I'm trying to set up the All-in-one Epson SX535WD wireless printer to work on Linux CentOS 6.9 (32 bit arch), both via CLI and GUI. Epson's website no longer lists drivers for this model for Linux, so I resorted to those listed in openprinting.org and elsewhere around the web. I created a default "epson" printer that however doesn't execute the printing jobs I've been sending it. How so?
First of all, I tried to install the recommended driver (as listed by openprinting) epson-inkjet-printer-201106w-1.0.1-1lsb3.2.i486.rpm but something is already suspiciously wrong:

How can this rpm be "already installed" and at the same time be "not installed"?
The "epson" printer is the default physical printer in the home network; it can print on both sides of a page (it does so in Win 7) though the GUI doesn't enable this feature while the CLI says it supports the following options but I'm not sure it really does given the fact that so far I've not been able to print any document over the wifi connection:

epson is ready
Is the URI somehow wrong? Maybe wrong protocol?
Any help is surely appreciated.
PS1. I re-discovered Epson's download website for drivers: link. Just insert "Linux" and "sx535wd" (OS and printer's model nr.), press enter and you'll be forwarded to the proper download page.
