Yay..!! I could finally use EPSON Stylus CX1500 printer on my Ubuntu.
EPSON Stylus CX1500 is an All-In-One (multifunctional)printer. Besides printing, it can scan and act as photocopier by itself. (ie, for photocopy stuff, it does not have to be connected to any machine.)
I don't believe this printer made it to the big outlet stores. It was available for Online purchase from Epson.com, and that's how I ended up getting this one.
I am yet to use it as a scanner in Linux, have heard that SANE finally supports this model.
As for printing, even though this model is not listed in the Epson printers list in gnome-cups-manager, I found that adding it as a Stylus-C42UX printer would let you print stuff.
Here is my lpstat o/p for reference:
$ lpstat -t
