ITK 24i printer USB

Hi all, I'm trying to install a ITK24i thermal printer in a TS7800 by USB. I have taked the drivers from
I've followed the instructions in readme file to install like this and go well,

root@ts7800:itk24i# ./
`' -> `/usr/lib/'
`' -> `/usr/lib/'
Configure shared libraries
`pa_edit_conf' -> `/usr/sbin/./pa_edit_conf'
`pa_paper_prtd' -> `/usr/sbin/./pa_paper_prtd'
`pa_flash_update' -> `/usr/sbin/./pa_flash_update'
`libpa_status.h' -> `/usr/local/include/./libpa_status.h'
`pa_typedefs.h' -> `/usr/local/include/./pa_typedefs.h'
`pa_version' -> `/usr/sbin/./pa_version'
Example start up scripts are available for Redhat and SuSe.
see pa_paper_prt.redhat and pa_paper_prt.suse
Please see demo directory for examples on how to
programmatically print and acquire status from
the printer.

but when try to make a new file configuration the shell returns

root@ts7800:itk24i# pa_edit_conf --new
-bash: /usr/sbin/pa_edit_conf: cannot execute binary file

I've tried with ./, giving all the permission etc but always the same.
The readme file says:
If this is the first time the pa_paper_prt daemon is installed,
you must run pa_edit_conf to create a new printer configuration
file. Issue the command: pa_edit_conf --new

After completing the creation of the printer configuration,
start the daemon with the following command:

for Redhat: (do this as root) service pa_paper_prt start

for SuSe: (do this as root) /etc/init.d/pa_paper_prt start

Could be that the binary file doesn't work with debian?
thanks a lot

You can check the location of the 'pa_edit_conf' file:

linux@debian # locate pa_edit_conf

If it is in /usr/bin, or some other bin or sbin directory, it is probably itself a binary file. If it is in /etc it is probably a shell script, in which case you can look in the file and try to isolate the problem.

Otherwise you can run:

linux@debian # strace <path>/pa_edit_conf

And just let it fly until it stops. Then look back in the stack trace and see which file messed it up. You usually don't need to look back very far. I've not seen that bash error before. I'm not sure exactly what it means. And I don't have the software you are using, or I would try it myself.

I have confidence in you. Most people cannot read a stack trace. But they can gather enough clues from strace output to isolate the problem. Don't be daunted.
