Agreed on Rhythmbox. Not so much on GThumb. AFAICT, it displays the images
as though cataloged...and then as soon as I remove the SD card or unplug the
camera, it's all undone again. It doesn't make any sense to me.

Seeing as that's optional, yes you did. I find the copying useful since
well...if it didn't copy them, it'd be like GThumb, pretending to organize my
camera (not actually changing the filesystem by the way, just pretending) and
not getting the images onto the computer. You'd have to manually copy all the
images from the camera to the hard drive, then run GThumb/F-Spot. In that
case, why are they set to start when a camera is plugged in or an SD card
inserted? They'd be rather useless for the "getting stuff of the camera"
usecase (the usecase implied by their autolaunching).

Several of my classmates have asked me about it, since the linking between
notes is quite useful for taking notes in class.
