This isn't a solution, but have you tried printing the envelope page to
PDF, then printing that with a PDF viewer?

As far as I know Libreoffice does respect the page definition for PDF
creation, then you can work around the lack of proper integration of the LO
print dialogs to debian outside of LibreOffice... I do this type of thing
for custom pages all the time, but I'm still on LO6.3 running on Ubuntu
18.04.  I have a portable instance of 7.0.3 but I didn't fully test my
suggestion, only that the print dialog still looks similar to that in 6.3.

I'm running Debian/Bullseye and the printer is attached via USB cable.
My LibreOffice version is My CUPS version is 2.3.3op1. The
printer is using the Epson ESC/P-R driver.

The printer works fine but one thing is driving me crazy. I need to
print to a 244mm x  149mm envelope sometimes. This should load through
the rear paper slot which is provided for this purpose. However I can't
tell Writer to use this size. The envelope is defined as that size but I
can only select one of a list of paper sizes for that printer in the
Print dialogue.

I have the same problem when I try to load the envelope into a paper
tray. I can tell the printer what size it is but that still doesn't show
up in Writer when I try to print.

To make things weird, a number of the paper sizes are given as "User
Defined: 9.999in x 9.999in" but I have no idea how they got there -
although some seem to be standard sizes (photos, envelopes, etc.).

Through trial and error (one or more errors per trial), I've come close
to getting an envelope to print reasonably without spraying ink outside
the paper range. However, the envelope document only vaguely resembles
what is printed. And I have to go through this again if I try to print
to a different paper size.

Is there a way I can tell Writer to use the paper size of the document
so that it actually prints the way I set it up?
