There was no problem when I was using Dapper. It only reared
it's head when I installed Edgy. I did a fresh install, but
without overwriting /home, which I have in a separate partition.

To reply to Jonathan Hitchcock, I have libgphoto2-2, which
appears to be the latest for Edgy.

What I have done is to write a bash script that I can run
each time, using Alt-F2, and which changes the permissions on
/dev/bus/usb/003/* and allows me to import the photos. I
guess I'll stick with this until I install Feisty.

Thanks to all.
