Linux and Mac OS X Drivers Now Available for Sato Printers

Posted May 30, 2013

SATO CL408e Barcode PrinterStart using Sato printers in any software environment with the first ever Linux and OS X compatible drivers.

Extending the compatibility to include additional operating systems gives users greater flexibility when choosing the products from which they drive SATO printers.

Linux and OS X users can now integrate thermal printing seamlessly into their computing system for simple and convenient support of SOHO (small office home office) and enterprise based printing needs. These SATO drives are currently available for the CL4e/CL6e, CG2/CG4 and M84Pro series printer models.

The SATO drivers easily integrate into the Linux-based PC or Mac set-up for general purpose printing functions utilizing the CUPS printing system. The driver currently supports the following major Linux distributions: Red Hat (.rpm), Ubuntu (.deb), and tar.gz for generic distribution installations. Addressing the requirements of the rapidly growing Linux and Mac communities, the list of supported printers will continue to expand.

SATO is committed to making its thermal printing technology accessible to users of all types of platforms. This year, SATO created its first Mac compatible thermal drive for the CG2/CG4, M84Pro and CL6e printer models. “Creation of these drivers is one more example of how we continue to expand our compatibility to meet the evolving needs of our consumers,” said Stephen Hull, product development manager.
