Alternatively, just put this in /etc/devfs.conf:
own ulpt0 root:cups
perm ulpt0 0664
That's all I had to do to get my cx4800 printing with ulpt and cups.
FYI, the cardreader on my cx4800 works when ulpt is NOT loaded or in the
kernel but umass is. Similarly, the scanner only works when neither ulpt nor
umass is loaded or in the kernel. It doesn't attach to uscanner but it works
