I need some clarification on the workings of usb identification in kernel 3.18.

I use UDEV rules to identify usb hardware devices on physical ports based on the attribute "KERNELS".  The format is "BUS-DEVICE", which shows as "#-#", or "1-1", depending on the bus and device numbers.

In VL 7.0 / Kernel 3.2, the bus number would always stay the same.

In VL 7.1 / Kernel 3.18, the bus number seems to be a random number between 1-3 (at least on my hardware).  The device numbers are at least the same.

I was able to modify my rules to make my system work as intended, but would like to understand why the bus numbers are changing.  Can anyone provide insight on the changing bus numbers?

@roarde   Does not launch from panel correctly unless right click select properties.

The properties setting is determining the default behavior whenever you click the icon from the "panel". This is the default behavior if you add the "app" from the panel settings.

If you want the old behavior of being able to choose when clicking on the icon, go to your menu, find Screenshot, right mouse click on it and tell it to add to the panel. You'll then be able to select the behavior when clicking on the icon.

Nice that "ALL IS GOOD" now, but please tell us if I have this right:

The first launch of screenshot was from the panel, and it came up on the wrong screen.
At some point, you launched it from menu and it worked as you expect it to.
After that, it worked fine when launched from the panel, too.

Is that basically what happened? That's not major, but a nice thing to be fixed if there's time.

It's probably an incomplete burn...I've been having problems reading CD's so it probably not writing to good either.   I'll try another cdrom and disk.  Thanks

I visited "sledgehammer"'s account on bitbucket. If you recall creating the account about two years ago and can remember creating the repo "my-play-ground" as a test, then maybe you can try checking some other old email addresses of yours. If not, someone else has it. Pity the name is unavailable and the user isn't doing anything with the account.

It is helpful to have Bitbucket user names match forum names when they can, but not necessary. Create an account with a different name. In your first several posts, sign "sledgehammer" or "John" at the bottom of the post itself. People tracking the bug posts will learn quickly to recognize your Bitbucket username as being you.

Thanks for your reports so far, and for helping to make them even easier to follow.
