  1. Hi Sasa,
    Just wanted to add this. You can actually use ink -d [path] (/dev/usb/your_printer), use sudo for access rights to the device and that is it. No need to change the permissions.

  2. There's no need to change permissions when checking the ink levels in Lubuntu 16.04. This app works well with my HP Photosmart 7900 unlike the Ink/Toner Levels feature in CUPS which does not support my printer.

  3. Awesome! The protocol in this video worked for my HP Officejet 6500 printer. I really can't stand doing things via terminal command, and prefer a gui, but I had no choice in this instance (from what I can tell). I am extremely glad that this video was here. Many thanks for uploading!
