QR Code Generator Plasmoid

Version Control:  Link
Minimum required   KDE 4.x
Downloads:  466
Submitted:  Dec 2 2010
Updated:  Dec 3 2010


The QR Code Plasmoid is a plasmoid for KDE 4 that enables the user to quickly
export some selected text in the form of a QR Code.
The purpose is to be able to quickly copy and paste text from the computer to
a mobile phone or other devices.

This plasmoid requires the libqrencode library and doesn't use any web services
so it can work offline.

The best way to use it is to add the Plasmoid to your task bar, not directly
on the desktop.


- Encode text into a QR Code with a single click
- The text can be taken from the current selection or clipboard
- Save the QR code as image file by clicking on it


- qrencode library (http://fukuchi.org/works/qrencode/index.en.html)

How to install:

You can either use the link below to find packages for your distro, or download the source and compile it this way:

mkdir build && cd build
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix` ..
sudo make install

Another way is to add my OBS repository: http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/PVince81:/projects/
if it has your distro listed. The repository also contains a build of qrencode.


- Initial version

- Fixed startup issues
- Added UTF-8 support

- Fixed compile error for 64 bits architecture

I don't know why this low rating. It works as need, easy install (gentoo). Its not wrapper of google api. Code is straight and ok, some doc (at least there is).

So its overall 85% from me, since it's the only plasmoid I found and easy to use. The TODO list is valid btw. hope you will work on it.

Thanks a lot for your comment.
I'm glad to hear that my plasmoid is useful :-)

The reason I wrote it is also because I didn't like to have to be online to generate QR codes.

Yea, even these days, I always prefer applications running on my computer (of course there are many exceptions, but not with this type of things). Because I can't rely on provider of content, nor on my ISP. So yea, it's useful for me, even when I'm online and don't want enter long urls via (touch)screen.

 it works, but...

...every generated QR code contains text that starts with the words "QRGenConfigDialog constructor" and I can't find the part in the sources where that might come from... any ideas?

Thank you. Your Plasmoid QR Code Generator is good. But can I use it to creat other 2d barcode?

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
