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.

Thanks Florian.
