Thread: OpenSuSE 11.4 Star Micronics NX-2420 Rainbow NO DRIVERS

  1. #1

    Default OpenSuSE 11.4 Star Micronics NX-2420 Rainbow NO DRIVERS

    I was rather shocked to find no drivers for:

    Star Micronics NX-2420 Rainbow

    which can emulate

    IBM Proprinter 24 and EPSON LQ Neither of which have drivers either.

    It may shock you, but there are still legal reasons to use dot matrix impact printers. Given the NX-2420 rainbow emulated the two most popular dot matrix printers (with the possible exception of the Okidata Microline family of printers, I'm quite shocked to see not a single functioning driver.
