Whether you are using Epson printer ink cartridges, toner cartridges from HP or for that matter, even compatible ink cartridges, you dream about making them last longer so that you can get something more out of your investment. You make use of different tricks to ensure the last drop of ink delivers a few more prints.
Brand new ink cartridges--$64. worth! Both Epson 273--One box with all the colors plus black, and one with the fatter black cartridge. I am not getting ANY black print on paper, altho when I lift the cartridges out, they show ink inside. Now the yellow is saying "LOW" altho all cartridges are less than 2 weeks old. Only use sparingly-not for business or work reasons.
I currently have a Brother MFC 240c printer. Best I ever had. But it finally died. Could only use it on my Windows pc though. Now I want a new multifunction printer that will work with Ubuntu 9.04 without having to mess with all that cups and library crap. I have never gotten a printer to work that didn't work out of the box and I am now to old to try again.
I am using Ubuntu 9.10 on an IBM Thinkpad with an Epson Stylus Photo R800 printer. I am trying to print some color photos with the latest Gimp. The problem is that the Gimps driver is grossly deficient for this printer. It cant reliably control the choice between portrait and landscape mode. Even worse, it cant tell me which of the printers eight ink cartridges is out of ink.
Normally, I buy $20 printers and toss them when the ink runs out, but this time I bought ink for my roommates printer only to discover what I should have remembered--replacing the black doesn't help. All ink cartridges must have ink... This is a matter of principle at this point.
Hello everyone, I am back again with more troubles I can't seem to solve. This time it is involving my HP D1600 printer, which is connected to a Windows machine at some other location in the house. I'd like to connect this Crunchbang machine to it so I can print things, but I have been having some troubles..
