Sorry, you are out of luck. As far as I know, the EPSON Stylus COLOR 400
is a Windows-only printer. Part of the printer code (ESC/P2, I guess) is
in the software instead of in the printer hardware. Unless EPSON provides
those source codes (highly unlikely) and someone bothers to write a Linux
driver for it, this printer won't do much good for you.
If it is not too late, return the SC400 and exchange for a SC600 or SC800.
GhostScript 4.03 and especially 5.x support SC500, SC600, SC800, etc.
Hope this helps.
(who is happily using the SC500 here, although I wish I had waited another
half a year to get the SC600 instead. <grin>)
