The combination of adding a udev rule to ignore all Canon cameras, and commenting out the section for my camera in 20-libgphoto2-6.hwdb seems to have worked.
Glad to hear you got it working.

Maybe checking that file could be added to the documentation? There's a ton of Canon cameras in there.
Which documentation? (not being snarky, it's pretty scattered)
You are certainly welcome to to add to the CHDK wiki, and I'm happy to take suggestions for the chdkptp install.txt / wiki page.

I admit I tend to be hand-wavy about the linux stuff because it's distro specific, not well documented upstream, and I don't understand it that well myself.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

I was thinking install.txt, after you mention adding a udev rule; like "if your udev edit didn't work, try this thing with 20-libgphoto2-6.hwdb also" kind of thing.

Side question: should install.txt have been included in the zip? It took me a bit to realize I had to go back to the web browser. (r723)

Good call, I'll try to add something like that.

Yes, it should have. Thanks for catching that.

No problem; thank you for all the help. It's awesome to see a developer so involved in helping the users troubleshoot issues.

Also, thank you @waterwingz and @srsa_4c for the suggestions. Even though I didn't end up using them, I appreciate you taking the time to offer them.
