I have a HP desktop running Linux with Ubuntu software. I have purchased a Epson ET-2720 printer but can not find a driver to support it. Any recommendations? I can print from my Laptop which is running Linux. Thank you.

I don't have an Epson printer to test, but this link looks promising:

In Redhat/Fedora the driver looks like this.

Hi James,

If you can print from one Linux computer and not the other, I wonder
  1. are you printing via USB from the laptop and trying to print via WIFI from the desktop?
  2. What Linux distributions are your running
If you can print from one Linux computer, you might check to see what PPD you are using there.

Though I couldn't find the ET2720 model specifically, https://tutorialforlinux.com/?s=Epson+ET-2760 might give you insight.

You can also check out https://openprinting.org/printer for a driver, a forum section and some notes for installing.
