KBarcode-kde4 port ready and released

KBarcode has been ported to KDE4/Qt4 by Fanda. Also some of the older bugs related to GUI have been fixed. It seems stable. The new version of KBarcode for KDE4/Qt4 has been renamed to KBarcode-kde4 so that users can have the old KBarcode for KDE3/Qt3 as well as the new KBarcode for KDE4/Qt4 installed on one system.

KBarcode-kde4 uses Akonadi. KCommand and related stuff has been ported to QUndoCommand and so on ... Spellchecking was ported to Sonnet but the new implementation of Sonnet in KBarcode-kde4 is odd and complicated so it will be deprecated and replaced in a future version.

KBarcode-kde4 is currently in a beta stage. It is not in Ubuntu or Debian repositories yet. At the moment (2012-12-14) only a deb package for amd64 architecture exists. Download the deb package kbarcode-kde4_3.0.0b2-1_amd64.deb from and follow instructions in to install it.

The source code can be found in the source tarball at or in the GIT repository at

Thank you very much for your work Fanda!
