I don't know about Epson for sure, but HP should be easy.
Install cups and cups-pdf : pkg install cups cups-pdf
Build hplip from ports :
#if you don't have /usr/ports, run : portsnap fetch extract
make config # choose to build with qt4, not qt5
#hplip-qt5 currently omits the sip module - big problem
make install clean
You should be able to run Epson under cups and HP via hplip.
The CUPS web interface is : http://localhost:631/admin
Before you try accessing CUPS interface, put this in /etc/rc.conf and
To set up HP printer, run hp-setup (as normal user)
If your printer is visible to root and not visible to the normal user,
you likely have a permissions problem. Run usbconfig as root to find out
the ugen ID of the HP printer (I presume this is a USB printer). Let's
say it is ugen2.3
Put the following in /etc/devfs.conf :
perm usb/2.3.0 0664
Then run : /etc/rc.d/devfs restart
