labeling for the EDC

Project description

pypi travis codecov downloads


Print labels from for clinic/edc projects

To add print servers update settings.CUPS_SERVERS:


CUPS_SERVERS = ["localhost", ""]


If not set, the default print server is “localhost”.

Note: it is fine to just configure the local CUPS server (localhost) with remote printers as per below.

CUPS and printer Installation

Install CUPS Print Server:

sudo apt-get install cups

sudo cp /etc/cups/cupsd.conf /etc/cups/cupsd.conf.original

sudo chmod a-w /etc/cups/cupsd.conf.original

Edit /etc/cups/cupsd.conf to listen on your public IP:

sudo  nano /etc/cups/cupsd.conf

Add the last line with your public IP:

    Listen           # existing loopback Listen
    Listen /var/run/cups/cups.sock # existing socket Listen
--> Listen PUBLIC_IP:631      # Listen on the LAN interface, Port 631 (IPP)

Restart CUPS:

sudo systemctl restart cups.service

Add a remote printer by name to your CUPS server

LOCAL_PRINTER_NAME: printer as named on the EDC, your server


REMOTE_PRINTER_NAME: printer name installed on remote CUPS server


For example:

lpadmin -p ambition_clinic_label_printer -E -v ipp://
lpadmin -p ambition_lab_label_printer -E -v ipp://
lpadmin -p specimen_reception_label_printer -E -v ipp://

Add an IP addressable remote printer

REMOTE_CUPS_IP_ADDRESS: printer IP installed on remote CUPS server

lpadmin -p LOCAL_PRINTER_NAME -E -v ipp://REMOTE_CUPS_IP_ADDRESS/ipp/print -m everywhere

For example:

lpadmin -p PRINTER_NAME -E -v ipp://REMOTE_IP_ADDRESS/ipp/print -m everywhere
