Re: camera issuue (solved)

Thanks, Dontpanic.
I have been searching for the answer and have ran across digicam . I searched for it in spritz and never found it.
Linux being case sensitive, I tried "Digikam" found and installed it and all is well.
Not sure how long it would have taken without your help.
Thanks again.
