QR Code Generator Plasmoid
KDE Plasma 4 Extensions
Score 61%
Description:

The QR Code Plasmoid is a plasmoid for KDE 4 that enables the user to quickly
export some selected text in the form of a QR Code.
The purpose is to be able to quickly copy and paste text from the computer to
a mobile phone or other devices.

This plasmoid requires the libqrencode library and doesn't use any web services
so it can work offline.

The best way to use it is to add the Plasmoid to your task bar, not directly
on the desktop.


Features:
---------

- Encode text into a QR Code with a single click
- The text can be taken from the current selection or clipboard
- Save the QR code as image file by clicking on it


Requirements:
-------------

- qrencode library (http://fukuchi.org/works/qrencode/index.en.html)


How to install:
---------------

You can either use the link below to find packages for your distro, or download the source and compile it this way:

mkdir build && cd build
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix` ..
make
sudo make install


Another way is to add my OBS repository: http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/PVince81:/projects/
if it has your distro listed. The repository also contains a build of qrencode.

Thank you. Your Plasmoid QR Code Generator is good. But can I use it to creat other 2d barcode?

...every generated QR code contains text that starts with the words "´╗┐QRGenConfigDialog constructor" and I can't find the part in the sources where that might come from... any ideas?

I don't know why this low rating. It works as need, easy install (gentoo). Its not wrapper of google api. Code is straight and ok, some doc (at least there is).

So its overall 85% from me, since it's the only plasmoid I found and easy to use. The TODO list is valid btw. hope you will work on it.

Thanks a lot for your comment.
I'm glad to hear that my plasmoid is useful :-)

The reason I wrote it is also because I didn't like to have to be online to generate QR codes.

Yea, even these days, I always prefer applications running on my computer (of course there are many exceptions, but not with this type of things). Because I can't rely on provider of content, nor on my ISP. So yea, it's useful for me, even when I'm online and don't want enter long urls via (touch)screen.
