I have installed the libc5 package of gs (file name for archie:
gs-aladdin_5.03-0.99_i386.deb) and it worked out of the box.  For
Stylus Color I use magicfilter with the following lines in its config

~/Incoming$ more /usr/sbin/stc-normal-filter 
#! /usr/sbin/magicfilter
# Magic filter setup file for 720 DPI Epson Stylus Color series 
# This file has been automatically adapted to your system.

# PostScript
0       %!              filter  /usr/bin/gs @stc600p.upp -q -sPAPERSIZE=a4 -dSAFER -dNOPAUSE -sOutputFile=- - 
0       \004%!          filter  /usr/bin/gs @stc600p.upp -q -sPAPERSIZE=a4 -dSAFER -dNOPAUSE -sOutputFile=- - 

# ... more lines follow ...

The other lines are identical to the filter create with

The @stc600p.upp means: read options from the file stc600p.upp, where
the uniprint driver is selected and some options for the driver are
selected.  There is also the stc600ih.upp file for 1440x720 printing.


I haven't lost my mind -- it's backed up on tape somewhere.
