I need to print in an Epson TM-U220PD model M188D for receipts (without cups support), I used to write in a terminal [text] > /dev/lp0 but now usblp is deprecated. I can use this printer enabling the usblp kernel module, but this action disable cups.

There's other way to print, maybe using CUPS? How can I find the new path to the printer?

CUPS comes with versions of the SysV lp and BSD lpr commands, both of which are able to print text files or data from stdin.
