I have a Epson Stylus T10, a usb printer. Then I have an Ubuntu 13.04 (up-to-date). I have install escputils but it requires my the device file of my printer. Many forums say it is on /dev/usb/lp0 but I found nothing like that. Some also say it is on /dev/lp0 and again I don't find any lp0 file on that folder. Is there any way to locate my printers device file?

EDIT: I think this might help:
