Please see http://download.ebz.epson.net/faq/linux/faq_ls_00003.html.
You need a sufficiently old PNG library for PNG support to work.

As to the support question, your local Epson Support is your best bet at
the moment (considering the absence of any contact information on the
download pages themselves).
