I'm using Raspbian Jessie with PIXEl version March 2017, 2017-03-02, kernel 4.4.
I'm already installing CUPS and trying some methods.
The methods that I already try and still did not work :
https://www.howtogeek.com/169679/how-to-add-a-printer-to-your-raspberry-pi-or-other-linux-computer/ Tried to set the printer as Epson 8pin. It works. But the autocutter and cashdrawer did not work.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fGOcgz6z81I (epsonsimplecups) It prints an unknown text... but the cashdrawer function works
Downloaded tmu-cups-220.127.116.11.tar.gz Epson driver from epson-biz and did not work also...........
They can detect the printer, but still can not install the driver properly.
any idea how to make Epson TM-U220 work prooperly on raspbian (also need the cashdrawer and autocutter) ?
Tried PythonESCPOS from https://github.com/python-escpos/python-escpos
But when I tried :
python setup.py build
sudo python setup.py install
It can not works... give me error message...
Here's the error messages :
