parrport enable

just wondering how to enable parrport0 for all users on my computer? can't seem to find it in /dev.

Also how do you include hidden files in your search?

parport.o is the name of a kernel module the runs the parallel port driver. You can run
modprobe parport
to load it into the system. (NB: It has only one r).

The name of the first parallel port device is /dev/lp0

To include hidden files in a search depends on what you are using to search with. Something like this will work:
ls -ar .
(List all the contents of the current directory recursively).

Hope that helps,
