This is a puzzle to stimulate you:
I am installing an Epson XP-830 printer in Debian (wheezy). Openprinting doesn't list it (it's new), but the -820 seems like a close match. (Epson's own website also gives similar if not identical instructions for both.) See below:
Open's instructions are to use the driver epson-escpr. I already have it installed. It is the transitional dummy package to transition to uniformly named printer-driver-escpr, which I also have installed.
Oddly, Epson's website asks to install the SOURCE package of printer-driver-escpr, epson-inkjet-printer-escpr, and use the latter's ppd's.
Since I have the "approved" binary, printer-driver-escpr, I don't see the need to download the source. Is this reasonable here? I want to proceed in a clean form.
The binary says it contains .ppd's in compressed form. How do I find them? I intend to use CUPS, but need to find that ppd.
Success so far would be to add the printer in CUPS, and find the ppd from the binary package.
