gphoto will need the port device. see usage at
I managed to get the device from /var/log/messages when I switched on the
camera. Mine is a kodak dc280. It looked like :-
kernel: dc2xx.c: USB Camera #0 connected, major/minor 180/80
Once you have the major & minor numbers you should be able to go to
/dev/usb and find your device file. Mine looked like :-
crw------- 1 robj root 180, 80 Aug 30 2001 dc2xx0
gtkam is just a fromt end for gphoto so no doubt there fill be a field for
the port device. There is on the gphoto GUI.
Hope this helps.
