I'm trying to install Epson Stylus SX420W. I have PPD file, I connect printer with USB and install it with PPD. It recognizes printer and install it but it gives this message Printer needs epson-espcr-wrapper package before printing. Install it..

What is epson-espcr-wrapper package? How can I install it?

sudo apt-cache search escpr


epson-escpr - transitional dummy package for epson-escpr printer driver
libescpr-dev - printer driver for Epson Inkjet - library development files
libescpr1 - printer driver for Epson Inkjet - shared library
printer-driver-escpr - printer driver for Epson Inkjet that use ESC/P-R

I suggest to install printer-driver-escpr.
epson-escpr-wrapper is a cups filter and is likely to be found in /usr/lib/cups/filter/.

If that does not work out, download and install the deb package from openprinting.org.

sudo dpkg -i epson-inkjet-printer-escpr_{version}{arch}.deb
