[ILUG-BOM] epson 480 printer cartridge
Sat Feb 1 18:44:37 IST 2003
first of all i wud like 2 apologise 2 all of u for having my mail cause so
much of flames on the grp. it was only b'coz of incomplete info provided by
the other mistake that i realized i had made was 2 ask questions directly on
the list without trying 2 find the ans myself first. tried 2 take the easy
way out. but now that i've realized my mistake, i will try not to commit the
having apologised, i wud also like 2 make some clarifications:
actually the epson 480 color stylus printer comes with a MS windows based
utility 2 bring the cartridge holder in the open (from beneath the cover)
while changing the cartridge. also after changing the cartridge, the ink in
the new cartridge has 2 be charged b4 the printer can start printing.
also other utilities provided r nozzle cleaning, head positioning, etc.
it is **not** possible 2 open the printer & change the cartridge manually.
(so i can't do ne thing even if god has given me 2 hands & a brain)
also my printer IS connected to a linux machine (although i also have a
windows OS, which i never use (it is there for my brother who uses the comp
only 2 play games like NFS, cricket, etc which, unfortunately r not available
on the linux platform))
it doesn't make sense 2 switch 2 windows just 2 change the printer cartridge.
consider the case of a guy (probably hypothetical) who has the same printer
but has only linux on his machine
my question is definitely related to GNU/linux & i think that it was not at
all out of place when it occured on the mailing list.
P.S: although i took all the sarcasm in a very light & joking manner, i wud
sincerely REQUEST all of u to plz not use a rude language & flame each other,
which wud only result in migration of a linux newbie like me again 2 WINDOZE.
