Thanks for your response! Awesome to get a response from the primary
developer of the project! Thank you for all your work on Tellico!
I wanted to ask if could be possible to use a USB scanner like [1,2,3,4]
Or, maybe it could be possible tp use an Android app like Barcode to PC .
Any advice and suggestions on how to do something like this would be very
welcome. It would be fine even if I could somehow scan the ISBN numbers
from a scanner or Android phone into a CSV file, using a separate program,
and then import the CSV file into Tellico.
Sorry if my questions are basic, but I don't know much about barcode
scanners, and I'm new to all thiss, and I'm 100% on Linux, specifically on
Thanks in advance for your help!
