       zapping_setup_fb - prepares V4L/V4L2 driver for overlay


       zapping_setup_fb [-?, -h, --help, --usage] [-b, --bpp NUMBER] [-c, --child]
                        [-d, --device FILENAME] [-D, --display NAME] [-f, --fd] [-q, --quiet]
                        [-S, --screen SCREEN NUMBER] [-v, --verbose] [-V, --version]


       zapping_setup_fb is a small program to prepare Video For Linux (V4L) or Video For Linux
       Two (V4L2) video capture drivers for video overlay. It must be executed by pam(8) with
       root privileges, or owned by root with the set-user-ID bit set (see chmod(1)). This manual
       page refers to zapping_setup_fb version 0.13.


       To enable video overlay V4L and V4L2 drivers need to know the screen memory address. For
       security reasons only the system administrator can program this address.  zapping(1)
       delegates the task to this helper application.


       -?, -h, --help, --usage
           Prints usage information on stdout, then terminates the program.

       -b, --bpp NUMBER
           Color depth hint, the number of bits per pixel on the display in question, either 24
           or 32. Usually zapping_setup_fb can determine this number automatically.

       -c, --child
           Zapping sets this flag when executing zapping_setup_fb as child process to enable the
           output of localized error messages in UTF-8 encoding on stderr.

       -d, --device FILENAME
           The video capture device to open, by default /dev/video0.

       -D, --display NAME
           The X display to use. Defaults to the name defined by the DISPLAY environment

       -f, --fd NUMBER
           Zapping uses this option when executing zapping_setup_fb as child process to access
           the video capture driver by this shared file descriptor instead of opening the device
           file by name.

       -q, --quiet
           Decrements the verbosity level.

       -S, --screen NUMBER
           The X screen to use (Xinerama), defaults to 0.

       -v, --verbose
           Increments the verbosity level.

       -V, --version
           Prints the version of zapping_setup_fb on stdout, then terminates the program.


       None known.
