gPhoto 2.4.11 puts an end to tethering issues with Canon EOS
Full support for DSLR features has always been a bit of a problem for 3rd party software as developers had to reverse engineer things. Even Lightroom 3 had tethering support for very few cameras initially. For Linux users tethered shooting with Canon EOS series is finally a history now that new version of gPhoto is out.
Whether you are darktable 0.6+ or Rawstudio 2.0+ (more on that soon) user, capturing pictures should work as expected for you now. The only limitation is that you can't do CR2+JPEG yet, but JPEG or CR2 separately will work.
Additionally translations have been updated, and a bunch of new IDs have been added:
