This might help someone. I have an old HP LaserJet 5000n printer with a by-pass tray (tray 1), A4 in tray 2 and A3 in tray 3. It has been working for donkeys' years with Linux Lite and Windows. However, come a LinuxLite 5 install the A3 option vanished when following the default printer install path (which loads as "HP LaserJet 5000 Series pcl3, hpcups 3.20.3")  :( . However, it does offer A3 if I choose "HP LaserJet 5000 - CUPS+Gutenprint v5.3.3" - which also gives more useful tray descriptions  :) .
Desktop: Running LL5 on second HD in ACEPC model MK1: "Mini PC 4GB RAM 64GB ROM Windows 10 Celeron J3455 Processor Mini Computer Dual HDMI, Support mSATA / 2.5 inches SSD/HDD 4K, Dual Band WiFi, Gigabit Ethernet, USB 3.0". Don't normally use the supplied W10. Also use LL on netbook (Using xrandr to "expand" the screen) and various old laptops. NAS drive and web server hosted by Raspberry Pi's.
