Question about Olympus Camedia C-2100 Ultra Zoom Digital Camera

1 Answer

Software/drivers I run a Ubuntu/Kubuntu Linux PC, no Windows, no Mac and I need to be able to get linux-compatible software to use with my C 2100 Ultra Zoom. Just got the camera recently and am still learning to use it, am having issues downloading the pix from the card to my computer.

    You shouldn't need a driver. If you plug the camera in and it says connected then linux has mounted your camera's storage media. One of the hard things in Linux is finding out where the device is once linux has mounted it. It's easy with Ubuntu since automounts are automatically placed on the desktop but that's not the case in all linux brands. Start with the root directory and move up checking for where your camera could be mounted. It's probably under /usb or /mnt. If you can't find it, let me know and I'll look it up for you. You need to tell me what linux your using though.

No driver is neccessary. When you plug the camera into the USB port, Ubuntu should automatically mount the camera. If not, Open a command prompt and type the following command and post the output here:

dmesg | tail

You say you're running Ubuntu/Kubuntu. Which on are you using? Kubuntu uses the KDE desktop rather than GNOME, the default for Ubuntu. The user interface is different.

If the camera is mounted as it should be, it would be mounted under /media (Usually /media/disk), and that directory would contain all your pictures.

Linux does not always have drivers for these types of devices. Your best bet is to either search for these drivers individually, or to go to a different Linux Distribution (Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Puppy Linux, Debian, etc...) Also, make sure that your current version is updated (Apt-get update and Apt-get upgrade are great commands!)

Linux Ubuntu is fully automated. It is backward compatible with old hardware. You should have no problem installing and using it.

It will look for any drivers it needs. It has a vast repository of drivers and software. I have run it on a variety of machines and virtual machines with no problems.
