Kodak CX4230 "Still Image Camera" and Linux

My girlfriend recently got a Kodak CX4230 Still image camera, and since I am curious, I couldn't resist trying to connect it to my Linux boxes and see
if it would work.

Before I go any further, I would like to note that I am in no way an expert on USB, PTP or Digital cameras. I merely got it to work under a couple of
distributions, and would like to share the experience with everyone else.

My first attempts at connecting this camera to the Linux box started by making a lot of searches on the Internet, and not a single search showed up
with the Kodak CX series and Linux on the same page. I can only assume that this means not a lot of people has tried that before. Because of this, I
decided to write a few lines about how I finally got it all to work, and you are currently reading that short page on how to get it to work.
