Lavu Kiosk Printer Settings - Control Panel

Lavu Kiosk Receipt Printers

The Kiosk Settings contains a special section to allow you to quickly add a receipt printer for your kiosk. The Kiosk only supports Epson Printers at this time. The Kiosk can 'print' to the Epson KDS, but not to the Lavu KDS.

Configure the Receipt Printer

Set up for your receipt printer is fairly simple. Choose the scenario below that most closely matches your situation and follow the instructions.

  • I purchased pre-configured hardware from Lavu.
    • Awesome! Plug your printer in and load the receipt paper. The printer has already been set to a static IP address and is labeled with that address.
  • My printer is not configured.
    • That is not a problem. Open this Lavu Support article and complete all of the steps in The Printer and Steps 1-7 in Network and Control Panel Settings. (Stop when you get to the control panel settings because this setup is slightly different.)

Adjust the Kiosk Receipt Printer Settings


  1. Login to your Lavu Control Panel
  2. Navigate to Settings > Location Settings > Kiosk Settings > Kiosk Receipt Printers
  3. Click + ADD NEW
  4. Select the appropriate unassigned Setting
    1. Check your regular printer assignments by navigating to Settings > Printers / KDS > Printers / KDS
    2. Find the first receipt printer assignment that is not already assigned.
    3. Using the image below, I would select receipt2 as my first kiosk printer assignment
  5. Enter a Name for the printer. It is a good idea to name the printer so that it describes what you use the printer for (e.g. Bar Printer, Grill Printer, etc.)
  6. Enter the printer’s static IP Address
  7. Enter the Port (The default entry is ‘9100’ as this is the most common assignment.)
  8. Select Epson from the Printer Type drop-down menu
  9. Select the appropriate Command Set from the drop-down menu (Don’t worry if you do not see this drop-down at first. It becomes available after you select the Printer Type in step 8.)
  10. Select the appropriate Model from the drop-down menu
  11. Leave the following fields blank: Characters Per Line, Characters Per Line (large font), and Line Spacing
  12. Select Epson Graphics from the Image Capability drop-down menu
  13. Click SAVE at the bottom of the page

There is one more step to complete this process: assign the printer to the kiosk. This takes place in the Lavu Kiosk app. We will address that in Assigning the Lavu Kiosk Receipt Printer article. First, let’s complete our control panel settings.
