Linux's drivers for most Epsom printers are in the repository.
Connect printer and switch on, it should be automatically detected and the drivers' auto install

Have a look at this post 87...https://www.linux.org/threads/mint-21-1-vera-looking-good-for-christmas.43163/page-5

I just installed my new Printer and scanner...hope this helps.

This environment can often prevent the installation of drivers that could be easily installed if the distribution is actually installed to a hard drive.
This statement is confusing to me.
-> Why would it matter which drive is used to boot the operating system when managing printer drivers?
 
It may be worth noting the OP's other thread here

The OP is using a USB stick with persistence.

Trying to install a printer on a Flash Drive with persistence...that's something new and we say there are no stupid questions.

I'll come back to that on my tomorrow, have to sign off shortly.

I'll leave a couple of links that may assist in the meantime, on Persistence compared to full install.

There are a few limitations. You can’t modify system files, like the kernel. You can’t perform major system upgrades. You also can’t install hardware drivers. However, you can install most applications. You can even update most installed applications, so you can be sure your persistent USB drive has the latest version of the web browser you prefer.

However, the full install gives you the capability of installing special drivers. E.g. it can then run the Geforce graphics card using NVidia’s own driver - a whole lot more performance that the one-size-fits-all driver in a live installation.

No need. Until now, I did not realize that persistence and a full install are different. (I always have booted external drives with full installs (or installers), never a "persistent" system.

I can understand the advantages and usefulness of a persistent system on a bootable USB for certain situations, and I knew Tails offers it.
