HP Deskjet (USB) & CUPS & Slackware 9.1: Unable to open USB device "usb:/dev/usb/lp0&qu
I can't get my USB printer (HP 990 Cxi) working under CUPS. I've got a Slackware 9.1 box with KDE, CUPS and HPIJS installed. I've added the printer via the localhost:631 pages of CUPS, but when printing a test page, the printer doesn't show any sign of activity and the following messages is shown in the CUPS page for the HP 990:
Discription: HP Deskjet 990 Cxi
Location: Home Office
Printer State: stopped, accepting jobs.
"Unable to open USB device "usb:/dev/usb/lp0": No such device"
Device URI: usb:/dev/usb/lp0
Possibly relevant lines from my boot messages are:

I hope this is a simple newbie oversight of mine and I can get it working with just a few simple adaptations.
