many thanks to mattdm.!

Just tried your suggestion on my Ubuntu Linux install...

 exiftool imgp3944.jpg | grep "Shutter Count"
and it worked fine.

Had to change 'imgp' and 'jpg' to IMGP and JPG as that is how this version names them, and otherwise just cd'd to the directory in the terminal and ran that command.

Thanks again

Most P&S cameras have physical shutters too, it just may be augmented by switching the sensor for half of the cycle. Not all cameras (even among DSLRs) record the shutter count in a form you can access, though.
Yep, 'coz I tried it with my bridge P&S and I can't friggin find any shutter actuation counts!
I was thinking wether I installed the wrong PhotoMe.
