Yes, because escputil belongs to the 'usb' group. It should belong to the same group as /dev/ulpt0, which should be 'cups'. A 'chown :cups escputil' should fix that. > Another problem is that when I executed it in root, it showed > > #escputil -iur /dev/ulpt0 > > Cannot open /dev/ulpt0 read/write: Device busy > > There is no printing job, and in the control panel in kde I can see that > printers state is Idle (accepting jobs). I think you need to drop the -r option, (and -u as well). Cups is probably already using the device.
