there is an example in the readme file. You just have to have a ~/.aslpmon
file with lines :
lpq=my_printer_queue

one line for one queue.
In the next version, it will be a little more complicated but with more
explanations.

Yes, you are right. I have forgotten to update this. Lot of code come from
wmmount and aspbm because I don't know X11 programming. It's written in the
readme file and in the source files. Thanks to open source and GPL.

Thank you for your report.
Etienne.
