I'm looking for an ink monitoring program for an HP printer that works in Linux, I've tried Inkblot, but it does not work in Linus Mint 17.3. Are there any others?

The standard Linux HP utility, HPLIP, works very well. As to how accurate it is, I dont' know. I've always thought it reports you are out of ink long, long before the supply is actually depleted.

HPLIP was installed with the software for the HP Printer and has a ultility (HPLJS)which allows you to run a command in a terminal to check ink levels(but I don't know the command). If you know the command, please post it back to me and thanks for your effort.

The fluidity in FL Studio's step-sequencers and piano roll especially, aren't in any of the DAWs I've seen; I've tried Ardour but it wouldn't work then, something about the "JACK" not being connected; but I'll try again on a different machine. Thanks

I've always used the gui, but here are a list of commands. Took all of 10 seconds to find it using a search engine:

It is probably a fair comment that "if someone needs a program ported to Penguin", that they had better stay with Windoze, but surely this thread is more about want than need. In many cases, it's also about not needing anymore, as people on this forum often come up with excellent Linux alternatives, making the 'need' irrelevant.

There are lots of alternatives but unless they save in the same format as the originals they're kind useless if you collectively work on, or share projects.

Oh absolutely. Luckily for Linux, many of these proprietary software designers for Windoze mess up the format every time a new version comes out (see Micro$oft Office etc.).

Yep. I'm enough of a cynic to think they do it on purpose in an effort to force people to buy the newest version. "Follow the money."

Sometimes I think this plays into the hands of the FOSS community. Many Government agencies around the world have chosen FOSS products to reduce the amount of times they have to retrain their staff.

Indeed, and even those who have not yet chosen free software have left themselves the option of doing so in future by using ODF and similar strategies.
