|Thema:||new categories of hardware|
Hi, this is lammi87
I would like to suggest barcode scanners as a new hardware category. They are really handy when paying bills. I have one which works with free software. I just plug it in to the usb port and star using it right away.
I tried to see the information about my barcode reader with lsusb but it seems that it is not recognized correctly/completely. Here's the output:
Bus 002 Device 003: ID 0000:0001 Device Descriptor: bLength 18 bDescriptorType 1 bcdUSB 1.10 bDeviceClass 0 (Defined at Interface level) bDeviceSubClass 0 bDeviceProtocol 0 bMaxPacketSize0 8 idVendor 0x0000 idProduct 0x0001 bcdDevice 1.00 iManufacturer 1 ZEBEX Industries Inc. iProduct 2 Barcode Scanner iSerial 0 bNumConfigurations 1 Configuration Descriptor: bLength 9 bDescriptorType 2 wTotalLength 34 bNumInterfaces 1 bConfigurationValue 1 iConfiguration 0 bmAttributes 0xa0 (Bus Powered) Remote Wakeup MaxPower 200mA Interface Descriptor: bLength 9 bDescriptorType 4 bInterfaceNumber 0 bAlternateSetting 0 bNumEndpoints 1 bInterfaceClass 3 Human Interface Device bInterfaceSubClass 1 Boot Interface Subclass bInterfaceProtocol 1 Keyboard iInterface 0 HID Device Descriptor: bLength 9 bDescriptorType 33 bcdHID 1.01 bCountryCode 0 Not supported bNumDescriptors 1 bDescriptorType 34 Report wDescriptorLength 64 Report Descriptors: ** UNAVAILABLE ** Endpoint Descriptor: bLength 7 bDescriptorType 5 bEndpointAddress 0x81 EP 1 IN bmAttributes 3 Transfer Type Interrupt Synch Type None Usage Type Data wMaxPacketSize 0x0008 1x 8 bytes bInterval 10 Device Status: 0x0000 (Bus Powered)
The vendor and product IDs (VendorID:ProductID) look strange, I can't find a name or vendor for the product in idVendor and idProduct (that is where the wiki tells me to look them for) and it is recognized as a keyboard. What's wrong?
What do you think? Should these be added as a category?
