Some (possibly) helpful files. (I forgot how helpful.)

examples

Some examples.

Some Note

  • Dymo Linux driver can be downloaded here.

  • This tutorial is quite helpful to understand how to set-up Dymo printer for Raspberry Pi.

  • You need to obtain a font file by a legal way.

  • You may need to install some software packages (e.g. ImageMagick).

  • You can attach a button switch to start printing. The GPIO number, which is connected to the switch, is defined by PORT in printdatetime_server. Please also refer tutorials like this.

  • You can utilize more sophisticated library to monitor GPIO.

  • If you want, please freely fork this Git repo. :)
