Re: Installing Epson printer TM-m30

@scruss - Will the method you posted still work? I'm pretty sure the zj58 driver won't work. The Epson driver for download only supports x86 / x86_64, so no joy on a Raspberry Pi. This might work, but it's a very simple driver: https://github.com/plinth666/epsonsimplecups Yes, it's for the T20, but ...

Re: Installing Epson printer TM-m30

Those drivers from Epson won't work - they call themselves source, but they're x86 and x86_64 binary. And copying PPD files alone does nothing: at best, it does harm. Someone's going to come along and suggest the zj58/zj80 driver: this will not work . I know it will not work because I picked up an E...

Well I guess this printer is not going to work for our project.
Can you suggest me any budget printer under $50 for label printing that will work on a raspberry pi4 ?

Re: Adafruit Project - Networked Thermal Printer CUPS with Raspberry Pi - Jessie or latestest Rasbian?

Linux is case sensitive, like traditional Unix. Mac OS is not (generally) case sensitive. So ZJ58 ≠ zj58 on Linux. Since Adafruit knocked off most of their tutorial from me, and I haven't been interested in tiny thermal printers for a while, don't expect too many updates from The Big A ☺ OP: No reas...

Re: Driver for ZJ9200 Label printer.

The ZJ-58 driver mentions that the 58mm labels are printed at 203 DPI. The ZJ-9200 specs page also mentions 203 DPI with the same ESC/POS commands. I'd say give that driver a go with the 58mm label settings and see if your printer is just a scaled up version of the ZJ-58.
