[Tellico-users] Tellico bug in Search facility

I believe the packages are now built with a switch to turn on or off the
web cam feature (as it was causing me major headaches in Fedora).

I believe that you need to go to:

Settings->Configure Tellico

Then uncheck:
Enable webcam for barcode scanning

Good Luck !
