I`m having a problems with starting with Spreads. I have instaled it on fresh install of lubuntu 14.04 x64 on MSI wind U160 (dedicated to be book scaning unit), I have used tutorial https://github.com/OliPelz/spreads-ubuntu-trusty to complete instalation (tried about 5 times, all with fresh installs until i managed finaly to start Spreads, web, gui, guiconfig...) and I think that it is working now as it should.
I have two different cameras, Canon A1100IS and Canon A590IS both with chdk 1.3 on sd cards. I will trie to describe situations of them:
This cammera has play/rec swich and I`m having trouble with it. When I start /usr/local/lib/chdkptp/chdkptp_gui to test it, camera connect ok but when i trie to take a picture, it say "not in rec mode" if i clic rec mode in chdkptp noting happends, if i swich buton on camera, computer doesn`t see it any more.
With this one situation is better because it has a play/rec button (not switch), chdkptp recognise it and when i click on rec button i can take a photos and store them directly on computer hdd.
I have configured Spreads exactly as it is written in tutorial, except chdkptp instalation (I installed latest one, everything else is as is). I tested gui, guiconfigure and web and they are working. Problem is when i trie to connect and configure cameras (mainly I was testing A1100IS because i know that i can take a picture with it):
