Bug Description

Binary package hint: hplip


I have a hp psc 1510. It runs well with hplip but no ink level is available in the printer properties.
The HP driver can show ink level for my printer, why not the hlip version of ubuntu?

Thanks for your help.

Looks like a problem of the upstream HPLIP code for me. Added upstream task so that the HPLIP developers at HP get aware of this.

HPLIP Auto installation support for Ubuntu 11.04 is not available. Support for Ubuntu 11.04 will be available in coming release of HPLIP.
