Thanks for your reply,
Sadly the wolvix cups has NO D series drivers at all. (I've tried most other Epson drivers to no avail). It's not an important issue to me - I use Zenwalk for my day to day work - but it's a shame for others trying to use wolvix which is otherwise a good distro.
Having said that, I had no luck with the D68 in Linux Mint KDE either. The only distro I've found that works 100% (for my purposes)is good old zenwalk 5.0. - light, fast, and stable.
