You are kindly invited to the meeting:
Silverblue on 2018-11-12 from 09:00:00 to 10:00:00 US/Eastern
The meeting will be about:
Fedora Silverblue IRC meeting in #fedora-meeting-2 on Freenode. Fedora Silverblue is an rpm-ostree-based Fedora desktop edition.
A camera set to either Auto or MTP mode won't mount in Fedora
Workstation. Near as I can tell, the problem is with mtp-probe. But I
guess it could be kernel confusion.
I've posted a message on the libmtp list but no replies:
The sequence looks like the kernel correctly discovers the make,
model, serial number correctly but not that it's an MTP device.
Something gives up and causes it to be disconnected. And then when it
immediately reconnects it's now recognized as a USB Charger which is
not correct, and also not an MTP device.
The work around for this is to install fuse-exfat from RPM Fusion, and
set the camera to Mass Storage setting, and now the storage card is
directly mounted automatically. So this isn't a show stopper bug, but
I'd say it's suboptimal for showcasing free software. Using MTP
obviates the need for the host directly mounting the storage card's
file system, and it's also safer.
Any next step ideas?
I want to ask about the legal status of including 3rd party repositories
and have them enabled by default (but no software from it preinstalled) in
a Fedora Remix. Especially I am looking at rpmfusion (including -tainted).
Fedora does currently ship with disabled rpmfusion[steam, nvidia],
Google-Chrome and Flathub which includes VLC.
