Is it connected to the Debian system as a local (USB) printer or a
networked printer? 

Nevertheless, I don't want fancy graphics from it, I just need a line
printer to print out configs, logs and such. It comes as a surprise to
me that I would need "drivers" to print ascii text. It's something every
printer understands, including my first dot matrix Epson in 1992 or
something where you could print with "type file.txt > lpt1" in DOS.
