Introducing Entangle: Tethered Camera Control & Capture

Inspired by Kushal Das from Planet Fedora, I packaged entangle – a nifty tool enabling tethered control of your Canon or Nikon DSLR from your Linux desktop.

It has some dependencies not yet in portage, so you need the gnome and the bangert overlay – for “easy” installation on Gentoo.

$ layman -a gnome
$ layman -a bangert
$ emerge -av entangle

Mind you, entangle-0.1.0 is its first release, but it works pretty well already. Daniel BerrangĂ© – the principal developer behind entangle – has been very responsive in fixing a nasty segfault. Thanks.
