Receipt Printer and DYMO LabelWriter Installations

As many of you might already know, Craig and I have been installing the offline circulation software that will be used with Koha.  If we haven't contacted your library to install the software, we will soon. 

We have also been installing EPSON receipt printer drivers for the TM-U200 model.  We will not be installing drivers for the EPSON TM-U220 printers until after Dynix has been taken down.  This is because installation of the EPSON TM-U220 driver interferes with the Generic/Text Only driver that is required for Dynix.

For those libraries that have purchased the new Star TSP100 receipt printers, you can call the Help DeskMH900438370  or PC Technicians at any time to have them installed.  Before calling, please connect the receipt printer to your PC with the USB cable provided.  You can also plug the power cable into the printer ahead of time, but please do not plug the power cable into the power outlet.  There is a software installation CD in the box that you can have ready.

Most libraries have also purchased DYMO LabelWriters.  You can call to have these installed at any time.  Like with the receipt printers, please have the DYMO connected to the PC with the USB cable that is provided.  Also have the power cable plugged into the printer and have the software CD ready. 

Just in case you're wondering, the Star receipt printers will not work with Dynix.  This means you will have two receipt printers connected to the PC until Dynix has been retired. 

Please call to have the Star printers and DYMO LabelWriters installed at least a week before the new Koha Go Live date of February 14th.  Your cooperation is appreciated and will decrease the amount of time you're on the phone during the installs.  Let me know if you have any questions.
