I've discovered chdk 48 hours ago and am very excited to play with it. Please forgive my questions when they are silly.
I'm running ubuntu 12.04 and want to be able to control my powershot g12 from the command line on the host pc.
The solution that seems natural to me is to use chdkptp client software and write scripts to interact with the camera. I was able to compile chdkptp in command line mode but <list> returns <no matching devices found>.
gphoto2 shows me a list of files on the sd-card of the camera, so i am assuming that the ptp works in general.
when i want to connect the chdkptp client, i first start the camera in the chdk firmware and open one of the menus. Am i supposed to run some server side script on the camera ? I wasn't able to find coherent documentation of this process so would like to request some advice/pointers here.
Also, something is find note-worthy is that every time i plug in/out the camera, the dmesg queue shows something generic like:
usb 1-18.104.22.168: USB disconnect, device number 31
[18667.629821] usb 1-22.214.171.124: new high-speed USB device number 32 using ehci_hcd
[18669.479223] usb 1-126.96.36.199: USB disconnect, device number 32
[18998.776883] usb 1-1.3.6: USB disconnect, device number 14
[19002.046469] usb 1-1.3.6: new high-speed USB device number 33 using ehci_hcd
No mentioning to the canon/device name.. perhaps that can be relevant.
Thanks for your help.
