1. Overview
1.1.
Introduction
This manual provides information on the Linux driver for the QL-1050 label printers.
The Linux driver for the QL-1050 label printers consists of two types of drivers.
[1] LPR driver
The print features can be used with a Linux system that uses the LPD print service.
[2] CUPS wrapper driver
The CUPS wrapper driver operates the LPR driver as a CUPS driver.
The LPR driver must be installed before the CUPS wrapper driver is installed.
For compatibility with the different measurement units, a CUPS wrapper driver that displays values in
millimeters and a CUPS wrapper driver that displays values in inches are available.
This software provides the installer package that automatically copies the appropriate driver file (from those
mentioned above) to your Linux distribution.
Notes
-
Only the English versions of the drivers are currently available.

2. Installation (RPM and Debian)
2.1.
Installation procedure
As an example, the installation procedure for the QL-1050 driver is described below.
[1] Prepare the LPR driver or CUPS wrapper driver in the appropriate directory.
[2] Log on as the root user. Otherwise, use the “su” command to obtain Root permissions.
[3] Install the LPR driver.
For Debian users:
・
dpkg -i --force-all ql1050lpr-1.0.0-1.i386.deb
For Fedora Core (RPM) users:
・
rpm -ihv --nodeps ql1050lpr-1.0.0-1.i386.rpm
(If a Brother LPR driver is already installed, an error will occur. To overwrite it, specify the “--force" option.)
[4] Install the CUPS wrapper driver.
For Debian users:
・
When values are displayed in millimeters
dpkg -i --force-all ql1050cupswrapper-1.0.0-1.debian.i386.deb
When values are displayed in inches
dpkg -i --force-all ql1050cupswrapperinch-1.0.0-1.debian.i386.deb
For Fedora Core (RPM) users:
・
When values are displayed in millimeters
rpm -ihv --nodeps ql1050cupswrapper-1.0.0-1.redhat.i386.rpm
When values are displayed in inches
rpm -ihv --nodeps ql1050cupswrapperinch-1.0.0-1.redhat.i386.rpm

3. Creating labels using an application
3.1.
Using an application (OpenOffice.org)
This manual provides a description of the procedure for printing to the QL-1050 printer from OpenOffice.org, an
application that is widely used in Linux distributions.
When printing to the QL-1050 printer from OpenOffice.org, settings must be specified for the paper size and
margins of the layout. Templates with paper size and margin settings specified for Writer and Calc have been
provided with this software.
3.2.
Printing from an application (OpenOffice.org Writer and Calc)
As an example, the procedure for using a 62 mm × 100 mm landscape template for Writer is described below.
[1]
Copy the file “62mm×100mm.doc”, and then open it from OpenOffice.org Writer.
[2]
Change the data in the file as necessary.
[3]
Open the Print dialog box. For this example, select the printer name (QL-1050).
Click the [Properties] button, and then select “62mm×100mm” as the paper size in the Properties dialog box for
the printer. Start printing to confirm the successful operation if the data is printed with the specified layout.

Adding media (label formats)
To specify a length before printing on continuous length (12 mm, 29 mm, 62 mm, 102mm) labels, use added
media (label format).
Media (label formats) are added from the command line.
Use the tool “brpapertoollpr_ql1050” to add media (label formats). This tool is installed in the following folder
with the driver.
Folder: [usr]-[bin]
To add:
brpapertoollpr_ql1050 [-P <printer_name>] [-n <label_format_name>] [-w <media_width_(mm)>] [-h <media_height_(mm)>]
To delete:
brpapertoollpr_ql1050 [-P <printer_name>] [-d <label_format_name>]
[-P <printer_name>]:
Printer name defined by the user
[-n <label_format_name>]:
The width and height for the added label format name is added to the PPD file.
(If the label format name already exists, the old parameters will be updated
with the new parameters.)
[-w <paper_width_(mm)>]:
Specify the media width of the label format. (units: mm)
[-h <paper_height_(mm)>]:
Specify the media height of the label format. (units: mm)
[-d <label_format_name>]:
The label format is deleted from the PPD file.
Example:
[1]
A new label format for 62-mm continuous length tape for the QL-1050 printer will be added.
The operation must be performed by using Root permissions.
[2]
To add a label format:
Specify the label format name as “format6262”, the media width as “62 (mm)”, and the media length as “62
(mm)”.
[2]
To delete a label format:
Specify the label format name as “format6262”.

MFC-compatible Linux drivers
We provide MFC-compatible Linux drivers. The Ql-1050 driver described in this manual uses the same
