Couple that with my recent discovery that debian seems to be shipping the
cups from apple, last updated by its author in 2019.

Did your investigations involve reading a changelog?

whazzat? Trolling thru /usr/share/ looking for those is a pita. And far more often, a waste of time, not containing a useful amount of data.

Given that clue, I would be surprised to find a "cups" driver in the debian
repo's capable of driving a newer epson product.

Please give yourself a treat and use 'lpinfo -m' :).

Thanks, I just did and it appears to show both brothers installed drivers and the driverless, but driverless is not complete for either printer, where the makers ppd is. for the laser, toner would last forever, very thin, faint, had to read output, the mfcj6920dw only uses top tray, which is $8 for 50 sheets glossy photo paper. Tray 2, the bottom one has up to 350 pages of duplex copy paper, the obvious choice, but the driverless driver doesn't use it.

Thanks Brian.

Cheers, Gene Heskett.
