Hello Gene,

An update to Fedora 7 might fix your problem:
Here are the files installed bij default in Fedora7-x86_64:


However depending on your Epson printer I wouldn't expect
any wonders from the gutenprint drivers.
Though the placement of the print borders and the general
quality of the print have improved markedly the colors are
still abominable (at least on my Epson Stylus Photo R200).
For quality photo prints I have to use the Epson software
supplied with the printer under Windows.
Linux remains nog go.
