/dev/usb/lp0 permissions problem


I've spent waaaaay too much time trying to get this to work. I should've asked in the first place.

Running SUSE 9.1, kernel 2.6.5.
Code:
linux:/dev # lsmod | grep usb
usbserial              29040  0
hci_usb                12544  6
bluetooth              45924  17 rfcomm,l2cap,hci_vhci,hci_uart,hci_usb
usbcore               103644  6 usbserial,hci_usb,uhci_hcd,ehci_hcd
Code:
linux:/dev # ls -l | grep lp0
crw-rw----   1 root lp      180,   0 2004-04-06 08:27 usblp0
Code:
linux:/dev/usb # ls -l | grep lp0
crw-rw----   1 root lp   180,   0 2004-04-06 08:27 lp0
My USB printer is not detected. CUPS is installed and appears to be working; I can get to :631 and things. When I run YAST2 to configure the printer, it detects nothing. Trying to add a printer on /dev/usb/lp0 gives the following message:
Quote:
There was a problem while printing.

It seems that the device is not properly configured or you do not have permissions to write to it. Did you run the configuration program as user 'root'?
So it seems to not be a driver issue, but a more basic one of getting Linux to even SEE the printer. Any help would be welcomed

Perhaps I should crosslink this to the SUSE section; maybe it's a SUSE-specific problem.
