Note that you *MUST* turn off the so-called "D4" mode of the parallel interface of this printer in order to get it to work. To turn off the D4 mode, follow these instructions (from http://files.support.epson.com/pdf/sc760_/sc760_f1.txt):

Turn on the printer while holding down the Cleaning button (under the inkdrop icons) The paper-out light (under the "paper" icons) will start blinking. Release the Cleaning button and *IMMEDIATELY* press and hold the Load/Eject button (under the "paper" icon) and hold it for about 20 seconds. The Paper Out, Color Ink Out, and Black Ink Out LEDs will light. Release the Load/Eject button. Press the Cleaning Button until the Black Ink Out LED lights. This means D4 mode is off. Press the Load/Eject button and you're done.

I used the epson740 upp ghostscript driver, and wrote a quick magicfilter config (stylus760-filter), available here to use that driver. Then I plopped it into /etc/magicfilter, ran /usr/sbin/magicfilterconfig, and chose the stylus760 filter.

Everything works except I couldn't figure out how to convince magicfilter to add an EOF character after every print-job, so the pages are not ejected by themselves. Sorry :) Hopefully someone else can figure this out. I've added another magicfilter, that I have written, it fixes the eject bug at the cost of removing recode support, download it

Actually it works great for me even with D4 mode in auto mode (the default).

Ed: Probably works best with the stp driver.
