Question about Zebra LP 2844 Thermal Printer

Eltron 2844 CTP Printer on Ubuntu

Hi,

I need to get an Eltron 2844 CTP Thermal Printer working under Ubuntu.
The actual printer model is "UPS LP2844PSAT", part no: "120625-005".

Zebra (who apparently now owns Eltron) has only Windows drivers on their site, and the printer wasn't in Ubuntu's "Foomatic" driver database.

Does anyone know how to get this working, or where I can find a .pdd file?

The printer supports usb/parellel/serial.

Thanks!

    Thanks Steve,

    The driver you recommend does work for the most part. It seems to scale down the printout though. It looses about 1/8" for every inch of height. Will that adversely affect barcode reading if the barcode shrinks some?

A printer,s ink pad is at the end of its service life


This means the waste ink collection sponge is full. This counter can be reset but it is strongly recommended to replace the ink pad as you will end up with a large amount of ink spilt on your desk if you continue to use the printer after the pads lifespan. It can be quite a large job to change depending on the model. If the printer is not an expensive model it may be more cost effective and less messy to simply replace it with a similar model.

Do you have a CD to install this printer? if you do go into MY COMPUTER where you can erase things and erase the printer and its system then shut computer off and restart then reinstall the printer using your CD to reinstall it. Some times you have to delete things and reinstall them to work.

Printer won't recognize cartridge


I had the same problem. I'm not sure but I think I replaced the cartridges when the printer was on because I turned the printer off and removed one of the cartridges. When I turned the printer back on it recognized that cartridge but not the others. I turned the printer off again, rmoved all cartiridges and put them back in when the printer was still off. When I turned the printer on again I had no problems. So...try turning off the printer, rmove all cartridges, then put them back in and restart printer. Hope this works for you .

Samsung kicked out hp 3in 1 printer already installed


Don't have your HP designated as the default printer (if possible)when you hook up the Samsung. When the Samsung is hooked up it sees the HP is the default printer. Well it can't have that, they discard the HP drivers. What does Samsung care about HP drivers theres only one printer port setup and thats the USB port you have them sharing. So yes you need to get a second cable. Tim
