in the latest Debian stable release (8.2) I get an error message when 
connecting my camera and when I use the "Available devices" system tray icon 
to "Download photos with digikam":

The specified camera 
is not supported.

Surprisingly, it works flawless, when I use inside digikam the Import->Cameras-
>USB PTP Camera Class or even Import->Cameras->Canon Inc. Canon Digital camera 

lsusb reveals the camera on usb bus 1, device 006. The error message seems to 
imply that for whatever reason digikam tries to open device number 4 on bus 1.

rd at Silberkiste:~$ lsusb
Bus 001 Device 006: ID 04a9:322c Canon, Inc. 
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 04b8:0103 Seiko Epson Corp. GT-6600U [Perfection 610]
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
rd at Silberkiste:~$ 

Any idea how to fix the system tray entry would be very welcome.
