This driver is free software.
Type: Filter

Generic Instructions: CUPS, PPR, LPD/LPRng/GNUlpr, PDQ, no spooler, PPD aware applications/clients,

Important for Windows clients: The CUPS PostScript driver for Windows has a bug which makes it choking on PPD files which contain GUI texts longer than 39 characters. Therefore it is recommended to use Adobe's PostScript driver. If you still want to use the CUPS driver, please mark "GUI texts limited to 39 characters" to get an appropriate PPD file.

This driver is a little bit special, the printer is connected by the serial port and the driver asks the printer which model it is. So the connection between driver and printer must be bidirectional. With LPD this is no problem, it issues the command line shown here under "Execution Details" plus a " > DEVICE" where DEVICE is the /dev file for the serial port where the printer is connected to. CUPS passes the output of the driver command line shown here through a backend filter which does not support bidirectional access. Use the "Device" option to send the output directly to the /dev file. Give read/write access to the user "lp" to make this possible. If the desired device is not under the choices, use the "Link stylewriter in dev ..." option and set a link of your device file to /dev/stylewriter.
