This error is due to missing fonts in reportlab package.

You can download fonts from : Download and uncompress in /path/to/your/python/site-packages/reportlab/fonts

Uncompress this in /path/to/your/python/site-packages/reportlab/fonts

Restart your OpenERP server and try to create barcode. It might help you .
