Linux app printing question
So I have been developing an application on Ubuntu. 100% Python code, works just fine.
However I need to print out data at the users request and have no idea what the heck I am doing. For this reason I have yet to select a printer I will be using for this purpose.
So my question is two fold:
1) I'd like some suggestions on a typical thermal receipt printer that would be compatabile with the most recent version of Ubuntu. Ideally multiple printers are capable of being attached and receiving the information.
2) What modules/packages etc should I use in my python scripts to get print out some arbitrary amount of data in a specific format.
Thanks for any insight.

- I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
Go to the printer manufacturer or vendor web sites and see if they support Linux - many do. If they do, then they should provide a CUPS driver and configuration files for you to install and use. Also, Google is your friend!Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
