barcode scanner drops digits... (part 2)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 19, 2014
i tried and post about this issue about one year ago (http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ts-4175486898/), but no solution was found...
now i have some more info, let's try again...
i have 2 usb barcode scanners: one ir-super-cheap and one laser-not-that-cheap.
the ir model perfectly works. the laser scanner instead "drops digits" when a particular pattern is found in the scanned string (see previous link if interested in a detailed description).
this morning i noticed that the laser barcode scanner is not described as a keyboard into /proc/bus/input/devices:
read from a USB barcode scanner that simulates a keyboard
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 25, 2006
I have a USB barcode scanner that acts like a keyboard: whenever a barcode is read it sends the code where the keyboard would normally write. I would like to write some code (preferably in C) to modify this behavior and to be able to listen to the scanner from a program, just like I would read from a socket or a serial port for instance.
I am writing code to control a robot, the barcode scanner is used for localization. So I need the control code to be able to listen to the scanner.
Maybe you don't know the solution but can give some ideas that would put me on the way. I have the feeling that I could use the ioctl function, but I am not familiar with the underlying concepts, and it's a pretty complex function.

redirecting the output of a USB barcode scanner (= USB keyboard)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 23, 2007
I have a USB barcode scanner that acts like a keyboard: whenever a
barcode is read it sends the code where the keyboard would normally write.
I would like to redirect the output to /dev/rtfX (RTAI FIFO).
What I do know is to read from the USB barcode scanner using libhid and
write to the FIFO using dedicated API. However, it's a bit complicated,
and I have the feeling that the result could be obtained with very few
lines of code.
MardukKurios suggested this:
They normally configure as a keyboard, though in Linux, by default, some
of the COM ports may not be accessible. Add "8250.nr_uarts=8" to the end
of your kernel line to have it configure past COM4. I.E.:
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.15-1.2054_FC5 ro root=LABEL=/ 8250.nr_uarts=8
If you cat /dev/ttySX (X is the number of the COM port you want to listen
to) and scan something, you should see input.
This seems like a good idea, but unfortunately 8250.nr_uarts is not an
option recognized by my kernel. Ho

How to access USB barcode scanner data directly from USB port using C/C++

Hi Everyone, i am Ashish,
Currently i am working on USB port programming for Linux to fully controll USB ports. I am running Ubuntu 13.04 and i try to read data from ttySX files for USB port and also from /dev/bus/usb. But i am not et any results. I serach online for that so i find ttyUSBX port but in my case there no tty like that. Also problem is that, the manufacturer of USB barcode scanner not provide driver for linux. So can any one suggest me how to read data from USB port without driver.
