Hi

I need a little help (again).

I have a webcam connected to a PC, the webcam is hanging above a table.

The user adds some things to the table.
And then presses "any key" on the PC.
The camera takes a picture and the user sees the picture for 15 seconds before returning to picture taking mode.

Dist is stock ubuntu.

It must be possible, but how?

J;-)

Is it possible to add a "password" that unlocks the picture taking when "any key" is pressed?
