All works very well but I have e problem with hp 82162A configuration.
I created the HP82162A tab with Files --> Virtual HP-IL device configuration
and I restarted pyILPER.
The tab HP82162A is present and I clicked over Device enabled and my
hp 41CX (I am waiting for a new Sy 41CL) prints very well.
The problem is that I not obtain the device control radio buttons for the
print mode (MAN - NORM - TRACE) and all others buttons!
The Drive1 tab offers all buttons to select various units.
Only the HP82162A loss the buttons.
I installed the pyILPER via ANACONDA3 on Linux Xubuntu 18.04.
Someone can help me?
Thank you so much for all your help!!!
I am sorry, I not seed a line in the menu
All problems resolved!
A thank you at all that viewed this post.

The HP-41 HP-IL module lets you control print modes (MAN-NORM-TRACE) using flags 15 and 16. From the QRG:

Flags 15 and 16: Print Mode (not used for HP 82162A Thermal Printer)
Flag 15 Flag 16 Print Mode
clear    clear  MAN [manual)
clear    set    NORM [normal)
set      clear  TRACE
set      set    TRACE with stack option
I believe the note saying 'not used for HP 82162A Thermal Printer' is because that real printer has the physical controls you mention, but on pyILPER obviously not.

See the HP-82160A HP-IL Module manual for more details.
