    QR Code Generator Application

    Does anyone know of a QR Code Generator Application available for linux/windows? I see many on-line websites but would like an installable application.

    (yes old, few months in fact, i know)

    heres one
    clicky

    its for windows and needs something for Japanese characters, play around a bit and you can figure out what stuff does(the computer screen button can scan qr code that are currently on your screen)

    try it

    I'm trying PHP, so my code can probably be labelled "bad and insecure"

    There used to be a firefox add-on that I used for a while, but it's not been updated and doesn't work with the 3.x branch.

    Here's a lot of options for you: http://www.linux.com/archive/feature/126948

    I think the package "qrencode" would fit the bill. It's command-line only, but it's simple.

    Re: QR Code Generator Application

    Hate to bring back a dead thread, but I was looking for the same thing.
    Read the thread, and this is what I came up with.
    It's a quick, dirty, hammered out script, but it works for me.

    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    
    me=`whoami`
    outpath=`zenity --entry --title="Save path?" --text="What folder would you like to save the QR image to?  Default of /home/$me/Pictures will be used if one is not entered."`
    button0=$?
    if [ $button0 -eq 0 ];then
    if [ -z $outpath ];then
    outpath=/home/`whoami`/Pictures
    fi
    pname=`zenity --entry --title="What filename?" --text="What name should be used for the output?  ex: filename > filename.png"`
    button1=$?
    if [ $button1 -eq 0 ];then
    if [ -z $pname ];then
    zenity --info --title="Failure" --text="You failed to enter a filename. Exiting."
    else
    content=`zenity --entry --title="Content --" --text="What do you want your QR code to say?"`
    button2=$?
    if [ $button2 -eq 0 ];then
    if [ -z $content ];then
    zenity --info --title="Failure" --text="You failed to enter any content. Exiting."
    else
    qrencode -o "$outpath"/"$pname".png "$content"
    zenity --info --title="Finished --" --text="Your QR code is located at : $outpath/$pname.png"
    fi
    else
    zenity --info --title="Canceled" --text="QR code generation canceled - content"
    fi
    fi	
    else
    zenity --info --title="Canceled" --text="QR code generation canceled - filename"
    fi
    else
    zenity --info --title="Canceled" --text="QR code generation canceled - file path"
    fi

    I know theres no comments... Like I said, quick and dirty.

    Re: QR Code Generator Application

    attached is a program that can generate qr-codes as you type.
    it works completely offline.

    you need to have "python-qrencode" installed. either install it using apt-get/synaptic (but it is only in debian, not in ubuntu) or use the the attached packages (works for lucid) or build it from source (works for jaunty, karmic).

    ps: feedback is welcome, see mail addresses in source code or post here.
    code can be cloned via git clone git://devzero.de/cutercode

    @admins:
    Sorry for up some old thread, but I really need to thank for this great app nailora creates.

    @nailora:
    THX!!! This app you make is so simple, but so effective that now I even don't need use wine to run windows QRcode generators anymore. *__*
    Micro$oft gives you Windows.
    Ubuntu gives you the whole f*cking house!!
