pegg is a control program for the Casio KP-C10/50 or KLP1000 label printers. It allows you to print a raw imagefile with your printer. Furthermore it includes a small testing feature which can be used to check the communication with your printer.

pegg makes use of the /proc/bus/usb filesystem. If you want to make sure that everybody can use the printer, you should check the permission of the corresponding devicefile. For this have a look at syslog messages when you plugin your printer An example: /proc/bus/usb/001/003 (controler 001, device 003)  

OPTIONS

-t
Test the communication with the printer and gives information about the type
-d<dens>
Set the printing density 0=light...4=dark. Default density is 3 (-d3)
-w<width>
Set the maximum printing width to <width> (eg. -w384 = 384px width) Default is 512 This switch is only usable with a KL-P1000 printer. KP-C10/50 are restricted to the default setting. If the inputfile is smaller, the width will be adjusted.
-o<file>
Export to <file> file instead of printing
PEGG-FILE
