Hello Daniel, 

It's weird: I *could* print this morning, and yes: I *can* print with 
the live cd *now*. I *copied* now the livecd cupsd.conf to /etc/cups on 
my hoary box, but *still* got the message:
Unterbrochen (interrupted): Unable to open parallel port device file 
"/dev/lp0": Permission denied

$ sudo  echo -en "\rHallo\r\f" > /dev/lp0
doesnt work, but it *did* this morning, and with the live cd.

> ls -l /dev/lp0
