Cameras on Solaris
Dan noted a while ago the
libgphoto2 stack works well on Solaris 10 (and newer Express releases, of course). I’ve been using the
gphoto2 CLI to manipulate my beaten-up Canon over USB, and then
gthumb as my image browser/cataloguer. There are a few bugs here and there and some obvious enhancements needed, but the trajectory in this space is impessive. Since I’ve now got a “for-work-only-toy-camera”, I’ll keep experimenting with related applications on Solaris, and make any observations here.
You can get all of the mentioned software prebuilt for Solaris at Blastwave. A working
libusb is available in
Tie knot: Knot 7 (Half-Windsor) [reprise].
