installing_futronic_s_fs80_usb_fingerprint_scanner

Introduction

This guide will help you connect Futronic's FS80 USB2.0 fingerprint scanner to your TS-7500. After contacting Futronic, they sent us the driver for the ARM architecture and it was really easy to set it up.

Installing the driver

Download, untar and compile the driver:

cd /opt

wget http://simiolabs.com/downloads/Futronic_FS80_USB_ARM_crosstool-gcc334glibc232_driver.tar.gz

tar xvfz Futronic_FS80_USB_ARM_crosstool-gcc334glibc232_driver.tar.gz

cd Futronic_FS80_USB_ARM_crosstool-gcc334glibc232_driver/ScanAPI_Ex/

cp libScanAPI.so /usr/lib/

Change the compiler from CC=arm-linux-gcc to CC=gcc,

nano ftrScanAPI_Ex.mak

so it looks like this:

TARGET=ftrScanAPI_Ex

CC=gcc
CFLAGS=-Wall -O2 -I./

FTRSCANAPI_DLIB=libScanAPI.so

all: $(TARGET)

$(TARGET): $(TARGET).c
        $(CC) $(CFLAGS) -o $(TARGET) $(TARGET).c $(FTRSCANAPI_DLIB)

clean:
        rm -f $(TARGET)

Compile it and run it:

make -f ftrScanAPI_Ex.mak

./ftrScanAPI_Ex
