i can't find how to install and use the labelwriter 450 and it's urgent. i print for my job 50 to 100 labels per week.

i don't know what to do, i just went to ubuntu from windows 8.1.1.

I tried with wine but still doesn't work.

You need to get the correct drivers for CUPS, the Linux printing system. As far as I can tell, you can download them here:

To install Dymo 450 LabelWriter on Debian Systems - Ubuntu, Raspibian, you might need first: (helped me to compile drivers, advice from : http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1502581 )

sudo apt-get install libcups2-dev libcupsimage2-dev gcc g++

Then you want to do install dymo linux sdk (both links work at 2016-05-14):

Then you unpack it, compile and install driver:

sudo make install

Later I've added driver via cups web interface like any other driver, choosing right ppd file. (example project : https://www.hmazter.com/2013/05/raspberry-pi-printer-server-for-labelwriter and another: https://gist.github.com/gwpl/6d6c1457b4d1f6b778917a2f7c3c57fd ).

Finally, I share via network Dymo 450 LabelWriter(s) attached to Ubuntu and Raspibian with other Linuxes (including Archlinux) and I've found that to make printing via network (e.g. ipp:// and ipps:// ) to work, I need to schedule printing (of pdf, png, whatever) add -o raw to lpr command. You will see example of -o raw in https://gist.github.com/gwpl/6d6c1457b4d1f6b778917a2f7c3c57fd and https://askubuntu.com/a/748035/31300 .

Finally references for installing and using Dymo 450 under Linux:
