pegg_el is a control program for the Casio EL-700/EL-5000W label printers. You can print any binary imagefile with pegg and change a lot of output- & format options of your printer when using command line switches. The imageheight is restricted to 64,128,256 and 384px whereas the width can be choosen freely between 1 and 2560px.

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)
