    I just recently set up an Epson Stylus under Arch. If only I wrote down what exactly I did.

    In general, you can find the driver for your printer model here.

    You need to download the source code, compile and install it.

    You also needs cups installed. Once the cups daemon is running and the driver is installed, go to http://localhost:631/ then Adding Printers and Classes and then Add Printer, and your printer should be listed to add.
