Thanks for your help. I've been out all day today and will not get a chance to try this until tomorrow evening at the earliest.
No problem. The updates to gphoto2 and libgphoto2 have been sitting in testing for a while. They work for me, but that doesn't mean that they work for everyone, so having you test them is very useful....
It was the libtool library that I downgraded.
Ok, wasn't sure from your last message.
The cameras are both ptp. I only have one to test now (F40fd). The other went of the university with my daughter - hence why I have been out today - 325 miles round trip!
Right. That removes one more variable - libgphoto2 handles both ptp and mass storage, and I have seen circumstances where it would handle ptp but not mass storage.
That's quite a trip - I guess she won't be visiting too often...
Should I put the new libtool lib back in place before I try your new libgphoto2?
Urk. No, please don't do that. It has a few problems, and from a message Caitlyn left earlier, I think it is being pulled.
I've had a try at building it myself since the problem arose, and so far I've failed to get it to work properly. Looks like it needs someone with more knowledge than I have to get a working build.
I've just built gphoto2 and libgphoto2 for VL 6.0. They both work here, but whether they will work in the wild is a different matter. I've also just tried to build Gtkam under VL 6.0, but that has failed - a dependency library it has isn't in the current repo and I can't get it to build. What fun....
Anyhow, good luck with the new libgphoto2 build.
