Finally finished the various additions to Inkblot, a GNOME printer ink level tool, based on libinklevel.

Inkblot lives in the notification area and gives a 'traffic-light' indication of overall ink level status. Clicking the icon gives more detail in the form of a dialog, and this can be expanded if your printer supports reporting on each colour reservoir. Inkblot should detect your printer automatically.

Right now, I only have a tarball of the release - attempts to make the necessary packages of libinklevel will follow. You can download Inkblot here:




I've had a home on the web for more years than I care to remember, and a few kind souls persuade me it's worth persisting with keeping it updated. This current incarnation of the site is centred around the blog posts which began back in 1999 as 'the daylog' and continued through my travels and tribulations during the following years.

I don't get out and about nearly as much these days, but I do try to record significant events and trips for posterity. You may also have arrived here by following the trail to my former music blog Songs Heard On Fast Trains. That content is preserved here too.
