I have a CoolPix P90, using Jaunty, it worked fine, until I updated the system, but not sure which update broke it. Now using Karmic and still have problems. Until recently, I've been able to work around, using gThumb as default app as follows:

plug in camera and turn on

gThumb opens but has an error about not being able to lock device

close gThumb - don't cancel, use close button, seems to make a difference

re-open gThumb and choose import - may report no camera for a few seconds, but will open import window and allow import.

An update a few days ago broke this, unless I reboot. Action as above will work once or twice, then reboot is required. I'm still working on a solution.

I think that gThumb and Fspot both use the same libraries, so behavior may be the same for Fspot too.

I use Fspot for image organizing, tagging, etc - just import from the directory that gThumb saves pix into. I like gThumb because it'll delete the pix from the camera after importing, Fspot won't.

HTH.
