yes, it shows that the printer is connected:

Oct 15 09:50:25 helios kernel: [62556.839287] usb 2-1: New USB device found, idVendor=04b8, idProduct=080c
Oct 15 09:50:25 helios kernel: [62556.839367] usb 2-1: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3
Oct 15 09:50:25 helios kernel: [62556.839442] usb 2-1: Product: USB MFP
Oct 15 09:50:25 helios kernel: [62556.839510] usb 2-1: Manufacturer: EPSON

but the output of /usr/lib/cups/backend/usb is still empty.

Thanks for the help.
