    I have an excellent Canon s230 camera. I tried making it work with
    Mandrake 9.2 with out luck. I get numereous communication errors.

    Is there any camera manufacturer that supports linux?
    Here are the 3 main reasons I resort occasionaly to using Windows:
    1. Picture download.
    2. High quality picture printing.
    3. Encarta Encyclopedia

    Thanks,
    Daniel C.

    Yes, that is what I tried. The downloads don't work. I get numerous
    communication errors. I have a high speed 512mb flash card. Perhaps that
    is part of the problem.

    Might be easier to use a card reader.

    I can't comment on Mandrake, but I recently installed Suse 9.
    It comes with Digikam v0.6.0, and right out-of-the-box, it
    works with my s230. Digikam is a KDE front-end for GPhoto2.
    My system also has:
    - KDE 3.1.4
    - libgphoto2 2.1.2

    For picture printing, I use the Gimp - great for one-offs
    where I want to tweak something in the image before printing.

    PS. I agree that the s230 is an excellent camera!

    Redhat uses gtkam which was renamed gPhoto.
