You've got a fancy digital camera, and you want to upload all the photos onto your FreekBox. Here's how.

Ubuntu Dapper and Debian Etch and later systems

Just plug the usb cable into your box. The camera should be autodetected and the gthumb program should open and ask if you want to import your images. This should work with most cameras.


FreekBox 3

  • open a terminal and become root. To become root, type 'su' at the prompt, press enter, then enter the root password:
  • Plug your camera into the USB port on your computer.
  • Type:
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt
  • Open up your file browser (click on the little home-looking icon) and go to /mnt
  • Take a look at your pictures!

You can also:

  • Edit /etc/auto.removable file, then
  • Make an icon on the desktop which will do this whole thing automatically when you click it.
