The Canon PowerShot A495 uses PTP protocol instead of USB mass storage.
The following will probably work for other PTP camera’s

First install gtkam, you can do this by synaptic, aptitude or apt-get ( or your favorite package manager on non Debian based distribution ) *

Then install ( if not already installed ) gnome-volume-manager or halevt

After installing, start gtkam

Goto Camera -> Add camera

Make sure your camera is powered on and click ” detect ”
If your camera is detected you’ll see this, then press ” ok ”

Just click on the triangle on the left to see the folders on your camera, thumbnails of your pictures are in the right panel. Adjust windows size or the panel width if you like.

If you want to start gtkam when connecting your camera, goto:

System -> Preferences -> Removable drives and Media

and change the command to gtkam

* On Linux Mint Debian ( and maybe more distributions ) you also have to install mtp-tools. On Debian squeeze it is not necessary.
