Description:

KBarcode is a barcode and label printing application for KDE. It can be used to print everything from simple business cards up to complex labels with several barcodes (e.g. article descriptions).

KBarcode comes with an easy to use WYSIWYG label designer, a setup wizard, batch import of data for batch printing labels (directly from the delivery note), thousands of predefined labels, database management tools and translations in many languages. Even printing more than 10.000 labels in one go is no problem for KBarcode. Data for printing can be imported from several different data sources, including SQL databases, CSV files and the KDE address book.

Additionally it is a simple barcode generator (similar to the old xbarcode you might know). All major types of barcodes like EAN, UPC, CODE39 and ISBN are supported. Even complex 2D barcodes are supported using third party tools. The generated barcodes can be directly printed or you can export them into images to use them in another application.

KBarcode is free software released under the terms of the GNU GPL.




Changelog:

KBarcode 2.0.7:

This maintenance release fixes bugs that prevent using KBarcode on recent distributions.
For this reason, workarounds for bugs in Qt 3.3.2 and earlier have been removed, therefore those versions are no longer supported.
The source package was tested on Mandriva One 2008.1 and Ubuntu 8.04, among others.

Thanks to everyone who has contributed.

Please report any bugs or feature requests to our mailing list: kbarcode-users@lists.sourceforge.net


KBarcode 2.0.6:

This release fixes the long standing issue with disapearing objects, printing from CSV files and connecting to CSV files. Thanks to Dag Nygren and Váradi Zsolt Gyula for their patches and to everyone else who has contributed to this release.

=======
March 16, 2006 (The INTERNET). The KBarcode Team is proud to announce the
availability of the stable release 2.0.0 yof KBarcode, the leading label
printing and barcoding solution for KDE.

Almost two years of development were put into the second generation of
KBarcode to make it more stable, more powerful and easier to use.

Notable changes include:
- Several data sources can be used to print labels:
~ KBarcodes SQL tables
~ Custom SQL queries
~ CSV files
~ The KDE addressbook
- More supported barcode symbologies thanks to the included barcode
backend "Barcode Writer in Pure Postscript".
- JavaScript support (for barcode values, text fields and visibility
of components)
- Batch printing is now configured through a wizard interface making
it a totally simple task
- Images can be loaded from a path constructed from an expression
- Completely rewritten KBarcode Handbook in PDF form

Getting KBarcode
================

KBarcode can be downloaded from our webpage www.kbarcode.net in source
and binary form. The KBarcode Handbook can also be found on this page as well
as screenshots of KBarcode and more information on the project.

Is there a DCOP interface to produce barcode image or print them on the fly from other apps or scripts?

That would be awesome! =)

After RTFM, seems like it! COOOL!

#!/bin/bash

# KBarcode DCOP example
# This works only with the first running KBarcode instance

# launch KBarcode
kbarcode

# find KBarcode's DCOP id
dcopid=$(dcop | grep kbarcode)

# Create a SQL connection if necessary
if [ $(dcop $dcopid KBarcode isSQLConnected) == "false" ];
then
echo "Creating SQL connection:"
dcop $dcopid KBarcode connectSQL
fi

# Start the batch printing module
dcop $dcopid KBarcode startBatchPrint

# Set the label you want to print
# be sure that the file exists
dcop $dcopid BatchPrinting setLabelURL "/home/dominik/Desktop/business.kbarcode"

# set the customer id
dcop $dcopid BatchPrinting setCustomerId 613203

# add all the items you want
# in this case we add the items
# art1001 - art1006
i=1;
while [ $i -le 6 ];
do
dcop $dcopid BatchPrinting addItem "art100$i" "" 1
i=$[$i+1];
done

# print but show the KPrinter dialog first
# if you do not want the dialog, that false to true
dcop $dcopid BatchPrinting print false ""

 Barcode reading

How hard would it be to makes the application read bar codes from images as well as generating them?

To read barcodes you need a scanner. There are scanners which fake that they are a keyboard (keyboard wedge). When one of these scanners is used every application on a PC can "read" the barcode.It is even possible to add a prefex or suffix to the read barcode. This way it is possible to control to behaviour of an application with a scanner. The only thing neccesary is that the application can be controlled with a keyboard.
Back to your question:
No application will ever read barcodes, but all apllication can receive input from a barcode scanner.

No application will ever read barcodes,

I wouldnt's be so hasty. I imagine a program with some visual recognition algorithms that would be able to read any barcode held up to a webcam or similar (including 2d barcodes) would be very useful.

In fact, someone's already done something similar for http://semacode.org/ - they've created software so that mobile phone cameras can interpret 2d barcodes with urls encoded into them. Like OCR for barcodes.

Some interesting possibilities.

 KOffice KPart

Are there any plans to provide a KOffice KPart? It would be great to be able to include barcodes in KOffice documents. Especially when combined with the mail merge feature. Sending a letter to a stack of customers in a database will be even more fun.

Indeed, a KOffice KPart for barcode generation is planned. I have already some working code on my harddisk but it is not yet ready for release.

The reason is that the KOffice KPart will share a new barcode engine with KBarcode (called BarKode). I will start to merge this new engine into KBarcode for the 1.9.3 release. Afterwards I will try to remove all bugs from it. After BarKode is bug free I will port it back into the KOffice part and talk to the KOffice developers about moving the BarKode Part into KOffice CVS.

I do not know how long all this will take. As I currently do not have a barcode scanner it is quite hard to ensure that the printed barcodes can be read by a scanner and are correct.
So it may take some time, but will be definitly done as it has high priority for me.

Are there plans for printing mailing labels using Kontact address book? Yes, some of us still use snail mail.

Look on the third screenshot.
The barcode has one six in the beginning, one in the middle and one in the end.
Why is that?
I've noticed that on virtually everything I buy. I never figured out why that number is written there. :/

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
