Just use the raw model.

lpadmin -p mydatamax -m raw -E

Also make sure you uncomment application/octet-stream filter line in the
mime.types and mime.convs of /etc/cups.

Additionally, there doesn't seem to be an entry for serial port printers.  The panasonic line printer which are our main printers configure to the parallel port without a problem.  However I'm having an issue getting this blank-blank-blank Datamax barcode printer working.  Is there a way to do this and is there a clear and concise guide to making your own print driver given that CUPS doesn't seem to have barcode printers on their list of printers.
