Cups in AntiX-16 does not list my Epson Artisan 730 printer. While MX-16 does and it prints fine.
MX list it as:
Driver: ESCPR.PPD
Driver Version: 1.1

The printer is networked through the router.

Any help getting this printer to work with AntiX is appreciated.

you likely need to install this: printer-driver-escpr

which is probably installed on mx by default.

There would have been a line that said installed or not. I guess you did not see that

Code:
[installed]


Would have been shown if it was installed in AntiX. Just trying to teach you something bro.

Since you might have been wondering if it was installed or not. I bet if you run apt search again. You'll see what I pasted above included now with printer-driver-escpr
