mos, we discussed many times this arguments but I admit the search is not exactly helpful when you need to locate a specific argument. 

Yes, theoretically you can, but not without working a bit on it. 

First you need to install the hw_escpos module, expect some missing python libs that you may need to install.

Then you need to cross your finger and see if your printer is fully compatible with Odoo.

For now there are just a bunch of printers tested (Epson TM-T20 series) and if your printer is not one of those you need to add it to the configuration file


picking the printer's vendor e product code using lsusb (if you are using linux) and put them as new line in the printers list with the following format:

device_list = [
 { 'vendor' : VENDORCODE, 'product' : PRODUCTCODE, 'name' : 'PRINTERNAME' },

Hope it helps.

Thank you FEDERICO LEONI for you help, is that all what I should do ? Do I need some specific development?

Nope. Theoretically you are good to go if your printer is fully compatible. If not have a look to your Odoo log and see if there are messages about hw_escpos module. Please remember you need to configure the printers on pos_restaurant too to make them works. How depends by the connection you're using (USB, serial or LAN). If I helped you could you lease give +1 to my answer? Thanks.
