#779 udev rule to add for Canon Powershot A470

libgphoto2 (82)

This camera doesn't work by default.
On my Gentoo, I'll have to add udev rule for it :
ID 04a9:317a Canon, Inc

/etc/udev/rules.d/70-libgphoto2.rules :
ATTRS{idVendor}=="04a9", ATTRS{idProduct}=="317a", GROUP="plugdev"

I try to add it on the ubuntu on my laptop, but I didn't find the way to do it

Without this hack, I have to be root in order to mount the device

    it should just work already in Ubuntu.

    (caught by the generic matching logic).

    I added the id to our internal database, will be in the next release.
