We are attempting to run zbarcam (http://zbar.sourceforge.net/) on a raspberry pi (http://www.raspberrypi.org/). The application loads, but we cannot get the splash screen to disappear and load video from the webcam. We ARE able to make this work on a standard linux install, so the contractor must have access to make this fix on an actual Raspberry PI as that is where the issue occurs. Technical details are below.

OS: raspbian, kernel verison: 3.2.27+

architecture: armv6l

What we need:
experience with zbar-tools. Specifically ZBARCAM

We compiled the latest tarball from sourceforce, I compiled the latest version from mercury.

What we've tried:
Used the --v=512 command to display any errors but the log is not different than a log from a x86 debian install

Tested the webcam with luvcview and everything works fine. The framerate is pretty low but there is image

Please ONLY apply if you have experience with zbarcam and access to a raspberry pi. Thank You.
