hanks Mark but Kodak does not support linux with it's install software so this
should work tru simply connecting the cam and having the USB drivers set it up as a
file system .. That is my understanding anyway. Also consider that 'shotwell does
see the cam and finds it locked... locked by whom is my question but I do not know
how to ask. I ran 'hwinfo' and  ( I cannot understand it perhaps someone can) here
are the failure lines I think:

Herb,

I believe this dmesg trace says that whatever software you have
currently installed doesn't support the camera. The application I use
is gphoto2, http://www.gphoto.org/, it supports most cameras from all
photo applications afaik. However, when I checked their list of supported
cameras (http://www.gphoto.org/proj/libgphoto2/support.php), the Kodak
C182 was unfortunately missing from the list. So your only choice may
be to wait for the memory card or use a Windows computer to download
your pics until the memory card arrives :-(

It is usually a good idea to check the relevant Linux supported hardware
lists before deciding on a piece of hardware to make sure that it is
supported by linux before you buy it. Often, the manufacturer uses a
proprietary interface and does not release the information to the public
domain, and then you are stuck with Windows only. This is particularly
true for very new hardware.
