Overview
The SATO Driver for Linux system was developed to allow the users to print into the SATO
printer.
This driver is based on CUPS printing system for Linux. All the device communications are
handled by CUPS (backend). The raster filter converts the CUPS raster graphic into SBPL
which the printer can understand. For an instance, if the user prints a label, the raster filter
converts the graphic into SBPL command which will be send to the printer together with the
printer options.

4.5 Troubleshooting
The best way to troubleshoot the problem is to check the log file. The procedures are as follows:
1) Switch on the "debug" mode in the LogLevel directive for your CUPS daemon.
2) Edit /etc/cups/cupsd.conf to have the line "LogLevel debug".
3) After changing the setting, restart CUPS daemon by typing “ /etc/software/init.d/cups start” on
the command-line.
4) Once the “LogLevel” has been modified, print a document and locate the log file generated. It
can be found on /var/log/cups/error_log directory of your machine.
5) Open the logs generated. This will give you the idea what caused the problem.
Note: Alternatively, you can also do it using the CUPS web interface.
