Yeah, it's been far too long since the last bit of news so here's a entry just to announce that MonAMI now has a new plugin: inklevel.
This plugin is a simple wrapper around Markus Heinz's libinklevel library. This is a nice library that allows easy discovery of how much ink is left in those expensive ink cartridges.
The library allows one to check the ink levels of Canon, Epson and HP printers. It can check printers directly attached (via the parallel port or USB port) or, for Canon printers, over the network via BJNP (a proprietary protocol that has been reverse engineered).
libinklevel supports many different printers, but not all of them. There's a small collection of printers that the library doesn't work with. There are some printers that are neither listed as working or not working. If your printer isn't listed, please let Markus know whether libinklevel works or not.
