My camera is not directly supported, and uses a wonky USB cable, but does
support copy/move from internal mem to SC, so when I forget to replace the
card, I can still get the pics off.  Check the menus on the camera, and this
may be easier than trying to get USB Mass Storage (Usually a menu item as
well) working to access the camera directly.  Usually, you can select a USB
mode of Mass Storage to avoid the driver issue.

That is my understanding anyway. Also consider that 'shotwell does see the

Do a `lsusb` so that we can see how it is being picked up as well...

Ditto.  I have not had to install any specific drivers once I got the USB
mode and mem copy items worked out.
