it integrates with GIMP-Print Epson rasterizers particularly well, and
better quality outputs on my Epson SC 640 than the old lpd/gs system.
You need to first install CUPS, then compile the gimp-print sources with
support for CUPS.
Turboprint is a commercial option that's a port of an Amiga printer
driver subsystem to linux.
It's supposed to integrate with CUPS in the July 23rd release.
In my experience, it produces very high quality output for
photo-printing, better than Epson's own
drivers on Win32, but it costs money :-).
