  1. Does this work with the JavaScript library?

  2. Dear Dymo,

    I’m trying to get a LabelWriter450 to print labels at a reasonable speed in Ubuntu 11.10
    As it stands now it takes about 10 seconds to print a single label. In Windows it prints in a fraction of a second.
    We need printing in linux because we will eventually have a setup with several print servers connected to several labelwriters in an assembly line.

    Here is what happens:
    In one terminal I do:
    lpr -o PageSize=w162h90 test.txt

    I another:
    cat /sys/kernel/debug/usb/usbmon/3u

    This is sent over the wire instantly:

    Then this is sent, all at once. At the same time, the label prints.

    Now the label has been print mostly but the roll needs to be advanced before the label can be torn off.

    These again one per second.

    ffff88000b062a80 3329158770 C Bo:3:004:2 0 2 >

    Then this is sent and the roll is advanced to the point where we can use the label.
    ffff88000b280600 3331657756 S Bo:3:004:2 -115 2 = 1b45

    It looks like a timeout issue to me. Is there something we can do about it?

    • Printing from Ubuntu 11.04 to my DYMO LabelWriter 450 Twin Turbo does not take longer than printing from Windows.

      I am using the following command:
      lpr PageSize=w79h252 test.txt

      Is there a delay as well when printing a “Test Page” within the printer properties?

      • Hi Pi,

        thanks for your reply!

        The “print test page” function in the properties dialog behaves the same way. It takes about 10 seconds. Some 7 before it starts at all and then it prints about half the label. Waits another 3-4 seconds and then it prints the rest.

        What can you deduce from this behaviour?

        • Are you using Ubuntu or Ubuntu server? Is the printer locally attached? What kind of LabelWriter 450 are you using? Are you able to print locally to a locally attached LabelWriter 450 using Ubuntu?

          • Hi Pi,

            I’m on Ubuntu Desktop. Kernel 3.0.0-16-generic 64 bits.
            The printer is locally attached via USB.
            The model number is: 1750111.
            Serial number is: 1750111-2117415.
            I’m using Dymo brand labels type 11354.

            The printer works ok. It is just very slow, about 1 label every 10 seconds.

            Best regards,

            Freek

          • I am on Ubuntu 11.04 (kernel 2.6.38-13-generic 32 bits). I don’t encounter any delays when printing to a DYMO LabelWriter 450, DYMO LabelWriter 450 Turbo, and DYMO LabelWriter 450 Twin Turbo. Do you see a delay on other DYMO printers as well? Have you tried a different PC and a different USB cable?

          • Good news:

            The printer is fast on my collegue’s computer. He is also on 32 bits ubuntu 11.04.
            I have also tried a different cable but that didn’t make a difference.
            I’ll try to boot a 32 bit livecd of 11.10 and see what that does. But that will be tomorrow, it’s end of the day here.

            Thanks for the help!

          • I am able to reproduce the problem on Ubuntu 11.10. It seems something is broken on 11.10 since there isn’t any performance problem on 11.04.

          • Ok great that you have reproduced it. I’ll hold off on making the livecd and work with 11.04 for now.

            Would you be so kind as to post a comment here when/if you find out what the problem was?

            Thanks again for your help! Now I at least know that it wasn’t something I did wrong.

          • It is not a CUPS 1.5.0 issue since it is working with openSUSE 12.1. It looks like an Ubuntu 11.10 bug.

          • It is an Ubuntu 11.10 feature since the “usb” backend of CUPS has no backchannel support in Oneiric (11.10). This problem will fixed in Precise (12.04).

          • Ok, thank you for finding this out. I’ll just avoid 11.10 for now!

            I really appreciate that you invested all the effort to sort this out for me!

            best regards!

            Freek Zindel

          • It is working with Ubuntu 12.04 BETA again. I guess that it will work with Ubuntu 12.04.

        • Hello
          I have the same problem on raspbian. if i do
          lpr -Pdymo file.pdf
          it is ok
          if i do
          lpr -Pdymo file1.pdf, file2.pdf
          it take 10 seconds to print the 2 labels. first print imeddiately and second wait 6-8 seconds
          Any idea ?
          Thank you

          • I don’t have raspbian and we haven’t tested our drivers on raspbian.

            The issue above has been caused by missing CUPS back channel support and has been fixed with a more recent Ubuntu version.

            Therefore I would try with the latest raspbian version.

  3. Is there a dll available that could translate the “.label” files to an image?

    I am looking for lightweight optimization in printer speed across all platforms. I would prefer to do this without full blown gui software.
    Currently have a network of customers consisting of 2,900+ LabelWriter printers printing 67,000+ labels per week and growing.

