Do I need some special software to get photos of my compact flash card in my Canon camera on Linux? I am used to using a mac and I realized I always just open image capture but thats an apple app...

@liaizon Pardon me, but if you don't have much experience in Linux, you may be unable to access to the contents in your SD card because you haven't installed exFAT (fuse) or NTFS (ntfs-3g) support.

Which distribution do you use?


@liaizon For example, with OpenBSD I mount an exFAT drive with mount.exfat-fuse(8).

So (as by default OpenBSD is using doas and not sudo for root privileges) I type:

$ whatis exfat
> mount.exfat-fuse(8) - mount an exFAT file system

$ doas mount.exfat-fuse /dev/sdb1 /mnt/sd_card
