[ubuntu] Canon Powershot sx130 not recognized

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi. When I plug my camera (canon powershot sx130) in via usb it doesn't get recognized by the system. In digikam the import menu remains grayed out and in picasa it does not show up on the import screen's list of devices. I'd love to troubleshoot this and track down the issue but I'm at a loss as to where to start. Can anyone give me some items to check that could get me in the right direction. I'm fairly comfortable with digging around via the terminal and making changes but I've never had to really track down or figure out a camera related issue before. Any help or advice would be greatl (Hardware)
