The -d parameter specifies the name of device to choose for printing and should match the one you chose while installing the printer.
Printer: Dymo-CoStar LabelWriter | OpenPrinting – The Linux Foundation
Figure 7 shows the plain text version in the app. It wasn’t until later that I discovered that my Ubuntu distribution has an easy-to-install package and that. Additionally, the printer is configured to accept jobs sent to it for printing.
Please execute the command shown below and check, if the result looks similar. Some brief research on Google showed that you need to multiply millimeters by around 1. The stringc method called in line 28 prints the string passed in as its fifth argument in the middle of the PDF document.
The CUPS printing system  uses the lpr command for this:. Magick module as an easy option for converting image formats.
The initial setup on my Windows labelwwriter was easy and printing the first label using the Dymo Label software was no big deal. This is currently version 1.
The -p parameter specifies the display name of the printer, -v is used for the printer address and the -P parameter points to location of the printer definition file.
The LabelWriter Turbo also prints on Linux. Thanks to these simple tricks, the label printer positions both short and slightly longer lines of text with up to 25 characters perfectly at the center of the document; the call to cmd-print fires up the printer, and the label comes flying out. The process for handling non-standard characters, like umlauts, is something special.
Eventually Canon improved their driver and I found a program called blabel for my brother label printer. As far as I can tell, you can download them here:. Perl feeds the address data to the document. The portable Brother label printer wastes expensive raw material for labels. Then, sudo make install installed the CUPS files. The only disadvantage with my label printer is that you can’t buy rugged plastic labels for it. I wasn’t really worried about what professional shippers use these labels for; it was the handy 19x51mm format that interested me.
Once we know the printer address here it is usb: Later I’ve added driver via cups web interface like any other driver, choosing right ppd file. Because the string passed in at the command line is already UTF-8 encoded, but Perl interprets it as ASCII by default, you would normally see the printer output cryptic characters rather than what you wanted if left to its own devices.
Finally references for installing and using Dymo under Linux: Once the drivers were installed I added the printer using the built in Ubuntu add printer wizard and installed glabels. Once you have downloaded the drivers, install libraries, unpack the drivers and then install.
I bought a roll of labels numbered “” featuring return address labels. If not, you can use the instructions given by this blog post. It only does black thermal printing on white paper or transparent film, both of which are self-adhesive.
Maybe this helps someone, who faces the same problems. The labels are shot vertically out of the thermo-printer, so I needed to adjust the lettering to match; in other words, rotated through 90 degrees in landscape.
Luckily, there is a precompiled package available. This is the name you chose while installing the printer.
