Thank you, that helped some.
It seems that I was loosing lp over a reboot - but I have to investigate. Just 
for now hwinfo shows:

Parallel 00.0: 10900 Printer
  [Created at parallel.154]
  Unique ID: ffnC.AOY5FSxcvwC
  Parent ID: YMnp.ecK7NLYWZ5D
  Hardware Class: printer
  Device: "DESKJET 920C"
  Device File: /dev/lp0
  Config Status: cfg=new, avail=yes, need=no, active=unknown
  Attached to: #11 (Parallel controller)

Anyway I still don't get a printout. CUPS-setup via http://localhost:631 still 
does not show lp. But with KDE I can configure the printer, CUPS then sees 
it. But when I submit a printjob I get the error: "Printer not connected".

I will close shop now and go on tomorrow.

Thank you again
Cheers, Eike
