I recently went and bought a "9-in-1" card reader and was interested what SUSE LINUX 9.2
Professional did with it. I was slightly skeptical about it being "as easy" as
it is to use in Windows due to some past experience with my camera.
with a slightly skeptical demeanor, I turned off my SUSE box, and plugged the
card reader into the internal USB 2.0 port directly on my motherboard.
then turned it on and waited.
The system started up, and I was presented
with my KDE background image and a cursor. I put in a media card into one of the
card slots and crossed my fingers.
I sat and waited about 2 seconds
before a lovely window popped up out of no where.
was delightfully proven wrong. I didn't push anything at all, or change anything
anywhere to make that window pop up. It just knew there was a card in the slot
gave me my options.
I clicked Yes and immediately a new window
opened up with directories to where my images were housed.
navigated to where my images were (which varies on what type of media is
inserted and what device was used to create the media) and I easily found my
here I simply dragged and dropped my images into the appropriate folder, took
out the card, and I was done!
Looks like SUSE LINUX 9.2 Professional is
indeed a "media-ready" Operating System, as far as this card reader goes.
