I've set up a Raspberry Pi to act as print server for a Dymo 330 Turbo LabelMaker (I did this some time ago using an article from a Dennis Sutanto Technology Blog, but the approach seems basically the same as in the current article.) This setup has been working beautifully for printing labels from a PC. Now, though, I would also like to print from a Debian-based Linux system (LinuxFX, specifically). I can't seem to get this setup to work, and I'm not sure what the problem may be! Under Printer Properties I have:
UPDATE #2 : The DYMO printer works fine when directly connected to the computer via USB, so I guess the problem IS related to the Raspberry Pi print server... Any thoughts/suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Wayne
UPDATE #3: With a fresh install of LinuxFX (based on Ubuntu 20.04) and the latest version of WINE I have been able to install the Dymo LabelMaker software 8.7.3 with (apparently) no errors. The program starts up fine but claims it cannot find the printer even though other programs (including ones running with Wine) can print perfectly well to it.
Does anyone know what is so "special" about Dymo printer requirements? Perhaps some CUPS configuration change is needed, or some special permissions set? Any suggestions at all would be greatly appreciated!
Okay, solved my own problem. I ssh'd into it. It is a Pi 4, 4GB. I have more than one so the device name is simply "raspberrypi41". When I changed the password in raspi-config back to "raspberry" the admin console let me in.
I wonder if this is fixable? The tutorials on installing a pihole mention to NOT have the default login.
I am installed this for my printer Canon MG5150 Series and all working with CUPS, but I can't print from my PC, it doesn't shows me a printer in a list. I am using Raspberry Pi 3B+ and a Windows 10 PC. Please Help. Thanks.
This guide worked for me for HP Laserjet 1006 with some additions. First i had to download, compile and install foo2xqx driver, because CUPS doesn't have driver for 1006.
Second, the method with automatic windows discovery didn't worked very well. The printer was added but printing garbage.
I used the option "the printer i want isn't listed listed", then "select printer by name" and using this address as name http://hostname:631/printers/LaserJet1006 (of course changing hostname to IP of my raspberry )
Thank you for the excellent and easy to follow tutorial Les. I now have my old Samsung ML-1915 printer back up and running in a spare room and happily printing from my iMac, Windows laptop, iOS devices and an old Android tablet. In case anyone else with an aged Samsung printer is having a crack at this project, note that you will need to download some hard-to-find Samsung-specific printer driver software - Splix. After downloading/installing CUPS you'll need to add this: sudo apt install printer-driver-splix
Good luck and happy printing.
