Epson AcuLaser 1750 on Ubuntu 64bits

There is no linux driver however the Xerox Phaser 6000 is compatible and the driver can be found here:
http://www.support.xerox.com/support/phaser-6000/downloads/engb.html?operatingSystem=linux&fileLanguage=en_GB

One issue is that the driver is 64 bits only so to make it work I had to install a 32 bits compatibility layer

$ sudo apt-get install libc6:i386 libncurses5:i386 libstdc++6:i386 libcupsimage2:i386

Instruction are similar to what is posted here for the Xerox 6010

In my various attemps, I had to remove the driver, restart cups, install the 32bits layers and THEN reinstall the driver, then the printer. In the printers applet, the model of the printer is 'Xerox Phaser 6000B'
