I've set-up my Epson C86 printer before, but, I've lost the link to how to set-up cups, and the software for my Epson C86 printer.
Any links to relevant threads would be greatly appareciated. I promise I'll archive the information better this time:-) I did this before with apt-get.
Make sure you've got cupsys-driver-gimpprint installed (dpkg -s cupsys-driver-gimpprint | grep Status). cupsys-driver-gimpprint has been replaced by cupsys-driver-gutenprint in Debian testing & unstable. You'll also need gs-esp but I think you've already got that as a dependency if you've installed cupsys and foomatic.
Sometimes you need to reboot the computer with power turned on in your printer before you try to configure the printer. This is just to ensure that the Linux kernel has detected your printer and Debian has associated a device node (/dev/lp0) for it.
