I think those epson drivers are for line printers, not inkjets.

If it's an inkjet, I'm not too surprised. Did you install the
cupsys-driver-gimpprint and the cupsomatic-ppd packages?

Point a web browser at http://localhost:631/
The web interface is really convenient and it will list all the
available drivers. Pick the one that is closest to your model.

Is that where your printcap is? Likely not. Here's the relevant
portions of my smb.conf :
printing = cups
load printers = yes
; A "magic" section.
comment = All Printers
available = yes
directory = /tmp
printable = yes
public = yes
writable = yes
create mode = 0666
browseable = yes
guest ok = yes
guest account = nobody

parse the the printcap to find printers will find the names.
