[texhax] pst-barcode with pdflatex

After several hours I've got it working, hurrah :-)

I did try lots of things but I think the following were important:

1. Running 'sudo texhash' after I made sure I had all the right files in place

2. Making sure I use the correct compilation order (in Kile):

Compile LaTex

Viewing the pdf I finally see a QR code :-)

Thank you all very much for your helpful suggestions.

Best, Carl

It's not necessary to specify a driver.  It's loaded automatically.
If dvips.def wasnt't loaded, then probably pdflatex instead of pdftex
was used.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
