Cameras on Solaris

Dan noted a while ago the libusb/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 /usr/sfw/lib.

Tie knot: Knot 7 (Half-Windsor) [reprise].
