Hi Rick,

I have never really bothered much with koha's barcode module.
We are running Linux (Debian) and use a program called kbarcode.
(www.kbarcode.net) It gets it's information from the koha database. It
prints our barcodes and spinelabels. Quite versatile program really. And it

I think I spoke too soon. MJ Ray's patch called barcodefix.patch
shows the following:

-use PDF::API2::PDF::Utils;
+use PDF::API2::Basic::PDF::Utils;

It seems that there is a PDF Utils module, by a different name.

What concerns me is that the printing and barcode stuff seem not
to have worked for quite a while. Either this functionality is
not being used by the Koha community or librarians are awfully
mum about system errors.
