  Epson (Printer/Scanner/Multifunction)
  Mint (older version)
  Works fine with some minor problems
What works:

It all works except for ink level information. Also getting it into a position to exchange the ink cartridges is a pain.

What was done to make it work:

You need to download the drivers indirectly from Epson on

http://www.avasys.jp/lx-bin2/linux_e/spc/DL1.do

Two are needed, one for the printer and another for the scanner.

There was also a bit of jiggery pokery to load them in as there was a dependency problem too.

Additional notes:

This equipment belongs to a little old lady who lives across the road from me whom I've converted to Linux Mint 9 32 bit on her Dell laptop.
