Were the modules lp, parport, and parport_pc loaded during boot?
Did udev create /dev/lp0?
(My Sid box currently does not create /dev/lp0 unless I modprobe lp.)
Well-guessed! /dev/lp0 did not exist. I created it with
# modprobe lp
and restarted CUPS with
# /etc/init.d/cupsys stop
# /etc/init.d/cupsys start
The printer now works. This seems to have been reported as udev bug
#351668: Parallel port /dev/lp0 is not created on boot.
