The CX5000 doesn't appear to be in the gutenprint project but similar numbers are.
When adding the printer if you manually select Epson - CX5100 does it work, or some other similar model number?

The ubuntu documentation for local printing can help you get started to select the driver

Choose System > Administration > Printing. Click "New printer" and follow the instructions. Your printer Epson Stylus CX5000 is supported.

Hope it helps.
