When scanning an EAN-8 barcode containing the 8 digits 00032605 ubuntu incorrectly returns 0003265 while windows correctly return 00032605. The last digit 5 is a check-digit.

Are there any configuration I should know about? Please help!

Page 22, language support - change it from default USA to UK.

Hope it helps!
