Current state

  • tablet is running fedora + xmonad + basebar
  • two hardware barcode readers available
  • last finishing touches remaining


Alfa version -

Tablet has opensuse on it, xmonad installed with some config which needs more tuning for proper support of on-screen keyboard (eekboard is installed with intent to use). Now it boots directly into basebar application. Webcam should be connected before boot.


  • Barcode recognizer to basebar bridge currently doesn't survive webcam reconnect.
  • SW needs a non creepy way to show/hide on-screen keyboard - clever QT wizardry needed
    • possible to use recently released Qt Virtual Keyboard from QT5
  • xmonad.hs support for OSK (ewhm maybe?)

    • we'd have write module for scanning barcodes using camera
    • and either make the qt4 ui run on the tablet or write a web app to do this
