Configuring libgphoto2 with libptp2

The following instructions explain how to change permissions to used libgphoto2 with Libptp2 for a no-root user.

Creating the camera Group

groupadd -g 70 camera

and add your user in this group.

Getting informations from your camera

In root, run the following command :

ptpcam --list-devices

You get something like this:

Listing devices...
bus/dev vendorID/prodID device model
2/4     0x040A/0x05BA   C633 Zoom Digital Camera

Creating the udev rule file

With datas give (vendorID/prodID) by the ptpcam command, create the following udev rule file :

cat > /etc/udev/rules.d/92-libgphoto2.rules << "EOF"
# udev rules file for libgphoto2 devices

BUS=="usb", SYSFS{idVendor}=="040a", SYSFS{idProduct}=="05ba", MODE="0660", GROUP="camera"
EOF
