This is really a question for the gphoto2 mailing list, but perhaps you'd
get better help if you posted (or looked at) your `gphoto2 --auto-detect --summary --debug`

I successfully use gphoto2-2.1.2 and libgphoto2-2.1.2_2 from gtkam-0.1.10
with my Kodak DC3400 digital camera. Works great!

I haven't had a whole lot of luck with these personally. Seems like they
break every other KDE release. I think I'll stick with gtkam.
