It didn't help ... the same result. (I also rebuilt all ports depending
of gvfs) 

In the halfaq it states

Since there is no problem with manual mounting or FreeBSD "seeing" the
devices, I guess the problem is with Nautilus. 

Is there some other debug output I can look at see what is going wrong?
(Nautilus options or something?) Could this be a symptom of
gnome-volume-manager trying to mount the camera instead of nautilus?

I also collected all the information again in case there is some
difference in the output. Please see

for details.
