Easiest way I've found is right on the Ubuntu site. Just follow the idiot's guide and you'll be up and running.

Does it need to be plugged in using the USB cord?

No, he's saying you can't get the shutter count from a 7D without sending it to Canon.

And you for sure can't get the shutter count from a picture.

It looks like you have a shutter count of 2,232. :)

Seriously, it's not that hard to create an Ubuntu boot disk and run Linux on a Windows PC. Once you have Linux going, installing gtkam and gPhoto is fairly simple. As far as I know, there is no other way to read the 7D's shutter count.

If you have MacOSX, you are already good to go and can install gPhoto without installing Linux.

It took me about 30 minutes to download and install these programs on my Windows 7 computer. Plugged my 7D in and it gave me the shutter count. Spend five minutes with Mr. Google and you'll have detailed step-by-step instructions.

Here are some (external link) and here are some more (external link).

EDIT: I just realized you were kidding :(

Wow, I didn't realize it was that easy. (I thought you needed the camera connected to get a count) Here is a photo I took on Monday. I am guessing my count is about 30,000 but I lost track a long time ago. Can you tell me what my count is?

Great shot!

When I got my refurbished 7D, I was very anxious to find out what the shutter count was but later decided that it really didn't matter much to me. (I forget what the actual number was, a couple hundred or something.)

Sorry, I stand corrected. I meant "except for using linux"

I'm not a Macker but maybe this will help:

xxmxaxrxyxx wrote in post #12211639 (external link)
well i went ahead and download xcode via the developer site. install macport and follow the direction to install gphoto2 via terminal.

now my question is what is the command to check the shutter count or how does that work?

it works! for mac' OSX here is what I did.
*First make sure you have Xcode for snow leopard or Lion. Its about 4 gigs in size, it becomes 10gigs when installed. here is the link: http://developer.apple​.com/xcode/ (external link)
*Then install MACport using the appropriate OS. here is the link: http://www.macports.or​g/install.php (external link)
Finally using terminal type this in the command line.

sudo port -v selfupdate
[to ensure macport is updated]

then this,
sudo port install gphoto2
[It takes 10 minutes to install]

then you can attach you camera using the USB port.
type this first to close other programs that automatically launches when camera is plugged in.
killall PTP camera

finally type this to get shutter count.
gphoto2 --get-config /main/status/shutterco​unter

Thank again for everybody who contributed and being patient to help me.

Cool.

Good of you to post the steps for the next guy! So what was your shutter count? Close to what you would have guessed?
