Having trouble creating price tags, address labels, or business cards? Help is at hand with the KDE program KBarcode.

The KBarcode program [1] not only helps you design labels of various shapes and sizes, it can also generate and print barcodes for pricing and billing purposes. And if you like, the program will retrieve article and customer data from a MySQL server.

The current version of KBarcode, version 1.8.1, needs a working KDE environment, version 3.3 or newer, and the Qt SQL driver. An SQL server is not required for occasional printing of labels, DVD labels, or business cards. The program will run quite happily without a back-end database.
