One thing you need to check is the access rights to the printer device.

The device that you want to print to (e.g. /dev/lpt0) needs to belong to
the "cups" group (which should exist, along with an unprivileged user
named "cups"), and that group needs to have read/write access.

If you are using a parallel port printer, add the following to
devfs.conf(5) and reboot, or use chown/chmod to correctly set the values:

  # Give cups printer access
  own     lpt0    root:cups
  perm    lpt0    0660

If you are using for instance a USB printer, you need to add the
following to your ruleset in devfs.rules(5)and reboot, or use
chown/chmod to correctly set the values:

  add path 'ulpt*' mode 0660 group cups
