I tried installing libinklevel 0.6.6rc5 and the console app "ink" 0.3.2rc3.
I did this on Slackware. Both were tgz packages, and installed with no errors.
I have a HP deskjet 3650 and it is listed as working.
Now, I know the printer does have some ink, because I just refilled the cartridges. But, it displays that it has 0% left, and it's detected as 3600, but they have similar specs, from what I know:
# ink -p "usb"
ink v0.3.2 (c) 2006 Markus Heinz
hp deskjet 3600
The thing is, in windoze, with the official driver, it is also displayed as very low, and I frequently get the "empty color cartridge, please replace and click ok" error, and I click ok and it works perfectly. It used to work fine before refilling my cartidges. I never tried it on Linux until now.
Is it possible that this program works only with new cartridges? Or is it something I'm doing wrong?
Thanks for reading, any info is welcomed.
P.S. here's what lsusb says regarding my printer, in case it is needed:
