It may be easier to replace "sudo mkdir /mnt/camera && sudo mount
/dev/sda1 /mnt/camera" with just "pmount /dev/sda1 camera". This will
let you mount the contents of the card as your user and create the
directory "camera" in /media. To un-mount you use "pumount camera" then
"eject sda1" to safely remove it. But that's all if you don't get the
normal pop-up that opens when you insert a card.
