GThumb photo import, no sources…

Since a moment, I was unable to import photos from my camera (Canon Powershot A720 IS) using ghtumb.

When I plug my camera on USB, I’m getting gnome dialog box, asking me to ignore or import photos. If I choose import option, ghtumb start but don’t show anything.

After searching a long, I note that Rhythmbox show my camera as an audio player… In rhythmbox, I uncheck the “Portable player – MTP” plugin and restarted. After that, ghtumb is able to import my photos from my camera again. Seems that there is a conflict between ghtumb import photo and the rhythmbox “Portable player – MTP” plugin.

I’m using Debian SID (gthumb 3:2.11.5-4, libgphoto2-2 2.4.6-3, rhythmbox 0.12.8-2).

[update] Known bug.

NVidia 8600GT R.I.P.

Since my last Debian upgrade, I was unable to get Xorg starting. After reboot, Xorg freeze, using 100% CPU…

My NVidia configuration was up for 2 years, and all Debian upgrade works well. As an Open technologies fan, my first response was : “Putin de pilotes propriétaires…*”. It seems to me that the only non-free software used was the problem.

ChezOuam debian mirror

I added debian mirror service on ChezOuam network.

You will find on it all sort of packages that I create/modify some of them are very specifics, others are tests/changes that I done on third part software/package.

I put them on this mirror mainly because of :

  • don’t install anything without a package on my computers
  • development purposes (ie: using to test changes done on third part packages)
  • waiting for a better place

More informations there.

Service fail

hm, what’s it… Since my last Debian update (about 1 week), this site was out of order. I think this is the most unpercieved web site failure, but I be keen to write a post for history, and, I hope, don’t forget this dark chapter.
