year ago, or so?) when being
plugged in - without rewriting /etc/udev/libgphoto2.rules.

The computer is a Powerbook5,8 (aka alubook5,8)

The system here, as already mentioned, is Debian/unstable, last full
software update for most packages was done today.

KDE version: Release 3.5.9
udev: 114, as it seems
Kernel: 2.6.26-rc5

Thanks a lot to Markus Meissner and Chandra Chandrasekhar: Good work,
fine solution.

Please let me know if you need more information.

Best Regards
