My USB bar code scanner (SYMBOL LS2208) is recognized as a HID.
hid-generic 0003:05E0:0600.000F: hiddev0,hidraw0: USB HID v1.10 Device [\xffffffef\xffffffbe\xffffffa9\xffffffbe\xffffffa9Symbol Technologies, Inc, 2002 Symbol Bar Code Scanner] on usb-bcm2708_usb-1.3/input0
When I scan bar codes it doesn't send ASCII chars.
(It 'beeps' and then text editor is left blank.)
I have tried re-configuring the scanner to do Simple COM port emulation. But after testing when it is configured this way - it doesn't even scan at all.
How can I get this scanner to send ASCII codes to my Raspberry Pi 2?
