A little experience thay may help you to think about scaling:
I configured a "Dymo LabelWriter 400" without touching any else CUPS preference, then created a Draw document with OpenOffice and drawn a rectangle that fits in the default margins for an A4 sized sheet.
When printed this, the rectangle lines fit in the label area, but only less long than the label. This could be corrected by enlarging the sheet dimension in the application document: 29.7 x 21 cm -> 40 x 21 cm (not exact)
Thanks for the tutorial, it worked perfectly for me. I had to install the packages libcupsimage2-dev and g++ using Synaptic, that was very easy.
Just to say there's an extra step that I did that might help others. After I installed the drivers. I selected the label size like this:
- Open Printers, and double click the Dymo-LabelWriter icon.
- Click "Printer Options" on the left
- Under "Media Size" select the label size you're using from the drop down list.
- Choose the label number that matches the Art. No. marked on the reserve of your label strip, or box, for example, if the Art. No. says 99012, choose 99012 Large Address from the list.
- Click Apply. (Optional - go to Settings and print a test label. I used an old label for this.)
- Close the Dymo-LabelWriter properties dialog and Printers page.
I then installed GLabels using Add/Remove Apps. There's also a slight issue there as well. In the Template Designer, I had to select Mailing/Shipping products from the Category drop down list, brand Dymo and page size Other, before the Dymo templates showed. Then I selected the same label number for my template, 99012, (yours might be different) and checked the Rotate box at the end.
Everything printed fine for me.
Thanks for the help.

I just bought a Dymo Labelwriter 450.
I have a Mac and the installation went great. Put I had to install with the CD-Rom.
So, up to my Ubuntu PC (10.10). Plugged it in and immediately Ubuntu told me it was searching for drivers. Then a pop-up the pick one from the list and done.
I installed Glabel and selected Dymo-->Other-->"your label size".
Tada... My first label from Ubuntu in 2 minutes.
Hmmm... and I thought my Mac was impressive.
I can confirm that this works in Ubuntu 10.04 with Dymo 400. I just..
1. Installed the "LabelWriter/ LabelManager SDK for Linux" from http://sites.dymo.com/DeveloperProgr...SDK_Linux.aspx
2. Installed the Label Writer in Ubuntu
And then I was able to print on Multi purpose labels (dymo 11354) adjusting the page size to the label size with 0,1cm borders in OpenOffice. And it prints really nice!
I couldn't find the correct label size in Glabels.
I'll verify that this works with 10.04 and the Twin Turbo.
i'm just wondering if we can print postage from paypal using this...
I have spend almost 40 labels and it is still not correct. And as in the http://glabels.sourceforge.net/doc/templates-2.0/ is told, the parameters do not add up as it should.
So if anyone can help me out
So it looks like we've got label printing working, but I'm still disappointed that I can't print tapes from my Dymo LaberWriter Duo.

Hello to my fellow penguins!
I've been working as a software QA engineer for Newell Rubbermaid at the DYMO site in Belgium since March 2012, but I'm a Ubuntu user^Wmember since at least 2005 (see my Launchpad profile). So you can sort of say that Linux infiltrated DYMO.
This topic appears in the top results when googling for DYMO+Linux.
I'm not going to give tech support here (there are other and better channels for that) and there are of course things that I can't comment on (Newell Rubbermaid's social media policy, Non-Disclosure Agreement, yada yada yada) but if there is any other way that I can help, gimme a shout and I'll see what I can do.
Meanwhile: rock on!
