B.1.1. In the Print Driver

For these instructions, we are using version 5,0,3,0 of the Epson TM-T88III print driver; the EPSON TM-T88IV version is ReceiptE4. Register at the EpsonExpert Technical Resource Center website to gain access to the drivers; go to Technical Resources, then choose the printer model from the Printers drop-down list.

Click Start > Printers and Faxes > Right click the receipt printer > Properties:

  • Advanced Tab, click Printing Defaults button

  • Layout Tab: Paper size: Roll Paper 80 x 297mm

  • TM-T88III: Layout Tab: Check Reduce Printing and Fit to Printable Width

  • TM-T88IV: Check Reduced Size Print; Click OK on the popup window that appears. Fit to Printable Width should be automatically selected.

  • OK your way out of there.

B.1.2. In Firefox

Under File > Page Setup:

  • Shrink to fit page on Format & Options tab

  • 0,0,0,0 for Margins on Margins & Header/Footer Tab. This makes the receipts use all available space on the paper roll.

  • Set all Headers/Footers to -blank-. This removes all of the gunk you might normally find on a print from Firefox, such as the URL, number of pages, etc.

  • Click OK

Set the default printer settings in Firefox so you don't see a "Print" dialog:

  • Go to File > Print

  • Set the Printer to the receipt printer.

  • Click the Advanced (or Properties) button

  • Layout Tab: Paper size: Roll Paper 80 x 297mm

  • TM-T88III: Layout Tab: Check Reduce Printing and Fit to Printable Width

  • TM-T88IV: Check Reduced Size Print; click OK on the popup window that appears. Fit to Printable Width should be automatically selected.

  • OK your way out, go ahead and print whatever page you are on.

  • Type about:config, in the address bar. Click "I'll be careful, I promise!" on the warning message.

  • Type, print.always in Filter.

  • Look for print.always_print_silent.

    • If the preference is there then set the value to true.

  • If the preference is not there (and it shouldn't be in most browsers) you have to add the preference.

    • Right click the preference area and select New > Boolean

    • Type print.always_print_silent in the dialog box and set the value to True. This sets the print settings in Firefox to always use the same settings and print without showing a dialog box.

Varování

Setting the print.always_print_silent setting in about:config DISABLES the ability to choose a printer in Firefox.
