We have a Sharp XE-A203 cash register in the shop and haven’t really ever spent the time to configure it all the way. We were pretty amazed when we downloaded the XE-A203 manual and skimmed over it to see what the capabilities of the XE-A203 device were. You can program the XE-A203 cash register to do all sorts of stuff including employee data, department data, etc. There is even a power save mode on this cash register. We rarely deal in cash so we are always clicking a single button to open the register and put receipts or checks underneath the inside cash drawer. The problem with that though is every single time the drawer was opened a receipt was printed thus wasting paper. Below is information about how to configure the XE-A203 cash register to not print a receipt every time the CA/AT/NS button is pressed.
I have just spent about 2 days trying to get my printer at the shop working and I finally did so i figured I would share the results of two days of head bashing on the keyboard. It seems the MFC-5890cn is not a very popular printer so there are no drivers included with CUPS for it. Normally you can go to Linux Printing and get a PPD file but in this situation the printer was not listed in Linux printing. Below I will outline the steps I used to get this printer going in Linux.
There are numerous applications that allow you to print pretty much anything directly from your iPhone. Some applications require third party software running on a computer to fully function though. Below I describe three different applications that I use to print items directly from my iPhone or from my iPhone through a computer because each of these applications serve a different purpose. When possibly it is always easiest to print directly from the iPhone but I have yet to find a solid application that will print any type of document directly from the iPhone. Hopefully the below explanations will explain help you decide which application or applications are best for you based on price and functionality.
