I've got two printers. Both are EPSON LQ 300 printers. One is
connected via USB and the other via the parallel port. The one with
the USB port when powered on, F16 detects it as a printer and prints a
test page. It works fine even with gedit. But the parallel port one is
not detected such and the ports listed for installation are serial
port 1 and serial port 2. It is not recognized as "EPSON LQ 300"
printer, but USB one was recognized as such.

So the driver for parallel port one, I have to manually select the
driver, but LQ 300 is not in the list.
