Review of Linux Compatibility
The Brother P-touch QL-570 is a label printer, which is also supported under Linux. Brother provides Linux drivers for the device on its homepage. Drivers can be downloaded as DEB- and as RPM files.
After installing the downloaded drivers with the package management system of the used distribution, the QL-570 has to be added to the CUPS printer driver. This can be performed via the CUPS front-end in a web browser at the URL http://localhost:631/printers/. The QL-570 can be selected under “Administration > modify printer” (select usb://Brother/QL-570).
Afterwards, it is possible to print on the label printer from each application. For example, under Libre-Office it is necessary to select in the printer properties of the QL-570 the option “PostScript (Level of driver)”.
Of course, it is necessary to scale the text of the labels according the their size.
