I'm using TurboPrint 2.13-2 as the driver for a Canon i350 printer on my Debian box. Along with a "low ink" warning it is also giving an "unknown- 1542" warning. Anyone know what this code is about? The printer works great with this driver and is fully functional but this 1542 flag keeps showing up.
Thanks in advance,

Some of these printers have a microchip in the cartridge and you're screwed if you don't get the cartridge from the manufacturer. The only defense is to be sure not to buy a printer like that next time. I think their strategy of selling the printer at a loss and forcing you to buy their expensive cartridges to make up the difference is unethical.

I think I found the answer in a manual for another model of printer......code 1542 apparently means that the ink levels in the color cartridge cannot be determined. I can live with that since it doesn't affect the performance, it's nice to have this old printer back on line. Good little printer for what it is.
