I'd like to catalog a bunch of CDs. My cuecat isn't working today; I'm not sure why not. And even if it were, alexandria fails to make heads or tails of the list of ISBNs that I captured last time it worked.
I'm not quite ready to pay $40 for Delicous Library 2, but I'm getting there.
zebra looks interesting; I like the idea of scanning barcodes with a webcam.
I couldn't get the firewire DV camera that works great with kino to work with cheese or ekiga any other v4l app; dunno why.
I broke out the old USB webcams; they still don't work. lsusb shows them as:
046d:08b2 Logitech, Inc. QuickCam Pro 4000 0545:8333 Xirlink, Inc. Veo Stingray/Connect Web Camera 046d:0870 Logitech, Inc. QuickCam Express 0733:0401 ViewQuest Technologies, Inc. CS330 WebCam
lots of this:
$ cheese libv4l2: error dequeuing buf: Input/output err
The Ubuntu community seems to track this as Bug #260918; I just subscribed.
