I have Odoo 8 running on a Windows server and two POS client machines running Ubuntu.

I have the following modules installed:





I would like to have certain items get sent to the kitchen printer.

In the kitchen I have an Epson TM-T88IV on the network at and it is installed on the Windows server.

I have added a printer under "Order Printers" pointed at the IP address of the server, and configured the POS categories that I want sent to that printer. However, when I create an order for the products in those categories, nothing gets sent to the printer. I have also tried pointing the Order printer setting to the IP address of the printer itself but also got nothing.

I have searched for clear instructions on setting up order printers but found nothing.

You could try this modules:



The first is an app for Google Chrome/Chromium that comunicate wih the module on the second link to fetch print data and handle the printer locally

Hello Axel, my installation is all local. Our Internet here in Angola is not good enough to host Odoo in the cloud.

The modules says for the cloud but it will work wherever you have your odoo server installed
