It sort of does, but I think it uses wine. Been so long I can't
remember, and the only thing I use wine for are google earth and picasa.
You used to be able to upload photos FROM your computer TO the picasa
web albums, but I guess they figured they couldn't expose you to enough
ads that way and now require you to go to the website and suck the
photos up from your computer. Minor annoyance.
Faster to copy using a card reader than directly from the camera. Last
I heard Canon refused to support linux in any way and the SANE and other
open source utilities are inadequate.
FWIW, jhead does a nice job of renaming photos with the exif dates,
which xv doesn't do -- xv doesn't even preserve that data; gimp will if
you tell it to.
Picasa does most of the photo editing that I want in a fairly painless
way. I'd like it to enlarge photos as well as shrink them and I'd like
it to fix the perspective as well as "straightening" the photos. I
could do both with gimp, but that's more trouble than I'm generally
willing to go to.