  4. hi,
    I try to install dymo cup driver for “dymo labelmanager pnp” on debian squeeze. When I try to print page test (pdf, image or text) from cups or other program, i get this error:

    /usr/lib/ups/filter/pdftoroaster failed.

    Also, I don’t know the right URI for pnp on CUPS, I tryed this: “usb://DYMO/LM-PNP” , it’s right? how to fix the pdftoroaster issue? This is my conf:

    dymo-cups-drivers-1.4.0.5
    CUPS: 1.4.4-7+squeeze1
    ghostscript: gs 8.71

    tank you.

    • The current Linux SDK does not support the DYMO LabelManager PnP. Please check the DYMO_SDK_for_Linux document for the supported DYMO printers.

      • There is an lmpnp.ppd file :( . It ‘a shame that there is not a driver for label manager pnp. there is another way to use this device on linux? It will take a long time before it is released?It’s planned?

        • The DYMO LabelManager PnP has 2 USB configuration and each configuration is a composite device. The first and default USB configuration reports as a HID interface and a MAS interface. The second USB configuration reports as a printer interface, a HID interface and a MAS interface. Therefore custom software is required to tell the LabelManager PnP to start the second USB configuration in order to print.

          • I try to switch off uneeded usb storage drive to leave only printer usb. I try to use USB_ModeSwitch (http://www.draisberghof.de/usb_modeswitch/#usage) with this rule:

            —————————————————————————————————————————-

            # To Printer mode:

          • The idProduct of the 2nd USB configuration is 0x1002.

  5. Hello, our work uses dymo label printers to barcode stock as it’s processed. Now, we currently have our labels printed via a web browser which requests the label from the server, the response looks something like this:

    codemessagemessagelabels

    This triggers a label to be printed with a set template. Now, I am considering a move to linux, and to an open source browser to add extra functionality, such as automated data entry. How exactly do I implement this? Add code into the browser? Is there a way to get this server response to trigger a label within linux?

    • [code]<methodResponse><params><param><value><struct><member><name>code</name><value><string>message</string></value></member><member><name>message</name><value><string></string></value></member><member><name>labels</name><value><struct><label id="683841 GBM12353-1"><tamsid value="683841"/><tamscode value="683841*12480"/><loadcode value="GBM12353-1"/><desc1 value="Computer-PC Hp DC7700 Core 2 Duo 1866MHz"/><desc2 value=" 2048MB 0GB HDD DVD-RW/CD-RW NIC:On Boar"/><serial value="aud71705wq"/></label></struct></value></member></struct></value></param></params></methodResponse>

      • DYMO provides CUPS drivers for printing. But the DYMO JavaScript library isn’t supported on Linux.

        • So I assume that I’ll need to perhaps put code in the browser to catch the server response, place the elements into the template, and then send code off via cups to print the label?

  6. I downloaded and installed the SDK for Linux version 1.4.0.5, but i dont find the PPD files for the Dymo LabelManager 420P (which i bought because there should be some Cups Drivers for it, according to http://var.dymo.com/US/resources/sdk/linux/ )

    Could you please give me a hint?

    Thanks in advance and best regards, Mathias

    • The PPD file for the DYMO LabelManager 420P is called LM420p.ppd. But the DYMO LabelManager PnP as well as the 420P have 2 USB configuration. The first and default USB configuration reports as a HID interface and a MAS interface. The second USB configuration reports as a printer interface, a HID interface and a MAS interface. Therefore custom software is required to tell the LabelManager 420P to start the second USB configuration in order to print.

      There is already a comment about this topic. The USB_ModeSwitch (http://www.draisberghof.de/usb_modeswitch/#usage) is working according to that customer.

      The DYMO LabelManager PnP Product ID of the 2nd USB configuration is 0×1002
      The DYMO LabelManager 420P Product ID of the 2nd USB configuration is 0×1004

  7. Is the JavaScript library still not supported?

  8. The link to the sdk page is broken. Only the sdk link works. Where is the documentation?

  9. Is printing of DieCutLabel XML labels at all possible on linux?

    • Hi,

      Die cut label printing is supported by our linux SDK. You can take a look at the Sample file included in the SDK for examples on how to print these labels.

  10. Hello,

    I have trouble with Cups 2.2.x. Firstly, there were a couple of errors at compilation, which could be fixed by including where necessary:

    Secondly, after fixing the compilation issue, the printer doesn’t work. No error is reported and the driver seems working fine from the logs. But the printer (LabelWriter PnP) remains impassibly silent and nothing comes out of it. It was working before the upgrade to Cups 2.2.x.

    How to debug / check if the usb communication between the host and the printer works fine? Is there some kind of self-test in the driver?

