Thanks a lot Markjw,
Regarding the resolution issue, the LS6100 simply refused to send signal to both of my Dell 27" and 28" monitors and also to my LG 32" monitor. I then brought a 24" Samsung from home and then, bang… the guy came up, working. Bematech support said it won’t work on anything greater than a 24" and I don’t know exactly why - it just refused to.
You just said something I was thinking about raising up as issue that might need to worked on by the SambaPOS community of developers.
My point is this:
Most KDS somewhat have a sort of mini PC that makes their operations possible - at least from the Micros and Bematech ones that we own - they do. You use a mouse and keyboard to generally set them up and they can also open browsers. Essentially I think they run deprecated versions of windows.
Given this scenario and the fact that the major player in the POS software business have stuffs like these that make their customers lives easier, would it be too much stress if the developers in the community look at how to effectively create workarounds that can allow users communicate with these devices. This is important so that we don’t just go throwing away expensive hardware all because we are changing our POS software to SambaPOS. If this can be achieved, I think it would be the decision to switch to SambaPOS a lot easier to make for a lot of people. I think this makes good business sense.
I believe that if slight modifications can be done to the existing SambaPOS that works on normal mini PCs, and it can be adapted to work on these branded KDS machines to be able to communicate effectively with SambaPOS, then we would have achieved a lot in the development of this opensource POS software.
Just thinking out loud while trying to solve this teething problem I am in. The QMX route may be the most likeable one to take at the moment.
