On a related note to this software centre and apt-cache search qrcode
comes up with the following

libgd-barcode-perl - Library to create barcode images (GD::Barcode)
librqrcode-ruby - Ruby library for encoding QRCode (2D barcodes)
librqrcode-ruby-doc - Ruby library for encoding QRCode (2D barcodes)
librqrcode-ruby1.8 - Ruby library for encoding QRCode (2D barcodes)
librqrcode-ruby1.9.1 - Ruby library for encoding QRCode (2D barcodes)
libtext-qrcode-perl - module for generating text base QR Code

so are there any actual applications on Linux to read them.
