gPhoto2 first steps

What (language?) should I learn in order to use gPhoto2 from the terminal and not just press the laptop’s space bar or click on the graphic interphase to take pictures? has many interesting commands, but I don’t know what I need to study and install first -I’m guessing Python.

What you link to, gphoto2, is a command line client. You use it from your terminal. You can use a shell scripting language like bash to interact with it.

If you want to use libgphoto2, the library, you’ll need a programing language like Python.

Thanks. My first step, then, is learning the difference between gphoto2 and libgphoto2.
