I don't understand why you guys even propose installing drivers from
Epson when printer-driver-escpr package is in Debian and should be
correct for the printer in question? Is there some established reason to
think it won't work? Or you just didn't do your homework?

I get that this saga probably never goes anywhere but I don't understand
this advice, especially from Andrew. It seems to run counter to the Debian
principle of using software that's actually packaged and tested by Debian.
