Hello I installed the module base report to printer in ODOO v8 and I set my Zebra Printer GC420t as default. 

In Settings -> Printing -> Update Printer from CUPS, It shows my Zebra Printer. In Settings -> Reports -> Product Label, I change in print from Send TO Client to Send to Printer and Chose my printer below.


Now When I try to print the Product Labels It still downloads a pdf file instead of sending the image to the printer?


Can anybody Tell me a Solution?

Hi Manish, did you go into your user preferences through 'Settings->Users' and update the printer preferences against your user profile too?  In the user profile there is a preferences tab and at the bottom you can set 'Send to Print' in there as well as selecting the correct printer. Also ensure user that is attempting to print has authority to do so in their user profile.

By the way I did this today and Odoo attempted to send to printer however I had a software issue stating that print_options() expected 3 arguments but got 4, so now I'm wondering why no-one has posted this issue.
