Raw data driver

    I am trying to get a Mac to work with a thermal ticket printer. It simply needs a driver that will send the data to the printer as raw text. Everything the printer needs is in the text file.

    Is there a  gimp-print driver available that does nothing more than feeds the text from a file to the printer port?

      I am also looking for a way to feed raw text. Did you find an answer?

      Probably the answer depends on how you are originating your print jobs. If you are printing from some standard application (like TextEdit) then your task may be harder than if you are writing a custom app to "print" these text files.  Are you a developer looking for advice or an end user looking for a solution?
