Ha! Epson! Sorry for the confusion! Of course Epson != HP.
Test if CUPS detects the printer. There seems to be a Linux
proprietary driver for the Epson L 380, maybe it can be used
on FreeBSD, too? (FreeBSD is able to run Linux software.)
But as I said, first check what CUPS can autodetect itself,
maybe everything you need is already there.

for consistency as suggested by OS entries. ;-)
