I'm looking to make a printer of ours (a card printer with magnetic stripe module) wireless using a Raspbery Pi and CUPS.
I'm thinking the printer isn't supported (it's a DataCard CP40 Plus printer, and we're looking to buy a new DataCard printer at the start of next year), so I'm wondering if CUPS is able to handle unsupported printers by passing a "printed from Windows" job straight through to the printer?
We're using the Pi because we'd rather not dedicate two machines to the sharing of the two printers, and the Pi seems ideal.
EDIT: There's a driver, but 1) it's from 2007, 2) it's not on DataCard's website, so I'm guessing not supported anymore 3) it's x86 only and 4) may not be compatible with the new printer we're after.
For now, it's about the best we can do. Worst case scenario, I buy an Intel Galileo (which is x86) and do it that way. We're already forking out a few grand for a card printer, so what's an extra $100?
