Epiphany browser print error


When I try to print a web page using the epiphany browser, I receive the following error message:

"There was a problem printing because the paper size you specified is not supported by you printer."

I can print fine using Konqueror, although the font size is a little small.
The paper size specified is "Letter".
My printer is an Epson Stylus CX5200.
I'm running Debian (Sarge) from a net-install.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Kent R. Frazier (K5KNT)

If I remember correctly, I'm using cups.

During my initial install, I selected the Print server from the list of software to install.
When I tried to configure my printer using the foomatic-gui no driver was listed. After doing some searching on the web, I installed the following files using apt-get install :
foomatic-db, foomatic-db-engine, foomatic-bin, foomatic-db-gimp-print, foomatic-filters, foomatic-db-hpijs, foomatic-filters-ppd, hpijs, printconf, python-foomatic.

I'm not on my Debian system at the moment, so I can't check for sure. This information is from my install notes.

SOLVED

Problem solved:

It seems that the browser was giving me multiple choices for my printer. The default choice was "Epson-CX5200@:64". Other choices were:
"xp_ps_spooldir_HOME_Xprintjobs@:64"
"xp_pdf_spooldir_HOME_Xprintjobs@:64"
"postscript/stylus_cx5200"

By choosing the last one (postscript/stylus_cx5200) I was able to print. I have no idea what the other three are.
