Dymo labelprinter 450

Post by Cevyn » Wed Sep 19, 2018 10:12 am

Hi,
I have a bit of an odd question and i don't know if this is the corrrect topic to post this.

My boss asked me to set up a Dymo label printer on our business laptop which is currently running Linux Mint 19.3 Cinnamon.
So far i have succeeded in installing the printer, no problem there.

My question is:
We need the labelprinter to print just the current time and date, and if possible with just a click on a link on the desktop.
I have installed Glabels, which according to various forums should be able to do this but i cannot figure out how.
Any creative solutions?

The ideal solution for us would be to have a shortcut on the desktop, that when double clicked will print the label instantly.
Thanks in advance.
Cevyn

Suggestion: I would read up on Glabels to see if they have preset macros (templates?) for that. I know that in Word processors <date> <time> would add the current date and time to letters/documents.

https://glabels.org/

By looking at the screenshot on the first page, it may, and I say MAY just be: ${Date}, ${Time}

If you don't get that Desktop link to work for you,

set up a Keyboard Shortcut do it it...

something like cntl-alt-L meaning Label

I have several keyboard shortcuts to make life easier.

giggle, I think you meant 18.3 Cinnamon, as 19.0 hasn't gotten that far yet :lol:
