I was wondering if anyone knew of a linux app that could read qr codes using a webcam. I know about zbar, but it doesn't use a gui so there's no possibility to copy and paste the output.

 

What I'm wanting to do is run an offline ether wallet on a rasberry pi, and I need to swap information between it and my online computer without them actually being connected or using a usb stick. So I need to be able to transfer the to address via  qr code to the rasberry pi. Hope that's about clear as mud. Long story short, I need my rasberry pi to be able to read qr codes, and have the ability to copy and paste them.

there is QTQR, but i am unsure if it is still being developed.

 

You may be stuck on command line for this one or try a tool for windows via WINE

Are you saying there's a way to read QR codes without an actual application?

@aj777:-

 

This might be of some use. As with so much other stuff nowadays, this is an online webapp, accessible via a Google a/c in the Chrome browser.

Worth a look, perhaps?
