SATO America Releases Linux And Mac OS X Drivers For Thermal Printers
CHARLOTTE — May 7, 2013 — SATO America Inc., a pioneer in thermal barcode printing, labeling, and
EPC/RFID solutions, announces the first-ever Linux and Mac OS X drivers developed for use with its
thermal printers. Extending the compatibility to include additional operating systems gives
customers greater flexibility when choosing the products from which they drive SATO printers.
Linux and OS X users can now integrate thermal printing seamlessly into their computing system for simple and convenient support of SOHO (small office home office) and enterprise based printing needs. These SATO drives are currently available for the CL4e/CL6e, CG2/CG4 and M84Pro series printer models.
The SATO drivers easily integrate into the Linux-based PC or Mac set-up for general purpose printing functions utilizing the CUPS printing system. The driver currently supports the following major Linux distributions: Red Hat (.rpm), Ubuntu (.deb), and tar.gz for generic distribution installations. Addressing the requirements of the rapidly growing Linux and Mac communities, the list of supported printers will continue to expand.
SATO is committed to making its thermal printing technology accessible to users of all types of platforms. This year, SATO created its first Mac compatible thermal driver for the CG2 and CG4, M84Pro and CL6e series printer models. "Creation of the Linux driver is one more example of how we continue to expand our compatibility to meet the evolving needs of our consumers," said Stephen Hull, product development manager.
