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.