    • What Linux version are you running? Is CUPS 2.2 supported on your Linux version? Are you able printing to other printers? Is there a special reason why you are running CUPS 2.2?

      I am running Ubuntu 16.04 and the latest CUPS version is 2.1.3. The Linux SDK is compiling just fine with out any issues. What compiler errors are you getting? Have you tried to run drivers compiled against CUPS 2.1 on 2.2?

      I assume that you are referring to LabelManager PnP since LabelWriters are our die-cut (pre-sized) label printers. I am not sure how you have fixed your compiling errors. But make sure that you don’t mix LabelWriter and LabelManager code.

      Finally the DYMO LabelManager PnP has 2 USB configuration and each configuration is a composite device. The first and default USB configuration reports as a HID interface and a MAS interface. The second USB configuration reports as a printer interface, a HID interface and a MAS interface. Therefore custom software (e.g. USB_ModeSwitch) is required to tell the LabelManager PnP to start the second USB configuration in order to print. Please see the responses of this blog post for more details.

  11. Hello,

    What should I do?

    • ppd_file_t is defined in “cups/ppd.h”.

      Please make sure that this file has been installed and that this file contains the definition for ppd_file_t.

      If you can’t find this header file or the definition is missing then install libcups2-dev package.

  12. I found this file. It was in /usr/include/cups/ppd.d

    Then I grep’ed this file to find the ppd_file_t. Here the output:

    Also I tried to find libcups2-dev for fedora, but can’t. I found just cups-libs. What the difference between them?

    • Please run automake and autoconf before you run ./configure and then make.

      I am not sure if “_PPD_DEPRECATED” will generate an error or just a warning. In the past it used to generate a compiler warning.

      What CUPS version are you running?

      • I did autoconf and automake before ./configure. So when I ran autoconf it works fine. But problem appeared when I tried to start automake. Here a piece of log:

        I googled this wraning and found that it can solve by this change:
        I did it in configure.ac

        +++ AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE([subdir-objects])
        --- AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE(dymo-cups-drivers, 1.4.0.5)

        Also I changed Makefile.am and added there a string:

        AUTOMAKE_OPTIONS=subdir-objects

        After that, automake worked fine. Then I started ./configure it worked fine too. And, then I tried to start make again. At first it was looking good, but then… Here all log messages after make command:

        Also, I have 2.2.0 CUPS version.

  13. I am able to print a single label using the command “lp -o DymoPrintQuality=Text -o PageSize=w54h144 -o landscape -n 1 -d Dymo400Turbo /tmp/test.txt”

    When I try “lp -n 2 -o DymoPrintQuality=Text -o PageSize=w54h144 -o landscape -n 1 -d Dymo400Turbo /tmp/test.txt” the -n option is ignored and it prints just 1 label.

    I have tested lp with the -n option printing to a non Dymo printer and -n is respected.

    Is there another way to print multiple lables?

    • Hi John,

      You can pretty easily write a simple program or script using our SDK to print multiple labels.

      Hope this helps,
      Ron

      • Hi Ron,
        If there is a SDK for Linux for writing scripts, could you tell me where to find it? http://www.dymo.com/en-US/dymo-label-sdk-and-cups-drivers-for-linux-dymo-label-sdk-cups-linux-p--1 contains the needed Cups drivers as well as various pieces of C sample code. I didn’t find anything for scripting.

        Of course it is easy to wrap the lp call in a loop, but that’t not as efficient.

        Perhaps I should word my question more clearly: Is there a way to make the Dymo printer respect the -n parameter?

        You may have noticed there is an error in my second example – the correct example is “lp -n 2 -o DymoPrintQuality=Text -o PageSize=w54h144 -o landscape -d Dymo400Turbo /tmp/test.txt”. This prints one label, not two.

        • Hi John,

          The Linux SDK only provides CUPS driver source code for the DYMO printers, some sample sources and some documents. There isn’t any script support.

          I guess you have to go with the lp or lpr command. Have you tried the -n parameter without any space between -n and the number of copies (e.g. -n2)?

          Thanks,
          Philipp

          • Hi Philipp,
            Thanks for the help. I tried the -n parameter without the space, it still only prints 1 copy.
            Regards,
            John

          • Hi John,
            You need to change *cupsManualCopies: False to True in the corresponding /etc/cups/ppd/DYMO_Printer_Name.ppd file. Make sure to restart cups or Linux before trying the multi-copy command.
            Hope that helps,
            Philipp

          • Hi Philipp,
            Perfect, *cupsManualCopies: True solved the problem. It there some reason it was False?
            Anything I need to look out for?

            Thank you very much for the help.
            Regards,
            John
