I've set up a printer.

location: lpt0
Printer State: idle, accepting jobs
device URI: parallel:/dev/lpt0

Printing the test page does not work, the job is aborted with error: client-error-not-possible
The most probable reason for this is that some user permissions are set incorrectly. We have to analyze this step by step.
1) Try to print directly from the command line:
     # printf "Hello World \f" > /dev/lpt0
   If your printer is connected correctly to your parallel port,
   *something* should be printed out.

as user I get "cannot create /dev/lpt0: Permission denied"
as root I get a blank page
