CUPS | SATO Printer Driver for Linux and Mac OS X

The SATO CUPS Driver was developed to allow users to print labels from either Linux or Mac OS X operating systems to the SATO printer model.

This driver is based on CUPS (Common UNIX Printing System) for Linux and Mac OS X platforms and the entire device communications are handled by CUPS filter system (backend). The raster filter converts the CUPS raster graphic into SBPL (SATO Barcode Programming Language) commands which is sent to the SATO printer to compile and print the label, along with any of the printer options/parameters specified.


Currently SATO CUPS Driver for Linux supports below models:
  • CG2 Series, CG4 Series, GZ4e Series, M84 Pro Series, CL6e Series, CL4e Series, M84xxSe, CT4i Series, LM4e Series, S84 Series, M10e Series, GL4e Series, MB2i Series, MB4i Series, TG3e Series, CL4NX, S84ex/S86ex
The SATO CUPS Driver will be undergoing continual refinement, and it is expected that other SATO printer models will be supported in future.

For Linux platform, SATO has provided 3 packages such as .rpm, .deb and .tar.gz. The .rpm file is the installer for Red Hat like system (ex. Fedora). The .deb is for Debian system (ex. Ubuntu) and you can use the tar.gz for generic distribution installation. Please find the download links below:
