Question about Epson Stylus Photo 1290 InkJet Printer
Without knowing where your "compatible " cartridges came from, it's difficult to say. The correct cartridge types for a 1290 are T007 and T009. Do your cartridges with lugs show these numbers? In general, compatible cartridges will fit into the cartridge carrier without problem. Yes, Epson did fit plastic key lugs to their cartridges to artificially make cartridge A different to cartridge B, when in reality they were identical e.g. C46 and C48. Now, compatible cartridges for your printer are incredibly cheap on E-Bay. My advice is just to throw away the troublesome luggy ones you have and buy some more on E-Bay - they will fit without trouble.
