Dymo label printer with Raspberry pi

  1. 8 months ago

    Hello,
    I want to use Dymo label printer with Raspberry pi and send command from XOJO application to print label on it with Barcode
    So basically my flow is like following :
    XOJO application -> Raspberry pi -> Dymo label printer -> Output => printed label with Barcode

    Does anyone know how to do that?

    Nice idea. I could use it too. Think you need driver Linux software from Dymo and make sure it gets recognized as usb-device by the Linux distribution on the PI.

  3. My configuration is like following,
    iPAD device with XOJO app -> Raspberry pi -> Dymo label printer
    Linux drivers of Dymo label printer are installed on Raspberry pi.
    Now, I am thinking to create console app which will run on linux(Raspberry pi) which is going to send command to Dymo label printer. That console app is going to called from iPAD application.
    Now I see the problem of creating label from console app and send it to Dymo label.
    We used these methods in Windows using OLE object, on MAC using JAVA script but for Linux. they said to use pdf libraries, so here I stuck
    Please help me to sort out this, or let me know if any other solution is there
