In f-spot we rely on gvfsd-gphoto2 for providing us with photo
information. The fact that gphoto2 sees the camera but gvfs-gphoto2 does
not leads me to suspect that this is an issue with gvfs, with the
unfortunate result that f-spot does not see the camera.

Shotwell uses GPhoto2 directly, which is prone to locking issues with
gvfs-gphoto2 (exactly the reason why we migrated away from libgphoto2).
This bug will affect Shotwell as well should they make the same

Normally there should not be a discrepancy between gphoto2 and gvfs-

Canon 20D camera not detected by f-spot and nautilus

Bug description:
Binary package hint: f-spot

I have been using F-spot to download my camera photos in Ubuntu for 3 years.

After upgrading to Maverick, I am unable to do so. The camera is not available in f-spot, nor is it seen in Places-computer.

Both the camera and connection are good, because I can see and download photos using Shotwell.
