The article talks about configuring hotplug in order to get cameras working. Hotplug is now deprecated, it should be hotplug-free and replaced by udev if possible. --Pholie 06:21, 12 January 2006 (EST)

Sorry, my last post (just deleting it!) was a load of rubbish - I must have had some other problem with the pixels... I looked at the PKGBUILD for libgphoto2 (should have thought of that sooner!), and this configuration stuff has now been converted into udev-ese (which I won't pretend to understand) and it seems to work out-of-the-package, without extra tweaking. I tried it with my Kodak and gthumb without the files in /etc/hotplug/usb and it worked. The install script creates a 'camera' group, so one is also relieved of this little job. I guess the result is that this wiki page is now redundant. Arch gets better all the time! Thanks maintainers!

I updated this article with how I have installed libgphoto2 and gphoto2/gtkam on the last 3 machines I have used it on. --Sjoden 01:58, 04 September 2007 (PST)
