The best and simplest way to create and use excellent ISBN barcode is 
with a stand-alone program like bookland.py. It would be nice if a 
progam was all integrated nicely into Scribus and had all the needed 
features but apparently it isn't and hasn't. So create the ISBN 
barcode image with or without price code extension using another 
program or online facility  and then import the resulting eps and 
place it where needed.  You may have to disable automatic resizing or 
make sure the new size is very close to the original size. 

That is the fastest, safest and surest way home.  In the meantime good 
people are working to make things better. You can check back from 
time to time on their progress.
