View Full Version : [lubuntu] HP deskjet printer - does not give a low ink warning

September 23rd, 2011, 07:08 PM
I an new to Ubuntu - so please avoid technical terms. I am using
a HP Deskjet D1660 printer with Ubuntu 11.04. It works fine -
excepting that it does not give any warning when I'm low on ink.

It always gave me a low ink warning when it was hooked up to Vista.

I installed from the Software Center the HP toolkit - thinking that it
would do the trick - but - I was totally out of black ink and only
realized it when the printing got very light.

Is there something else I should install or a command to enter so
that I would be alerted when I was low on printer ink?

Thank you for your help.
