Deep Freeze is NOT compatible with Evergreen dbs
- A number of us on IRC
believe Deep Freeze is compatible, but requires some care in configuration. We suspect that the issue is that if you don't register your staff client with Evergreen before preventing changes with Deep Freeze, then the staff client will prompt you to reregister the staff client every time that you reboot.
dbs - Strange: Laurentian University has been using the Dymo LabelWriter 450 with Evergreen 1.6 (now on 188.8.131.52) since we launched in May 2009.
bshum - Dymo 450 worked fine with 1.6.1 for us. After upgrading to 2.0, we were unable to print labels for a time. The Dymo would just spool blank labels on test prints and other attempts to print using Evergreen; using Word or the Dymo software worked fine. We found that the margins needed to be checked and adjusted back to 0.0 (or at least much less than 0.5) on all sides and with "blank" as the other fields for the Page Settings associated with the Label printer options.
PALS is successfully using Dymo 450 with 2.2.0 with the margin changes suggested by bshum.
