Is  devfs_system_ruleset="localrules" set in rc.conf?

However...

This file ulpt0, gets generated when the printer is plugged in, otherwise it's absent.  Every time I start the system up a new file is generated but with the wrong permissions.  What generates this file and how are the permissions set?

Yup, 666 did it, the little devil...

Although "other" shouldn't need r and w from what I remember, 666 is the recommended user-level access for device in FreeBSD. Want to see if adding that w in other helps things along?

I forgot to mention I had changed the perms to crw-rw-r-- but it just does nothing and CUPS reports the job is pending.  The file /dev/ulpt0 BTW, is empty.



Printer works fine on Windoze.

CUPS error log didn't show anything egregious. 

CUPS reports printer status: Paused - "Finished page 2..."

        I had a Canon i550 working fine in PCBSD 7.1 but it fails
to work in 8.0.

        

Used the CUPS facility to find this USB printer but it didn't find it. 
Manually installed it using the BJC-8200 Gutenprint driver I've used
before.  

        

Then trying to print via OO resulted in CUPS reporting a permission
error: "Unable to open device file: /dev/ulpt0 Permission denied":

        

Permissions are: crw-r--r--.  What does the 'c' mean? User is 'root',
group is 'operator'.

        

Tried using the PCBSD printer facility and got nowhere. Can't print
test page either.

        

Any idea how to troubleshoot this?

The "c" means character device. You can try running "chmod 666"
/dev/utlp0, and check the perms again, should be writable now. 



If that works, we'll need to check /etc/devfs.rules, utlp0 is already
supposed to be setperm "666", but it may be failing :(
