Difference b/w this libusb "1.0" and other 2:0.1.12-15? Maverick.

Asked by Kiers on 2012-08-14

WHat's the diference between the TWO libusb's showing up in Synaptic? this one versus 2:0.1.12-15? are they both compatible? I have both installed? but having mtpfs problems where dmesg says: usbfs: mtpfs process did not take ownership of bus 0...?

Maverick is dead, so it's pretty moot. It is not supported here or anywhere else, nor are there any updates for it. I suggest you run a full backup then reinstall with a clean install of Precise.

I think that Kiers asked about the difference between
 'libusb-0.1-4' and 'libusb-1.0-0'
packages provided by the following source packages:

Therefore, Ubuntu Maverick doesn't matter here.

From that point of view:
1) binary packages built from the 'libusb-1.0' source package (like 'libusb-1.0-0') provide the current libusb-1.0 API;
2) binary packages built from the 'libusb' source package (like 'libusb-0.1-4') provide the (native, not a compatibility layer) legacy libusb-0.1 API (needed by some programs which have not switched to the current libusb-1.0 API).
Look at http://www.libusb.org/ for more info.

More to say, starting from Quantal (12.10), Ubuntu uses 'libusbx' instead of 'libusb-1.0': https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libusbx
Look at http://www.libusbx.org/ for more info.

For Kiers,
1) libusb-0.1 and libusb-1.0 shouldn't conflict with each other;
2) the problem you've mentioned in your question is rather mtpfs-related;
3) as actionparsnip already said, Ubuntu Maverick (10.10) has reached its End-of-Life -- please upgrade your system using an up-to-date and supported Linux distribution;
4) if your problem still persists in the fresh environment, please file a bug report against mtpfs.

Can you help with this problem?
