One thing to check for are the permissions of the device file
/dev/ulpt0. Cups needs to be able to read from and write to this device,
so you should add an entry for it to /etc/devfs.rules. It should _not_
be in /etc/devfs.conf, since usb devices can appear at runtime.

add path 'ulpt*' mode 0660 group cups
