Gutenprint (print/gutenprint, prints from GIMP) supports the 3880, and 
maybe the 4900 series.  I've had some success with other Epson printers, 
although it's difficult to get predictable results without color 
calibration.  Actually, the latest version of GIMP and Gutenprint might 
support that now, in which case I'd like to hear how to set it up.
