I want to buy a barcode scanner to read labels from our products. I don't know if it will work on ubuntu. I have the option to get a CiperLAB 1070.
Will it work if plugged in?
Almost all barcode scanners will work (serial port connectors need a little extra config but they're pretty rare now). They'll work just like a second keyboard (for USB connections) or a regular keyboard (for wedge types). Most scanners are preconfigured to emulate a keyboard but can be reconfigured for POS applications.
