cue cat doesn't work well under X, but on the console ti works fine
In browsing the web (under Windows. Darn it, IE is
Netscape, and it handles bookmarks much better) I came across a site that
decodes the :Cue:Cat bar code scanner. Since I have the scanner hooked up to the Belkin OmniView,
I decided to
try it under Windows on that site.
It worked. Unlike last time.
I then logged into the Linux box from Windows, and tried it. Again it
Then I tried from another Linux box in console mode. It worked again.
I think the problem is that X Windows is affecting or misinterpreting the
keyboard scan codes, causing problems with the :Cue:Cat. But it's nice to
know it works.
Just not under X Windows.
