Apparently the cups driver (
ppd) for Ubuntu (in both Karmic and
Jaunty) is not installed by default, see
The strange thing is that if you look at openprinting.org, it says
Dymo LabelWriter 400
Supplied with CUPS Works perfectly.
Supplied with cups??? Works perfectly?? How, where, when??
% apt-get source cups % ls -l cups-1.3.9/ppd/dymo.ppd -rw-rw-r-- 1 miekg miekg 24K Nov 27 2007 cups-1.3.9/ppd/dymo.ppd
And that’s your
ppd file. For good measure I’ve put this up
for download here too.
I’m using this myself and it indeed works correct. When configuring
your printer in
cups you need to click use custom ppd file or
something like that.
