Under Debian I heard CUPS is the right utility. So i installed Cups and tried to configure it with my printer. The problem is, that Cups only gives me the possibility to connect the printer to a serial port - but my printer is on the paralell port.
The only time I've seen this, the (self-built: my bad) kernel was not
set up properly to use the parallel port for printing.  Take a look at

Do the appropriate grep on .config.

And do /dev/lp0 and/or /dev/lp1 exist at all?
