 great.  It will get into BLFS-dev "real soon now" (I'm short of

 I'm not quite sure how it is used, but I see it is a front-end for
gphoto2 (which doesn't impress me, I'm afraid).  So, my usage is
probably going to be slightly different from the way you want to

 I set up a rule for my camera in udev, an entry in /etc/fstab, then
I just mount it and copy the files over (needs vfat in the kernel).
Then, I use the gimp (and ufraw for raw files) to do manipulation, or
sometimes I just use 'display' from ImageMagick.

 Not necessarily the most convenient way of looking at the pics
(display will open them with pixels mapped 1:1), but then I normally
have to do manipulations anyway, which is why I use the gimp.

 Alternatively, somebody will perhaps have a good word for gwenview
(kde4 - again uses gphoto2), but in all honesty I think we've some way
to go in sorting out how best to build kde4 at the moment.

 Maybe there are other front ends, I can certainly peopel mentioning
that they use gphoto2.

 I've seen that elsewhere, I think (checks notes ...) - also applies
to dvd+rw-tools, add '#include <limits.h>' to that file (the
userspace side of cdrom.h changed in 2.6.23).  Oh, that's another
"appears to no longer be maintained" package.  We seem to have an
awful lot of them in BLFS.
