Odoo/OpenERP: Picking List printing blank barcode?

Are you facing a problem with bar-code in picking list. Is it displaying nothing?

Reason is: Odoo uses reportlab to print barcode images and reason of showing blank barcode means reportlab fonts are missing.

Follow following steps to install reportlab fonts:

1. Login to your server as root user.

2. Open terminal and go to location: '/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/reportlab/'

Check if 'fonts' directory is there? If not, create it.

3. Go to 'fonts' folder and Download Zip file from here:

i.e $ wget

extract it and delete 

4. Restart your server.

That's it.

Thanks!!!!!!!! Enjoy Programming!!! :)
