It says "Device is busy".
One thing to check for are the permissions of the device file /dev/ulpt0. Cups needs to be able to read from and write to this device, so you should add an entry for it to /etc/devfs.rules. It should _not_ be in /etc/devfs.conf, since usb devices can appear at runtime. (The first line is only needed when you haven't already got a ruleset name.) [foo=10] add path 'ulpt*' mode 0660 group cups And in /etc/rc.conf you should add: devfs_system_ruleset="foo" Hope this helps.
