It's unsupported by free software at the moment.  The gutenprint
driver supports the NX415, which may be entirely compatible, and
it will offer full support when the new model is added.  Note that
this might need the gutenprint from unstable; it will rebuild without
issues for squeeze.

If that doesn't work, Epson provide a proprietary driver (but I
don't think it's that great).
