    Thanks for the tutorial. I've made a script that automates the process. You can add the script to your menu or make a .desktop file for it (be sure to launch it in terminal):

    imageviewer=eog # <=could use anything: gwenview, gimp, gthumb...
    qrpath=/home/lapinot/Desktop # <=enter the directory you want the encoding to happen
    read -p "Enter QR message: " message
    qrencode -o $qrpath/qr.png "$message"
    #sleep 10
    $imageviewer $qrpath/qr.png
    rm $qrpath/qr.png

    There's apps on most recent phones that can read and handle several different kinds of qrcodes, for example, you can create a phone contact item with a qrcode, after scanning, the user will be able to add the contact he just scanned. And for those that don't know, QR = quick response, and it usually is.

    Thx for the tip. btw any idea where about steps to read QR on a digital camera so to replicate it or print it in the desktop with the above Linux QRENCODE piece of software ?
