I was hoping someone on here who's familiar with zbar could help me install it properly? Here's what happened: (I'm running Stretch on the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B).
I download the file from here: ZBar bar code reader
The downloaded file has a
tar.bz2 extension so I use:
$ tar xvjf zbar-0.10.tar.bz2
to extract it to my desktop.
Then I navigate inside the extracted folder using
$ cd zbar-0.10/
and then I type:
That seems to run with errors exactly like in this post:
After following the above post I use:
sudo apt-get install python-qrtools sudo apt-get install libzbar-dev sudo pip install zbar
However there's a segmentation fault when I try and import zbar the same to what is found here:
after reading that I saw:
'We believe that the bug you reported is fixed in the latest version of zbar, which is due to be installed in the Debian FTP archive'
Surely this would also apply to Raspbian Stretch?
The whole point of this is to somehow get the zbarcam program/code integrated with my script.
If anyone has any experience with this problem or can help I'd love to hear from you.
