 Post subject: Kodak dc3200 camera
PostPosted: Mon Apr 18, 2005 3:31 am 
Hi, I have a dc3200 kodak camera and it works when I log in as root with the photo tool but not as a regular user. When I log in as a normal user the port that I need is blank but when I am root it shows right up.

Is it a USB or a serial port? Are you logging in from GDM (e.g. the beach scene) or doing startx?

If it's serial, do something like:

Code:
chmod a=rw /dev/ttyS0


Or possibly ttyS1

It is a serial pot camera. The serial port shows up when using the photo program under graphics when I am a root user but a normal user it is blank.

Ya, the serial ports are owned by root, so that chmod should do it. USB gets chown'd when you log in. Fedora can't chown the serial ports for legacy-like reasons (it might break some modem setups).
