Make sure you have a new enough version of gs (gs-esp generally best)
and the gimp-print plugin that actually supports the C84, as it won't
work with any other model's driver.  The cups http interface should show
Epson C84 on USB when you select the printer port during the setup, and
then you should just be able to pick the C84 from the model list in
cups, assuming it actually is new enough to support the C84.

Of course also make sure the usb drivers are loaded (usb-uhci or
usb-ohci depending on the chipset (ehci for usb2.0)).
