I am using Odoo v8

I need to send the tickets directly from the Point of Sale to an ESC/POS printer.

I was wondering if the only chance to print in a ESC/POS printer is to use the PosBox to print tickets directly from Odoo or if there is another way.

The PosBox is a little hardware box based on a Raspberry-Pi that will handle all the peripherals' drivers and setup in a very easy way

enter image description here

So my main question is:

  • How could I create a Virtual ESC/POS Printer? I would like to use something similar to the Virtual PDF printer, in order to print the tickets to PDF and make some test while I am programming. Is that possible?

Other questions:

  • What is there in the PosBox image ("Raspberry Pi Image") to make it work everything out of the box?

  • If I have the ESC/POS printer correctly installed and connected to a computer with Windows System. The Odoo Server is accessed remotely from this computer. Could this work or the use of the PosBox is mandatory?

  • You would need to have one for the testing IMO to be practical, as often those printer come with an addon, a small feet with a display, on the same interface (to display price, etc..) I would got one on ebay – yagmoth555 Dec 26 '17 at 14:05
