Summary: USB topology and device viewer
USBView is a GTK program that displays the topography of the devices
that are plugged into the USB bus on a Linux machine. It also displays
information on each of the devices. This can be useful to determine if
a device is working properly or not.






* Tue Sep 04 2001 Peter Hanecak <hanecak(at)>
  - %{_tmppath} used
  - %{_prefix} used instead of %{prefix}
  - s/Copyright/License/
  - %configure and %makeinstall used
* Tue Dec 05 2000 Greg Kroah-Hartman <greg(at)>
  - fixed problem for devices that grabed more than one interface, the
    name of the device would show up repeated a bunch.  This was true
    for a lot of audio and video devices.
  - Tweaked the configuration dialog a bit.
  - Tweaked the about dialog a bit.
  - Everything seems stable, so let's put a major number on this release.
  - added a pixmap hacked up from an image by M G Berberich 
    <berberic(at)> to the about screen
  - cleaned up the spec file to hopefully build a bit better on different 
    versions of different distros.
* Sun Sep 10 2000 Greg Kroah-Hartman <greg(at)>
  - added Trond Eivind Glomsrød's patch to always try to populate the
    device tree when the program is started.
  - cleaned up the code layout, removing the i18n code for now. Also
    got rid of some old Glade helper code that was not being used. This
    reduced the tarball size by about 1/2!
  - usbview now updates the device list when devices are plugged in or
    removed from the bus automatically (needs 2.4.0-test8 or later to
    work properly due to a patch I made for drivers/usb/inode.c to 
    enable this to work.)
  - Made any device that does not have a driver associated with it, show
    up in red in the device listing.  This should help users with the
    problem that "My device shows up properly in usbview, but it isn't
    working," that a lot of people seem to have (it isn't obvious, I 
  - Added small, drab looking "About" dialog box, to make it easier to
    determine which version this is.
* Thu Jun 29 2000 Greg Kroah-Hartman <greg(at)>
  - fixed the Gtk-WARNING that happens the first time you press the
    [Refresh] button.
  - sped up the device info display a bunch. Should work a lot better
    for devices that have a lot of interfaces and endpoints.
  - fixed #ifdef bug in code. Thanks to Trond Eivind Glomsrød for
    noticing this and providing a patch.
  - fixed improper speed display for low speed devices. Thanks to
    Brad Hards for noticing this and prompting me to add support
    for high speed USB (like there will not be other changes for
    high speed when it happens...)
* Wed Jun 14 2000 Greg Kroah-Hartman <greg(at)>
  - Added ability to select where the devices file is located at.
    This allows you to view a usbdevfs devices file that comes
    from another user, for instance. It also accomidates those who
    do not mount usbdevfs at /proc/bus/usb.
  - Fixed bug with devices that have a lot of interfaces.
  - Changed the tree widget to a different style.
  - Restructured the internal code a bit nicer (a lot of work to
    go with this...)
  - Added a TODO file to the archive listing some potential changes
    that could be done.
* Tue Jan 04 2000 Greg Kroah-Hartman <greg(at)>
  - The logic for determining the name of the device changed to
    properly display the name of a keyboard or mouse when the
    HID driver is used. This is needed for kernel versions 2.3.36
    and up.
* Tue Dec 21 1999 Greg Kroah-Hartman <greg(at)>
  - now can handle multiple root hubs.
  - added display of bus bandwidth information for root hubs.
  - added support for device strings to describe the device.
  - made logic for device name to be smarter due to the availability
    of the string descriptors.
* Tue Dec 07 1999 Greg Kroah-Hartman <greg(at)>
  - updated the parser to handle the fact that the interface now
    dictates what driver is loaded.
  - Tested on kernel version 2.3.29
* Tue Oct 26 1999 Greg Kroah-Hartman <greg(at)>
  - redid the user interface slightly, making the tree always expanded,
    showing the top of the text field, and better balancing the splitter
  - changed the parsing to make it easier to handle any future changes
    in the way the format of /proc/bus/usb/devices
* Sun Oct 03 1999 Greg Kroah-Hartman <greg(at)>
  - Configuration, interface, and endpoint data is now displayed
    for each device.
  - Fixed problem with processing the last line in the /proc/... file
* Sat Oct 02 1999 Greg Kroah-Hartman <greg(at)>
  - devices are read from /proc/bus/usb/devices and put into a tree view
  - very basic information is displayed about each device when it is
