It doesn't see or know that there's something on the par port.

What printer and what does 'dmesg' say about it? 

I've been scratching my head a while ago when setting up cups because of the 
same problem, and I found out that if my printer was on while booting, it 
would report something like lpt0: <HP OfficeJet PNP> on ppbus0 suggesting 
something plug and play instead of lpt0: <Printer> on ppbus0 if the printer 
was turned off. You might want to try that (only for first time detection).
