give me:

-bash :  /dev/lp0 Permission Denied

/dev   directory have:

drwxr-xr-x    9 root     root        24576 abr 23 12:37 dev

/dev/lp0  have:

crw-rw----    1 root     lp         6,   0 mar 14  2002 /dev/lp0


Because you're trying to pipe the output of "ls -all" to /dev/lp0, and unless you're root or in the lp group, you don't have write access.
