Barcode Software for UNIX, Linux and Mac OS_X


TBarCode/X is a bar code generator software designed for UNIX, Linux and Mac OS X systems. The extensive barcode software package contains a spool system filter, a command line tool and a shared library for developers.

Barcode Software for UNIX, Linux and Mac OS X
TBarCode/X offers users, administrators and software developers versatile bar code printing functionality on Mac OS, Linux and UNIX operating systems.

TBarCode/X creates all common bar codes - linear, 2D codes and GS1 DataBar (RSS) - in highest quality.

This bar code software is used in the following areas:

  • Barcode extension for print and spool servers
  • Barcode print server for SAP R/3, ORACLE and other ERP applications
  • Barcode engine for document management requirements and logistics software
  • Barcode printing software for VDA 4902, ODETTE, AIAG B-10 forms
  • Barcode generator for web or mobile phone applications

Barcode Spoolfilter for Printing Server
With TBarCode/X each PostScript or PCL compatible printer is immediately enhanced with barcode printing. This is achieved by hooking up TBarcode/X in the printer queue on system level. This can be done with all spool systems like LPR, LPRng, CUPS, XPrint, etc.

Thus the barcode software TBarCode/X may be transparently combined with ERP systems and applications like SAP R/3 or Oracle


  • The barcode creation is done automatically during spooling/printing
  • No special bar code printers required
  • No further hardware extensions (like barcode DIMMs or SIMMs) or barcode fonts necessary
  • No additional costs per printer or for replacement printers
  • Post-processing requirements like faxing, emailing etc. can be fulfilled
  • Unified control sequences for barcodes
  • Customizable to individual needs
  • New bar code types: DP Postmatrix, QR-Code 2005, ISBN 13, ISBN 13+5, ISMN, ISSN, ISSN+2, USPS Intelligent Mail Barcode.
  • LibTBarCode: The text callback function now supports UNICODE.
  • The module width can now be set in double precision (64 bit floating point).
  • The list of the supported application identifiers (GS1 128) was updated.
  • Check digit method Modulo 10 (Luhn Algorithm) has been added.
  • New installation path: /usr/local/share/tbarcode10.
