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
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?
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?
