    Here is the output of uname -a
    Code:
    [root@localhost usb]# uname -a
    Linux localhost 2.6.11-6mdk #1 Tue Mar 22 16:04:32 CET 2005 i686 Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 1500MHz unknown GNU/Linux
    So, the kernel version is not the problem. I did the mknod command that is in chapter 2 of the FAQ. After doing so, I went back to the cups administrator to see if it worked. But, I am still getting the 'Unable to open USB device "usb:/dev/usb/lp0": No such device' error. What to do from here?

    browse through /dev/usb folder........see if lp0 is there............

    .............login as root and try using cups again..........it might be a permission issue

    I logged on as root and took a few snapshots of my /dev/usb/ folder. Do I need more than read perms on lp0? folder listing

    Then I went onto http://localhost:631 as root to see if it made any difference. I still recieved the same messages. cups administrator

    Wow. This has proven to be one of the most frustrating things so far!!!

    one quick thing................i think you need write permission...........i believe the way linux works is that you write to the file lp0 and the printer reads the file.........

    see if it makes a difference..........

    i will keep helping out.............my printer is setup differently.........i have it connected through lp0 to vmware. i use it on win xp since it does not have a linux driver.
