Brother Label Printers under Linux?
I was wondering if anyone has any experience with using Brother label printers (like the PT-9500PC, PT-1500PC, ). I'm partial to the PT line, as I already have a PT-1600 that uses TZ-series tapes, and to the 9500PC, as it has an auto-cutter (though the 1500 definitely has a nicer price tag).
I know that there's linux support as per openprinting.org, but what I'm really wondering is what success people have with multiple lines/blocks of text, how formatting is done, bar codes, etc.
Also, how about laying out things like rotate/repeat cable labels, separated port labels, flags, etc.
I'm going to be doing a *big* cabling project soon, with rotate/repeat cable labels, port labels, bar code asset tags, etc. I figured it would be a lot easier to write a script to pull the data right from my asset tracking database and print the labels, rather than printing them all by hand.
