A label printer for Linux

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 67.189.33.97] on November 06, 2007 11:19 PM
There are many label printers that you can talk to through a serial port in a common (or at least documented) language. They are usually a little more advanced than this tiny thing, but they're usually higher quality too. Such a printer would be incredibly easy to use in linux (the SafetyPro, DuraLabel and TSC printers come to mind).

As far as software goes, why in the world would you want to print from OO? Most label printers use their own software, even in Windows. For sequencing (or multiple labels as everyone keeps saying), custom s/w or scripting would be quite easy with a serial connection printer.
