    trying to set up raw printer

    ok i have 2 vinyl cutters one i was able to set up as a raw printer. as soon as i plugged it in it found it and i was able to add it as a generic raw.

    the green is the cutter

    i tried different things when i set it up manually

    im little stumped on device URI i found it under dev/serial/by-id/usb-FTDI_FT232R_USB_UART_A9006Med-if00-port0

    so i tried usb://dev/serial/by-id/usb-FTDI_FT232R_USB_UART_A9006Med-if00-port0

    that didnt do it all i get is an error printer not connected

    i also tried serial://........

    it just sits in printer que processing nothing more

    i read some place where the FT232 needs drivers to make it work any luck with any of this

    thanks in advance you all are the best

    Re: trying to set up raw printer

    This is an old post but the bug is still there.
    To use my cutter as a serial printer i had to :

    assign my user to the dialout group :
    Code:
    sudo usermod -a -G dialout #user#
    then change the permission on a cups file :
    Code:
    chmod 700 /usr/lib/cups/backend/serial
    No idea why it solves the issue but then serial ports appear when scanning for printer !
    Found how to solve here : https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/20396
