cups: usb connected dymo lable writer not detected

Hello and a merry christmas.
Can anybody point me in a direction what I could be looking at to get my LabelWriter working?
Any help or suggestion is appreciated!

cups is running

systemctl status cups
● cups.service - CUPS Scheduler
     Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/cups.service; disabled; vendor preset: disabled)
     Active: active (running) since Mon 2021-12-27 16:32:07 CET; 9min ago
TriggeredBy: ● cups.socket
       Docs: man:cupsd(8)
   Main PID: 525 (cupsd)
     Status: "Scheduler is running..."
      Tasks: 1 (limit: 19060)
     Memory: 17.6M
        CPU: 625ms
     CGroup: /system.slice/cups.service
             └─525 /usr/bin/cupsd -l

Dec 27 16:32:06 marschall systemd[1]: Starting CUPS Scheduler...
Dec 27 16:32:07 marschall systemd[1]: Started CUPS Scheduler.

The device is connected

lsusb

Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub

Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

cups has permissions to see it (temporarily all do)

ls -l /dev/bus/usb/001/002 
crw-rw-rw- 1 cups lp 189, 1 Dec 27 16:31 /dev/bus/usb/001/002

dymo cups drivers are installed via yay

aur/dymo-cups-drivers-git r27.3986268-1 (+0 0.00) (Installed)
    Unofficial copy of Dymo's CUPS driver, which seems to have disappeared.

cups does not detect the device as a printer

 lpinfo -v
network lpd
network ipp
network beh
file cups-brf:/
network ipps
network https
network http
network socket
network smb

Thank you in advance!

Re: cups: usb connected dymo lable writer not detected

The official driver hasn't disappeared.
Comments on the aur page indicate it may be hosted somewhere in cloudflare Content Delivery Network*.
There have been reports recently about cloudflare sometimes blocking semi-automated downloads like done by makepkg .

Try downloading http://download.dymo.com/Software/Linux … 4.0.tar.gz directly and put it in the same folder as the PKGBUILD & patch file .


* occasionaly it feels like tarballs are not considered content by CDNs.


Disliking systemd intensely, but not satisfied with alternatives so focusing on taming systemd.

Correct me if I am wrong: I would expect the connection detection to actually be independent of the cups drivers. I will have a look if it makes a difference, but I actually suspect the yay package I installed to be the same driver as stated in the description.

I had issues with cloudflare the last couple of days as well, for example with the super-slicer package.

Re: cups: usb connected dymo lable writer not detected

You installed aur/dymo-cups-drivers-git , the stable one using the official driver is dymo-cups-drivers at https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/dymo-cups-drivers

https://github.com/matthiasbock/dymo-cups-drivers should probably have another name to reflect it is not the original but a fork .

Yes, I understand it is a fork, but looking at the commit history not really one where anything significant was changed.
Anyhow, unfortunately using the source you linked did not make a difference.

The LabelManager PnP requires usb_modeswitch to be installed (and enabled, possibly udevadm control --reload-rules or a reboot )

Still no success.
I can use dymoprint (https://github.com/computerlyrik/dymoprint), but still no luck with cups so far.
