Binary package hint: cupsys

My Epson stylus CX3200 USB printer will not print.
The first time I turned it on it was automatically configured, an applet came up saying "configuring new printer" and then "ready to print". But it doesn't start printing. The applet control panel says "processing" but nothing comes out.

I have tried modifying, changing drivers, deleting, manually re-adding
the printer etc, both through the KDE control panel as well as the CUPS
web interface. It mostly only made it worse.

At one point after trying to manually add the printer through the CUPS interface, the heading page for that printer would be:
  Gutenprint_USB_Printer_1 "Unable to open parallel port device file: Permission denied"

This is lpinfo output:

Attaching Error log file.

It's cupsys version 1.3.7-1ubuntu3
It's hal version 0.5.11~rc2-1ubuntu8.1

It's KUBUNTU 8.04, installed from CD-rom, then upgraded with apt-get.
This printer has been working quite well with all previous ubuntu versions since dapper drake.
