       zapping_setup_fb - prepares V4L/V4L2 driver for overlay

                        [-c, --child] [-d, --device FILENAME]
                        [-D, --display NAME] [-f, --fd] [-q, --quiet]

       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


       -?, -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 variable.

       -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.
