printing – Epson Workforce WF-2630 installation issues on Lubuntu 18.04.3

I just bought an Epson printer (Workforce WF-2630) that I connected to my new laptop with Lubuntu 18.04.3 via wifi (Google Cloud print).

In cups, printing options are very limited. I have installed the suggested drivers on, which are the ones that can be downloaded from the Epson website.

Now, after a "non-linear" installation, everything seems to work (scanning, printing).

The problems are about the options (which are present in the Windows driver):

  • eraser and high quality: there is only one possible option, normal quality, no other configurations available.

  • double-sided printing: it is not possible to configure it (in Windows this possibility is managed manually by software).

  • other minor options (borderless printing, better quality in case of color printing of photographs, etc.).

In addition, it seems that I can change the configuration only with CUPS (system-config-printer), also when the printer is connected with a USB cable …

Can anybody help me?

Thanks in advance!
