I am trying to get a Samsung ML5000a printer to work on my FreeBSD
6.2-RELEASE-p3 box. The Machine has a EPIA Mini-ITX board which has *no*
parallel port.


The printer is connected to /dev/unlpt0

crw-rw----  1 root  cups    0,  61 May 26 17:18 /dev/unlpt0

/var/cache/cups is writable by the cups group:

drwxrwxr-x  2 root  cups  512 Apr  3 21:43 cups

If I issue 'echo test > /dev/unlpt0' I get

bash: /dev/unlpt0: Device busy

Changing the URI of the printer in printers.conf from

usb:/dev/unlpt0 to file:/dev/unlpt0

did not help. The effect is, that cups does not start anymore and i get

Unable to open output file "file:/dev/unlpt0" - Device busy.

in /var/log/cups/error_log

I'm at a loss :(
