gphoto2/gthumb annoyance

Ran into An error occurred in the io-library (‘Could not claim the USB device’): Could not claim interface 0 (Operation not permitted). Make sure no other program or kernel module (such as sdc2xx, stv680, spca50x) is using the device and you have read/write access to the device using gphoto2 on Werewolf. A search landed up a set of posts here. Any tips would be appreciated at sankarshan dot mukhopadhyay at gmail dot com. Uploaded some debug output. Turns out that there is a bug on this. Thanks Basil Mohammad Gohar for pointing out the FedoraForum thread

Deja vu or Vuja de

I was reading this post from Richard and ended up being bemused at whether the world is really flat. In spite of knowing the folks who do Bengali and Bengali (India) localization personally, this got pushed as a request upstream without a slight poke as to “what do you folks think ?” In a way I was anticipating this for a while – a big thanks to the Pidgin team.

There’s a Localization Panel Meet being planned, I’ve earlier blogged about my expectations.
