when my laptop had xp on and my epson r265 was installed i had a status monitor which checked the levels on the ink and told me which ink was running low or totally out. how can i check the levels of ink on my printer in mint
any ideas welcome

You could try them, but be aware that many of these report low ink way before it actually happens. I usually wait for the obvious (my pages start to get lighter) and never use software ink level stuff as I find them unreliable.
# modprobe usblp
# escputil -i -r /dev/usb/lp0
