Printer will not print after receiving command from Linux.


Epson printer is receiving print command from linux mint cinnamon, but only prints blank papers. Usually prints 4 blank papers and stops. Any suggestions?

Incorrect print driver (filter) configured perhaps?

What is reported by the following?
Code:
egrep -i "name|filter" /etc/cups/ppd/*
