Hello all,

I am using Fedora Core Linux 4.0 GTK 2.0.
I have to read a 2 D barcode by gtk_entry_get_text command ?
I read the barcode but Ascii 29 GS (group separator) character is skipped.
I should read the GS character.

Do you know a way to handle this ????

ASCII 26 is a character that does not print.
Possible workaround would be to substitute it with something else before putting into the gtk_entry_get_text() function.
