CueAct is a small userspace utility that takes advantage of the Linux CueCat driver.
Its purpose is to exploit barcodes read by a CueCat reader, and decoded by the CueCat driver, by performing an action of interest associated with the barcode swiped (the most obvious being to link a barcode with a suitable database to look up in no time the information relevant to that barcode).
Compiling and installing
In the source directory, simply type ./make : the "cueact", "upce2upca" and "xautotype" binaries should be created without problem, the software being very simple and portable. Then, type ./make install as root to install the them in /usr/local/bin.
What's New in This Release:
· Deprecated the dcdb utility, as it is now useless since DigitalConvergence's database has disappeared.
· Changed the sample configuration file so that it calls Mozilla instead of Netscape, and changed the UPC database used from barpoint.com back to upcdatabase.com.
