Help with POS thermal printers needed

I have checked e.g. this thread:


But I think it needs something more. I've been testing Star TSP100 thermal printer and yes, I can print to it straight from Odoo, but as it is using windows driver, it dithers the text to almost unreadable. I assume you would need to control the printer in RAW mode or something like that (more or less like old line printers, where you output text, no graphics, and let the printer do the rendering). 

Any advice on this?

The idea of having a driver, AFAIK, is to avoid exactly that.  Having said that, if there is really no other way to print it legibly using the available drivers, you need to first find out whether Star Mitronics (producer of Star TSP100) provides SDK to access the printer raw and in what language the SDK is provided (and what platform).  You then need to find a bridge between Python and that language and build the "driver" that is accessible from Python.  Then integrate it with OpenERP.

Any of have made a development using Bluetooth connection?
