Don't know about other printers but HP printers have an ink monitor for linux - It's the hplip-gui
package. Once installed run hp-toolbox
in terminal or HPLIP Toolbox
from the menu. Don't know about other printers.
As far as reliability or accuracy of the notification all I can say is that the toolbox in Linux or Windows will tell you you're out of ink weeks before you really are out of ink. I think the driver developers got input from HP Marketing on that
