Hello,

I am using a raspberry Pi and I want to develop an application to read barcodes using a board camera. My question is, the IC Barcode library is available for linux?

Best regards,
Marcelo.

Hi Marcelo,

unfortunately the IC Barcode library is not available for Linux and there are currently no plans for porting it.

But there is a GStreamer module for barcode reading available:
https://gstreamer.freedesktop.org/data/doc/gstreamer/head/gst-plugins-bad-plugins/html/gst-plugins-bad-plugins-plugin-zbar.html

I must admit, I did not test it on my own.

That's what I am currently using and it works well. The problem is that due the limitations of the raspberry, the process is a little slow resulting in low frame rates.

Anyway, thanks for the answers!

Best regards,
Marcelo.
