Package: kbarcode
Version: 2.0.5-1
Severity: normal

The error message "Can't connect to database" is unhelpful.  Using
tcpdump, I discovered the real error message was:

Access denied for user 'supaplex'@'' to database 'mysql'

I already have a user setup with proper permissions to the kbarcode
database. Only the schema remains to be inserted.

The 'test settings' gives a false sense of assurance.

imo there should be different (and optional) steps for creating the
user, the database, and adding the schema.  The program should also tell
you what it's going to do, and why.
