DYMO 4XL on Ubuntu 14.04

Prerequisites

Set up CUPS driver

Download the Linux toolkit from DYMO

Extract

change to directory of extracted files

configure the CUPS driver

compile the driver

install the driver

Now you can go to http://127.0.0.1:631 and add the printer. Use your Ubuntu username and password when it asks you for admin login. If everything went as it should, when choosing the 4XL’s driver, you should see a big list of DYMO printers.

Lots of DYMO label printers to choose from, thanks to the DYMO Toolkit we just installed!

  1. Hi, I tried this and I dont see the 4xl drivers. I only see “dymo label printer (en)”. I’m not sure how to fix this. I think its due to the fact that when I did sudo make there were several errors with red text. Any ideas? Thanks!
