You will probably need to install turboprint: Unfortunately, it isn't cheap, but it works well. It is the only way my Canon printer will work in Linux. Your Epson printer should be supported. Take a look at the list of supported printers. You can also install a limited feature trial version for free.

Screw paying for it.

I use an epson stylus photo r300 with more or less no problems.
you want the guten-print 5 packages (gimp-print beta).
Go to gimp-print website and head for downloads,it should be there.

Works well with cups.
