Documentation, documentation

As much as I like my Operating System, sometimes the documentation just drives me crazy. I’ve been trying for a few days to get my digital camera to work with Digikam, a KDE program to manage your digital camera. Unfortunately, the program doesn’t detect my camera, although the operating system has no problem to detect it like any other USB mass-storage device. I think I’ve read every snippet of information that can be found on the Internet, but nowhere my problem is described, let alone solved. Adding to that, a lot of information is so cryptic, that nobody except the author understands it. That’s why I hereby demand better documentation. Or another brain to assist my present one in figuring out how stuff works.
