How to check its printing barcodes
LPR -S -P Raw -o l
Use test file bsgroup1. pcl
Check the BarDIMM by reading it on a Windows PC
The File Structure will contain:
.manifest in the root
Jetmobile folder containing BarDIMM-Pro Folder
The Licence is embedded in the special Stick itself!
When the BarDIMM is inserted, the Software is loaded as a solution into the printer
(But needs the stick as it has the Licence to remove “Demo” Mode from the barcodes)
Check for Boot*.* files in the root
If these exist, they can safely be deleted
