      Using a single-core Intel Atom netbook, I’ve installed antix from antiX-19_386-core.iso, and have added an LXDE desktop. I need to download & install printer drivers to recognise an attached USB printer (Epson Stylus Photo R285), and then download & install the relevant drivers & libraries. To save precious time experimenting with different files that might/might not be needed, could someone tell me if the following would be enough to get the printer up-and-running, or if I need other files, or just different ones from those listed below?

      system-config-printer
      system-config-printer-common
      system-config-printer-udev
      cups
      printer-driver-gutenprint
      cups-pdf
      printer-driver-cups-pdf

      Many thanks for any feedback on this – any help is much appreciated.

        There is also a printer-driver for epson printers installed on full by default.

          Many thank caprea.
          Presumably, I’ll need to install this in addition to the files I listed above, or does it replace some of these?
