How do I upload my pictures from my camera to my Linux PC?

    Just connect the cable from the camera to the computer, or if you have a memory card slot you could take out the memory card and you wouldn't need the cable.

    were you able to upload pictures from your camera into Linux following Jeffery's advice. Please let us know if there are obstacles remaining. Thank you!

    Just like you would in Windows. Connect the camera to the computer using your via Firewire, USB or memory stick. Then Linux will mount the media and from there it depends on which distribution you're using, which you've so kindly not shared with us. For Ubuntu go to Places -> Computer and find the media, double click it and copy the contents.
