I initially noticed that shotwell fails to display thumbnails for my N9 during import. But I was able to reproduce this using the gphoto2 shell:

/> cd DCIM
Remote directory now '/DCIM'.
/DCIM> get-thumbnail 20120218_001.jpg
Downloading '20120218_001.jpg' from folder '/DCIM'...
Downloading '20120218_001.jpg' from folder '/DCIM'...
*** Error (-6: 'Unsupported operation') ***

Getting the image itself, however, does work:

/DCIM> get 20120218_001.jpg
Downloading '20120218_001.jpg' from folder '/DCIM'...
Saving file as 20120218_001.jpg

  • can you attach debugoutput please?

    gphoto2 --debug --debug-logfile=xx.log ....

    also make sure "libgphoto2" is compiled with libexif support (you can check that by doing
    gphoto2 --version

    )

  • I am suspecting that the N9 does not generate EXIF data.
