Re: [PLUG] Best way to edit EXIF info on linux?

There also seems to be a gtk app in that list too.. So if you're looking for a gui editor, there you go. 

Golly, I love portage so much.

Here is the equivalent from gentoo - this might have found some that JP 
didn't (or some could be the same packages with a different name).  I'd 
be shocked if most didn't have ubuntu packages available.

Note that several of these are libraries, but it might be easy to write 
a wrapper around them, and they might have some tools included or have 
tips on their websites.  The first looks like a perl library so if 
you're good with perl I imagine you can do quite a bit with it.
