Thank you for all of the info. escputil is installed on my system. It wasn't after I installed the first driver, but it must have installed with some of the later ones. I was suprised to find it there. Anyway, it won't display the ink levels. Can anyone tell me what to do?
It hangs, and I have to press ctrl-C to get it to quit.
