I don't know Linux, but certainly the operating system should recognize the connection of the camera via the cable that I reported to you.
If you're talking about photo processing software instead, surely you can use Raw Therapee and/or Darktable and Gimp, which are also free,
but I think you already know them! However the operating system is able to detect your camera as if it were an external drive, i.e. as a hard-disk
or memory card or pendrive.

Let me know if this was your request, or I misunderstood.

Ciao, Mario

many thanks Mario - you got it right... linux can be a bit of a challenge but the UI might be easier than a valometer specially consider the cam is shooting from close to the computer.... be nice to change the dynamic range and other finer settings on the fly viewing them on a big screnn on the fly... thanks again

It's strange that you didn't have it in the kit.

Just saw this thread so a late answer to the question earlier in the thread. Pktriggercord will work with the K200D for tethering. I have used it under Mint.
