comment Working with GDB in QGIS 2.0 - plain language instructions please!
@KMT - The easiest thing to do is copy the files you need to where they need to go. When you unzipped the file, it created a FileGDB_API folder. In that folder there are two import folders /include and /lib. Copy the contents of include to /usr/local/include and the contents of /lib to /usr/local/lib.

@KMT : The first thing to try is just type ogrinfo to see if it is installed and in your path. If it gives you an error message that shows you the command's usage and tells you there is no data source specified you're good to go. Use the command cd to change directories until you're in the same directory as your file geodatabase. Then you can use the ogrinfo -so gis_data.gdb command, replacing gis_data with your FGDB's name. If when you type ogrinfo it tells you command not found you'll need to install it.

@artwork21 From your screenshot it looks like you're using Windows. The Mac/Linux installs take a little hand holding to get FGDB support.

Artwork21's answer below will work if you have OGR's FGDB driver installed. To check if you do, you can use the command line. Change to the directory where your FGDB is stored, then use ogrinfo -so <directory name>. For example if your FGDB is called gis_data the command to use is ogrinfo -so gis_data.gdb. If you have the driver installed you'll get a list of the feature classes, if not it will tell you the dataset is not recognized.

comment Import Esri/ArcGIS .e00 files to QGIS on Linux (getting error message)?
I should have been more clear, I meant that in this case the e00 were raster, not vector.

comment How can I display a spatialLite view in a custom data sheet with print composer
You need to register the view with the geometry_columns table, PostGIS has spoiled me, one of the features of 2.0 is their geometry_columns is a view that automatically adds new spatial tables and views. For now Spatialite still needs to be updated manually.

comment Retrieve geographic coordinates from OSM imported data
As to why you're not seeing lat / long values, OSM's native projection is WGS84 / Web Mercator, the values you saw were in meters. wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/EPSG:3857

comment What is Python equivalent of ModelBuilder's Iterate Feature Selection?
I'm looking over you code but a quick point, your polygon names are going to start at 2; the count is incremented before the name is set. You'll either want to set count = 0 before the loop starts, or put the count = count + 1 (which you can shorten to count += 1) after you assign the feature name.
