Regarding this last post of mine - this was all done with no Iinternet access. I don't know if that makes any difference.
No problem with what you've provided, Bill, but you will need an internet connection to install any of the packages from Linux Lite's Repositories, that is, what you see as available in Synaptic Package Manager.

The
"missing driver" error stating that the "/usr/lib/cups/filter/hpcups" needs to be installed
... can be performed through Synaptic. I'll show you with a screenshot what you are looking for



SCREENSHOT 1 - HPCUPS IN SYNAPTIC

In my LL 5.0, it is already installed, but maybe not in yours? So, from the "front page" of Synaptic, head to near top right and click Search, then type in

hpcups (you can see from the left it appears)

and you should get a page similar to mine. printer-driver-hpcups is what you are after.

Where my cursor is, click the line, it will highlight. You may also see a summary in the lower pane.

Right-click and mark for installation.

Go to icon labelled Apply and click.

Follow the prompts and popups to completion.

Once that is done, try your process with
AppSocket/HP JetDirect
again.

Let us know how you go, and if it works OK you can try the same with the Epson.

Cheers
