Re: epson stylus 600 setup problem

dlm@lymond:~$ls -l /dev/lp*
crwxr-x---    1 root     lp         6,   0 Jul  5  2000 /dev/lp0
crw-rw----    1 root     lp         6,   1 Jul  5  2000 /dev/lp1
crw-rw----    1 root     lp         6,   2 Jul  5  2000 /dev/lp2

Did you attempt my previous command as root or as a normal user? If as a
user, you need to exec this command as root "adduser SOMEONE lp"
(replace SOMEONE with your username).

When I do that I get the following:
[root@lymond]#adduser dlm lp
The user `dlm' is already a member of lp.

that's what's so frustrating..

It seems lp0 is only writeable by root, so perhaps you could try to either print as root or do a 'chmod g+w /dev/lp0'.
