Review of Linux Compatibility

The DYMO LabelManager PNP is a label printer, which is connected via USB and is compatible with Linux. The printer has two USB modes (similar to some USB surf sticks). Therefore, it can have the USB ID

DefaultVendor  = 0x0922
DefaultProduct = 0x1001

if it behaves as a memory stick, while it has a different USB ID if it is used as a label printer

TargetVendor  = 0x0922
TargetProduct = 0x1002

The switch between both modes is performed by the program usb_modeswitch. It might be necessary to add the following udev rule (e.g. in the file /etc/udev/rules.d/91-dymo-labelmanager-pnp.rules)

# DYMO LabelManager PNP
SUBSYSTEMS=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="0922", ATTRS{idProduct}=="1001", \
RUN+="/usr/sbin/usb_modeswitch -c /etc/usb_modeswitch.d/dymo-labelmanager-pnp.conf"
SUBSYSTEMS=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="0922", ATTRS{idProduct}=="1002", MODE="0660", GROUP="plugdev"

In some distributions it might be necessary to add such lines of code.

Accessing the LabelManager PNP is possible thanks to the Linux Software Development Kit (SDK), which is porivided by DYMO at–1#tab=Support. A file like “dymo-cups-drivers-1.4.0.tar.gz“ can be downloaded there.

To compile the driver one needs the libraries libcups2-dev and libcupsimage2-dev. These can be installed under Ubuntu by:

sudo apt-get install libcups2-dev libcupsimage2-dev gcc g++

Afterwards, the downloaded driver can be unpacked, compiled, and installed:

tar xzf dymo-cups-drivers-1.4.0.tar.gz
cd ./dymo-cups-drivers-
sudo make install

The Dymo LabelManager PNP has to be configured under CUPS as a printer (i.e. by the CUPS configuration web front-end at http://localhost:631/admin). A step-by-step instruction of such configurations with screen shots can be found at

As soon as the printer is configured under CUPS, one can print labels on the LabelManager PNP from all Linux applications, which have printer support. However, it is recommended to use specialized software like gLabels, which provides additional configuration for labels sizes and margins. The gLabels software can be installed by:

sudo apt-get install glabels
