How Setup LinkBox

Before connected LinkBox to Odoo you need to setup LinkBox based on OS distribution you used. Also, you need to understand that LinkBox is running under libusb. Here step-by-step that you can follow.

Ubuntu

    There is no libusb installation for Ubuntu because Ubuntu already comes with libusb, but you need to create an access right for the usb system. You can follow the following procedure:

  • Open Terminal and run command bellow:
  • sudo groupadd usbusers
    sudo usermod -a -G usbusers USERNAME
  • Then we need to create a udev rule that will automatically allow members of usbusers to access raw USB devices. To do so create a file called 99-usbusers.rules in the /etc/udev/rules.d/ directory with the following content:
    SUBSYSTEM=="usb", GROUP="usbusers", MODE="0660"
    SUBSYSTEMS=="usb", GROUP="usbusers", MODE="0660"
  • Then you need to reboot your machine.

Mac

    For the libusb installation on Mac OS, you can follow the following procedure:
  • Press Command+Space and type Terminal.app and press enter/return key.
  • Run in Terminal app:
    ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)" < /dev/null 2> /dev/null
    and press enter/return key.
    If the screen prompts you to enter a password, please enter your Mac's user password to continue. When you type the password, it won't be displayed on screen, but the system would accept it. So just type your password and press enter/return key. Then wait for the command to finish.
  • Once the process above complete run these command:
    brew install libusb
    and press enter/return key.
  • Then you need to reboot your machine.

Windows

    Before use LinkBox in Windows, you need to create libusb driver for your printer that you used. Open inf-wizard.exe that you can find in folder libusb-win32-bin-1.2.6.0\bin\. Then execute the binary with Administrator access. Follow this instruction:
  • Right-click inf-wizard.exe and Run As Administrator.
  • Click on Next to go to the next step.
  • Select your printer, then click on Next.
  • Click on Next to go to the next step.
  • Save your own libusb driver, then click on Save.
  • Click on Install Now.. to install the drivers.
  • Please wait until installation finished.
  • Installation successful!

Run LinkBox

Find the binary file under directory/folder bin and you can execute it with double click. Then after it running successfully, the LinkBox information will be printed.
