My windows XP computer has no problem printing to an HP printer that thinks it has no black ink. However the XUBUNTU driver does not want to go any further. How can you tell it to go ahead anyway cause there is ink in this refilled cartridge.

  1. delete printer from computer via settings menu
  2. re-add printer by opening terminal and typing hp-setup

Apparently, this forces the computer to ignore the low-ink message.
