With regard to the printer you are using, can you provide a link or some 
document which gives their requirements. We have designed Scribus to be 
completely compatible with modern print work flows.

Second, you might be better to import the barcode directly as EPS, which then 
become native vector objects.

In any case, please feel free to join us on IRC or mail me directly with your 
files for testing.
