Re: Ink levels showing at 100%-Part 2

Hello and thank you for your well illustrated description! The levels "ink consumption" show the consumption of ink of the last print job and of all print jobs (the counters can be reset in PrintFab Toolbox). These values are only useful to compare the ink consumption of different documents or of di...

Re: turboprint-startmonitor doesn't run

The Applet is just a small add-on to TurboPrint and not supported on all Linux systems where TurboPrint works. A reason is the variety of different Desktop types and variations which would need adaptions or own versions of the applet.

Re: turboprint-startmonitor doesn't run

Hallo Jiffy111, can you start TurboPrint-Monitor by clicking on the "TurboPrint-Monitor" Desktop icon or from TurboPrint Control with the "Status Monitor" button? The "startmonitor" script that you called is not really suited for that purpose as it also tries to copy desktop applets into system fold...

You just need to install the software package again, then activate it with your license keyfile. In case of a new computer it might be necessary to contact us in case the keyf...

Re: No USB option for standard printer port

The "driverless" system is probably running on your Linux. This blocks the printer and should give (limited) access via a local IPP connection - the printer should be visible in TurboPrint Control -> "Add printer" dialog as "Epson SC-P600 series (driverless)". It usually helps to disable the "driver...

Re: No USB option for standard printer port

Hello, of course you should see the printer. Please execute lsusb in a terminal window to check if the printer is recognized by your computer. If that works, please execute sudo /usr/lib/cups/backend/usb sudo /usr/lib/cups/backend/tpu to check if the printer is also recognized by "usb", the standard...

Re: White order at bottom of 13x19 prints for Epson Xp-15000

Hello, which version of PrintFab do you use (PrintFab Toolbox -> pulldown menu "About PrintFab Toolbox")? There was actually a problem in PrintFab 2.94 with a white margin at the page end in borderless mode. I recommend to upgrade to PrintFab 2.95: https://www.zedonet.com/download/printfab/printfab-...
