I am VERY new to all this, so thanks for your patience
I've installed LXDE on the parents computer since the old xp kept giving them virus/spam trouble.
They tried to connect a camera, and it wouldn't auto detect. Everything else has been pretty smooth, including hooking up the printer, but I'm not sure what to do about the camera.
I know a last ditch solution could be to go buy a usb card reader, but I'd really like to figure this out.
I've heard that Thunar is something that can be configured to auto detect, but I have no idea what it is, or where it is (Synaptic says that I have it, but there is no File>Thunar)
I'm thinking to myself, what the heck am I supposed to do? How do you get LXDE to auto-detect this stuff? Any advice?
Also, I tried shutting the camera off, turning it back on, using different USB ports, etc.
I am currently running the full LXDE 2010 final on this comp. Would definitely appreciate any help, as this is their first experience with Linux, and they definitely need it to do everything they are used to with other OSs.
btw, the camera in question is a Canon Powershot A480.
