hello everybody,
I had an issue with my printer (epson stylus D78) yesterday. One of the ink cartridges was empty,although not serious, i had problems identifying which cartridge it was.
I couldn't find any program in f9 which could display the ink levels.
The printer was detected automatically during f9 installation.
'Epson Stylus D68 Foomatic/gutenprint-ijs-simplified.5.0 (recommended)'

I had to install 'pips-sc79-FedoraCore2-3.0-CLGE.tgz' and run 'ekpstm' to examine the ink levels.
Then return to 'foomatic' as i had issues with printing from gimp.

Anyway this is the background to my question

What program can be used to display my ink levels?, when running 'foomatic/gutenprint'

On terminal, type escputils --help. A list of utility should be displayed.
