;) Could any of you kind people please suggest a program for monitoring
the ink levels in an Epson Stylus TX 110 all in one or something that covers this range of
printers.

Any help would be appreciated . :D

Hello fellow,

You have to look for the driver on this site:

http://www.avasys.jp/lx-bin2/linux_e/spc/DL1.do

Choose the printer model, your distribution version, etc.

You'll have to install a package as root.

I use it and works pretty well on my TX110 on Ubuntu.

Best regards,

If your printer is installed and working in Fedora run ' escputil ' as root in a console. the command ' escputil --ink-level --raw-device /dev/usb/lp0 'should return your ink levels, if not escputil --help will show other options. If all else fails, enter ' escputil ' in the forum search facility, there's been quite a lot posted on using this command.

By the way, I forgot to mention that with the avasys driver the command to see the ink levels is ekpstm.
