Projects / kbarcode


KBarcode is a barcode and label printing application for KDE 3. It can be used to print everything from simple business cards up to complex labels with several barcodes, such as article descriptions. KBarcode comes with an easy-to-use WYSIWYG label designer, a setup wizard, batch import of labels (directly from the delivery note), thousands of predefined labels, database managment tools, and translations in many languages. Even printing more than 10,000 labels in one go is no problem for KBarcode. Additionally, it is a simple xbarcode replacement for the creation of barcodes. All major types of barcodes like EAN, UPC, CODE39, and ISBN are supported.
