Connect a “dump” USB-printer on macOS (High Sierra)

  • by

The printer is a ticket printer (Epson TM-u220) and I have a Java App talking directly to the printer device at /dev/tty(xxx) on Linux and Unix without any special installed drivers.

On macOS, I can see the printer device with the ioreg -p IOUSB command, but there is no /dev/tty(x) associated with this device.
I can’t find a driver on Epson’s website for the TM-U220 for macOS (only Windows and Linux are supported). Also, I don’t want one; a simple USB serial driver with a corresponding /dev/ttyUSBxx is all I need.

How do I associate a character device under /dev/ for this printer?
