I previously had this working with Ubuntu 10.x, and just recently upgraded to 12.04 (64 bit).
I had installed the driver from Epson: epson-inkjet-printer-escpr_1.2.0-1lsb3.2_i386.deb, and now also tried: epson-inkjet-printer-escpr_1.2.2-1lsb3.2_i386.deb but neither worked.

Preparing to replace epson-inkjet-printer-escpr:i386 1.2.2-1lsb3.2 (using epson-inkjet-printer-escpr_1.2.2-1lsb3.2_i386.deb) ... Unpacking replacement epson-inkjet-printer-escpr:i386 ... cups stop/waiting cups start/running, process 28199 dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of epson-inkjet-printer-escpr:i386: epson-inkjet-printer-escpr:i386 depends on lsb (>= 3.2). dpkg: error processing epson-inkjet-printer-escpr:i386 (--install): dependency problems - leaving unconfigured Processing triggers for libc-bin ... ldconfig deferred processing now taking place Errors were encountered while processing: epson-inkjet-printer-escpr:i386
The issue seems to be: epson-inkjet-printer-escpr:i386 depends on lsb (>= 3.2).
I have lsb 4.0 installed, but maybe it's not the i386 version?

I have also run
sudo apt-get -f install to no avail.
