This is a URI. It is used to communicate with the printer. *Substitute*
for URI in

  sudo lpadmin -p envy6020e -v "URI" -m everywhere

(Note the double quotes round the URI).

Test printing with

  lp -d envy6020e /etc/nsswitch.conf

How's that?

Thank you for your help so far.
I have been busy all day and have not had time to try it out yet.
I must read what these commands do first also
