Using Epson R200 with FC5

I have an Epson Photo R200 USB printer. Using cups and gimp-print, I can find the drivers on the web interface. Funny thing. When I start cups, it says that it sees two printers. The Epson Photo R200, and the Epson Photo R200 USB. Tried both and each individually to no avail. Cannot get a test page to print at all. When I switch to the printers tab in cups, I see this:

EPSON_Stylus_Photo_R200 "Filter "commandtoepson" for printer "EPSON_Stylus_Photo_R200" not available: No such file or directory"

Am I missing something? Perhaps a dynamic link?

im just guessing but, the 'commandtoepson' in the output seems to tell me that something isnt setup right. is there a configuration file you can edit and change this 'commandtoepson' value?

Well, the PPD file /etc/cups/ppd/EPSON etc etc contains the following:

*ModelName: "EPSON Stylus Photo R200"
*ShortNickName: "EPSON Stylus Photo R200"
*NickName: "EPSON Stylus Photo R200 - CUPS+Gimp-Print v4.2.7"
*PSVersion: "(2017.000) 550"
*LanguageLevel: "2"
*ColorDevice: True
*DefaultColorSpace: RGB
*FileSystem: False
*LandscapeOrientation: Plus90
*TTRasterizer: Type42
*RequiresPageRegion All: True
*cupsVersion: 1.1
*cupsModelNumber: "63"
*cupsManualCopies: True
*cupsFilter: "application/vnd.cups-raster 100 rastertoprinter"
*cupsFilter: "application/vnd.cups-command 33 commandtoepson"

among other things. Nowhere else in that file is the commandtoepson mentioned.

In the command.types file is this

# Define the new application/vnd.cups-command filetype...
application/vnd.cups-command string(0,'#CUPS-COMMAND')

so I'm assuming that is the format for the command. (Did I mention I am a complete Linux noob?) So, the only thing I can assume is that commandtoepson is not defined anywhere. Am I mistaken, or should I be looking for a cups-command file? 'Cause there isn't one there.

Any ideas?
