Spreads on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

Post by pinetec-1 » 17 Jul 2015, 13:56


I'm trying to run spreads on my Ubuntu box (14.04 LTS) and I have run into a problem when running spread gui.

I'm at the Spreads Wizard page and I have set my options, but when I click next I get the following error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/spreadsplug/gui/gui.py", line 235, in validatePage
File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/spreads/workflow.py", line 873, in prepare_capture
if any(dev.target_page is None for dev in self.devices):
File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/spreads/workflow.py", line 526, in devices
self._devices = plugin.get_devices(self.config, force_reload=True)
File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/spreads/plugin.py", line 483, in get_devices
"Could not find any compatible devices!\n"
spreads.util.DeviceException: Could not find any compatible devices!
Make sure your devices are turned on and properly connected to the machine.

I have 2 Canon A2500 cameras connected and both are runnind chdk but they are obviously not being mounted correctly.

Any suggestions to mount these correctly?

Thanks in advance.
