Duplicate of issue 0015661.

The issue is caused by security related changes introduced in GhostScript 9.27. Barcode works for me in Scribus 1.4.8 when using Ghostscript 9.26 (32bit). Later Ghostscript versions had various changes related to security which prevent us to produce barcodes as we previously did. Our development branch, noticeably Scribus 1.5.6, has had important modifications so as to re-enable production of barcodes. So Scribus 1.5.6(.1) and 1.5.7.svn do not suffer from this issue.
