Thanks for the reply. I actually meant I tried ufraw not ucraw but looking into it further I wonder if it is because the 60D is new and the format has changed slightly so is not supported.

Have you tried ufraw, either standalone or there is a gimp importer I
believe.  Search for ufraw in synaptic package manager.  I have not
actually tried them personally so that is about as far as I can go.
