Unhappy install usb printer in debian

Hi friends, I have a problem installing my printer Hp Laserjet 1010 on my debian system.

I look at a lot of sources, including www linuxprinting com, and I did all that they say, but i can not print into my printer.

The usb module is working, I can see my printer in /proc/bus/usb/devices, for this I think that the usb port is ok.

After i do the command 'chnod c 180 0 /dev/usb/lp0', and worked ok.

And finally i have installed the lprng printing system, configured and working.

But when I send a job in the queue, it doesn't work, and if I exec 'ls / > /dev/usb/lp0', it doesn't give any error message, and I don't know what i need more....

I have executed all my config's commands to show you what I'm saying:

server:/dev# lsmod
