Used to be that this card reader was recognized as a USB device.
After many Trisquel_9 updates, it's no longer recognized.

My Trisquel_8 installation no longer boots after a recent update,
so I cannot tell if it works with that OS.

The card works fine in its Sony digital camera. It's about 24 mm
by 32 mm with nine contacts, only five or six showing signs of use.

So your external SD card reader is not recognized anymore?

Please show us the output of the following command:

lsusb

on your Trisquel machine, before and after you plugged in the SD card reader. That way we can make sure the USB connection is working properly and the system knows a device is connected. If that fails, the problem is likely the particular USB port, the USB cable or the card reader itself.

If the device connection gets recognized by lsusb we can proceed to troubleshoot any potential driver problems!

Cyberhawk suggested that I apply lsusb to the problematic device.

Here's what I found:

comm -13 <(sort before.lsusb.txt) <(sort after.lsusb.txt) > change.lsusb.txt
Bus 002 Device 004: ID 05e3:0723 Genesys Logic, Inc. GL827L SD/MMC/MS Flash Card Reader

The actual device is labelled "MULTI IN 1 Multislot card reader/writer."
It has slots for four sizes of flash cards.

Thanks !

So to clarify, when you put an SD-card into your reader, there is no mountable device recognized by Trisquel?

Your card-reader should be supported. There are reports back from Trisquel 6 of this device working.

Have you tested other SD-cards with it? If no SD-card will work, do you have another computer to test your card-reader on? Maybe the reader itself is at fault here.

In case this is really a driver issue within linux-libre, I believe we can solve that by installing a different (older, or newer) kernel. But first I suggest you verify the reader is really 100% working.

So, bottom line, please try other SD-cards (cards of different type). If different type of SD-cards work, but cards of same type as your Sony-camera card don't, you know the slot has a defect...

Second flash card (Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo):
comm -13 <(sort before.lsusb.txt) <(sort after.lsusb.txt) > change.lsusb.txt
Bus 002 Device 004: ID 05e3:0723 Genesys Logic, Inc. GL827L SD/MMC/MS Flash Card Reader

Each time the card reader is plugged in with the flash card in its slot, a box appears
in the workspace that has the card's correct capacity stated, but there are no app's
indicated, and no possibility of selecting another one.

Attempted in three different USB ports with the same result.

If I insert the card reader in the USB slot first, nothing happens, but as soon as I
insert the flash card in its appropriate slot, the nay-saying popup window appears.

the issue seems to be the mounting process. Are you using the Mate-edition (Trisquel, not Trisquel-Mini and not Triskel)?

Open your filemanager after this popup appeared. In Triskel (KDE edition) it's Dolphin. Can you see the new device (SD-card) on the left hand side, under "devices" or something similar? If so, just click on it - this should mount the card to a default location.

Hot-plugging is the issue; followup is necessary. Read on.

Boot with the flash card in place (in the chassis slot or in one or another
card reader) and the card(s) can be read & files transferred OK.

After hot-plugging the card, it's necssary to employ Cyberhawk's advice:
sudo mount /dev/sdc1 /media/george/FlashCard4Camera
Whereupon the flashcard becomes readable.

I peeked beforehand with gparted. It helped to know beforehand what other
devices were already in place.

Glad to hear your SD-card can be mounted and read after all.

Please tell us what edition you are using (Trisquel, Trisquel-mini or Triskel). Automounting works differently across those.

In case you need to "peek" like that in the future:


# this shows you which devices are mounted where
df -h


# this lists you all devices available for mounting, regardless of being mounted already or not
sudo fdisk -l

gparted is a rather big tool, that might not always be available in every situation. And it can potentially ruin the FS on devices (format and or mess with partition tables) if you click around REALLY carelessly.

Cyberhawk wants to know which OS this discussion was about:
Trisquel_9, a.k.a. etiona, for x86/AMD processors on a ThinkPad T420.

Those extra commands are handy but hard to stick in my memory cells:
df -h & sudo fdisk -l

Once in hand, be sure to use the man pages just to be sure what will happen,
e.g., "man fdisk" & "man df."

Thanks.

You're welcome!

It's about the edition. I'm aware you use version 9. There are three different (main) version "9"s however. Look here!

Is it Trisquel? Trisquel-Mini? Triskel?

If you are unsure, a screenshot of your desktop with the filemanager window and the main menu open should provide enough information to deduce what edition you are on.

Also, a screenshot of that one popup you get when inserting the SD-card would also be great. Normally, this popup contains a drop-down select box for choosing actions like "open it with the filemanager". Never seen this popup just stating the size of a card and offering nothing.

Trisquel; not the other two.

Screenshot of the pesky popup attached.

You are welcome !

That looks like a misconfiguration within Mate. I'm sorry, no idea where to fix that. I'm a KDE guy myself.

No one is chiming in on this topic. I guess your topic name is confusing people. Try opening a new topic with title "auto mounting SD-card in Mate not working".

Write the following in the first post:

"
Boot with the flash card in place (in the chassis slot or in one or another card reader) and the card(s) can be read & files transferred OK.

After hot-plugging the card this popup shows: (insert your screenshot again). To access the data on SD card, it's necessary to employ:

sudo mount /dev/sdc1 /media/george/FlashCard4Camera
"

With that description it should be easy to find help.
