I have a 80 mm thermal USB printer connected to my Ubuntu and it has been automatically detected since I can see its name in the printer list. However, I'm not able to print nothing from gedit (just for a test).
I downloaded the Linux driver from the Manufacturer (Nippon Printer) and it's just a single file libNPrint.so.1.2 without any documentation. How can I install the driver?
Is I launch dmesg -d I get:
[ 422.674671 < 7,758140>] usb 3-3.1: new full-speed USB device number 7 using xhci_hcd [ 427.971019 < 5,296348>] usb 3-3.1: New USB device found, idVendor=1051, idProduct=1000, bcdDevice= 1.00 [ 427.971020 < 0,000001>] usb 3-3.1: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=0 [ 427.971021 < 0,000001>] usb 3-3.1: Product: NII W2K203DPI USB [ 427.971022 < 0,000001>] usb 3-3.1: Manufacturer: NII [ 427.975340 < 0,004318>] usblp 3-3.1:1.0: usblp0: USB Bidirectional printer dev 7 if 0 alt 0 proto 2 vid 0x1051 pid 0x1000
But I still can't print anything.
