I bought an Epson TM-T88V to print out receipts from my web app. Our app displays the receipts in a PDF file 2 inches wide and 6 inches tall. However it looks like receipt printers like the Epson's TM-T88V are not designed to be used like regular printers.

Any tips here? We have to print from PDF.

Did you try "Fit to Page"? – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Oct 31 '11 at 3:00
the printer is not even listed – user25785 Oct 31 '11 at 3:05
So then install the driver. – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Oct 31 '11 at 3:09
Ignacio - I think u don't understand that this is not a normal type of printer. It's designed for specific POS Programs to use via api – user25785 Oct 31 '11 at 4:01
So then what the heck is "Advanced Printer Driver" supposed to be? – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Oct 31 '11 at 4:37

You will need to install one of the printer drivers from Epson's Tech Resources site in order for it to be seen as a normal printer.
