GIMP: Could not mount Canon Digital Camera
Objective: To access raw photo image files from my Canon 400D digital camera, using a USB connection.
Result: GIMP (and UFRaw) produce the following error message:
Could not mount Canon Digital Camera
Error initialising camera: -1: Unspecified error
To explain my route to this error within GIMP, I went to FIle -> Open -> Canon Digital Camera, at which point it then hangs, eventually producing the above error within a popup message.
The exact same error is produced when trying to select the Canon Digital Camera when using UFRaw.
(Related is the fact that the RawTherapee application crashes when trying to select the camera device using its own folder list.)
I have searched for a solution of the above, but have only found that this problem may somehow be related to USB 3.0. If so, then this is a problem for me as I only have USB 3 (rather than USB 2) ports on my Asus UX31A.
