I'm unable to get a WF-2010 printer working with Kubuntu 12.04 (using the KDE printer settings). I've downloaded the amd64 drivers from Epson and installed them with dpkg. However, nothing much happens after install: a directory is created in opt but no additional drivers are available. I can manually unzip the PPD file I need, and install it, but I'm unable to print a test page (stays in the stopped state).

How am I supposed to install these Epson drivers?

The driver/setup do not work correctly if '/opt' is a symlink. By changing my layout of my disk and making '/opt' a normal folder the install and printer worked without problem.
