    Thanks, updating (after enabling the jaunty-proposed channel) has indeed solved the problem for me, now the printer works fine again, great!

    Re: DYMO label writer How-To

    Did anyone fix the problem with the endless labels printing?

    I used the default Dymo PPD from Jaunty but found no way to switch to error diffusion (half-toning looks sooooo bad!). So I compiled this driver and now I have beautiful error diffusion but printing one label makes the printer print forever... even when printing from Adobe Reader. (I have a LabelWriter 320.)

    I wanted to use this for printing stamps via www.internetmarke.de (there you can put some custom pictures on a stamp and print it yourself).

    Cheers,
    -mARKUS

    P.S.: The "DYMO_SDK_for_Linux.rtf" says:
    The following products can work only when shared over the network from a Windows machine. This is due to limitations in the USB support in these printers – Linux USB support only recognizes fully compliant USB devices.
    -LabelWriter 310
    -LabelWriter 315
    -LabelWriter 320
    -LabelMANAGER 400
    -LabelMANAGER PC
    but Linux DOES recognize the device.

    In other words, whoever wrote the document you quoted is admitting that the device is not fully compliant! The document could have stated:
    The following products can work only when shared over the network from a Windows machine. We could have done the USB implementation correctly, but that would have taken too much time and work. So instead, we cut corners in the USB hardware in the printers and fixed it in the software, but only for Windows.
    I did a quick test a couple of nights ago... I set up new queues, using the HAL layer rather than direct USB.

    Test pages printed, but not at the correct scale, so each test gave me the left-hand edge of the test image spread over several labels and over a length of tape.

    This is promising, though... I hope to get the scaling problem fixed by defining the correct page size for the two queues.

    My terminal outputs the following when I get the install error

    Two questions:
    1. Does this bug log mean that there is no solution for the above problem yet?
    2. Is there a way to get access to v1.0.1 that does work?

    You need to install two packages in order to install the DYMO drivers:
    Code:
    sudo aptitude install libcups2-dev libcupsimage2-dev
    Once you have these two packages the
    Code:
    sudo ./configure
    will run flawlessly.

    Is this tutorial still valid for Jaunty?

    libcairo2-dev is also required to compile.

    Re: DYMO label writer How-To - PERFECT LABELS

    Thanks. Karmic works perfect here's how.

    I went to dymo.com and downloaded the linux drivers and followed your installation instructions.

    Cups automatically recognized my Dymo 330 Turbo, when I added a printer.

    Labels:

    1. Open Software Center
    2. Install glabels program
    3. Open glabels
    4. Goto File then click New (Cntl+ N)
    5. Choose "search all templates" tab (Must do this)
    6. For "Brand" choose "Dymo"
    7. For "Page size" choose "Any"

    This will bring up about a dozen different size Dymo labels. Then just design your label. I don't think you can use a Twin label printer, at least expect both labels to print.

    I'm getting PERFECT LABELS (except driver is not recognizing images for me).

    I added a small text box at the top, then added a horizontal line separating the top and bottom of the label. Then added a large text box for the shipping address. I also added another very small text box inside top left of the large box, for "To:". It looks great!!! for linux anyway. and it prints perfect, even in large bold type.

    Thanks again for the driver install info!!

    Re: DYMO label writer How-To

    Hello,

    I'm running Ubuntu 9.1 with a Dymo 400.

    Installed cups & basically did what's on Dymo's pages and here on the forum.

    At this point, the test labels are fine (99012 - large address). However, I would like to print labels generated online, using a webbrowser like Firefox. This used to work under WinXP, but I can't get it running under Ubuntu 9.1.

    It looks like there's something wrong with margins. Also, I've had the problem of endless printing and wasting labels.

    Hopefully anybody else has some more information.

    Best Regards,

    Re: DYMO label writer How-To

    Really helpful topic. I have somehow managed to print lables now from my Dymo 400. I find it hard to get the perfect template, but I still wanted to share this one for the 99017 labels. (realy tiny ones). This is a pretty workable template, but you will lose a tiny bit on the right.

    Save the following code as "dymo_99017.template" in your ~/.glabels directory.

    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0"?>
    <Glabels-templates xmlns="http://snaught.com/glabels/2.2/">
      <Template brand="Dymo" part="99017" size="Other" width="20mm" height="50mm" description="Test">
        <Label-rectangle id="0" width="11mm" height="50mm" round="2mm" x_waste="0mm" y_waste="5mm">
          <Markup-margin size="0mm"/>
          <Layout nx="1" ny="1" x0="0mm" y0="-5mm" dx="9mm" dy="-10mm"/>
        </Label-rectangle>
      </Template>
    </Glabels-templates>
