TBarCode/X - Barcode Software for UNIX®, Linux® and Mac OS X®

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


TBarCode/X offers users, administrators and software developers versatile bar code printing functionality on Linux, UNIX and OS X 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® ERP, 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

Shared Library for Software Developers

LibTBarCode is an extensive program library for bar code generation in Bitmap, PostScript/EPS, PDF, AI and PCL format. This shared library is directly integrated into your software or can be used via the tbarcode command line tool.

The TBarCode/X barcode software enhances conventional (client or server based) applications as well as web applications (PHP, Perl, Java...) with a powerful "bar code engine".

Cross platform applications can be developed with LibTBarCode in an elegant manner. With a few exceptions, the API is compatible with TBarCode DLL, our Barcode Library for Windows.

In our barcode software download area you will find prepared binaries for current platforms. If you are interested in a specific platform, please contact us. If possible, we provide a suitable "build" for you.
