  • 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.
  • Dymo Labelwriter 450 is NOT compatible with Evergreen, Mozilla Bug 456846.
    • dbs - Strange: Laurentian University has been using the Dymo LabelWriter 450 with Evergreen 1.6 (now on 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.
  • 3M Stats and Status counts package is currently NOT working with Evergreen, but we are not sure if it is hardware or software issue.
  • Unique Management Services Material Recovery Service and Notice Printing service and telephone messaging service works with all versions of Evergreen
  • products work well with Evergreen.
  • Okidata Microline 320 Turbo
    • No longer appears to be compatible with Evergreen starting with EG 2.4 (jihpringle)
