I sugest as an alternative the bookland.py program found at:

It provides the optional price code add-on. The current Scribus 
program doesn't. bookland.py runs standalone but someone cleverer 
than I could probably tie it to Scribus. It will generate from either 
10 digit format or 13 digit format and will calculate the check 
digit.  I can enter:
bookland 978-1.60019-001-*  >test.ps
and get a 2007 style barcode and human-readable legend on top. 
Or I can enter  
bookland 978-1.60019-001-*  51995 >test2.ps

and get the same bar code but with the price extension and associated 
bar code. 

The resultant eps file can be imported into Scribus and placed like 
any other graphic.
