      Log into your SLUG and see if there is a /dev/lp0 device.

      There is /dev/lp0 through /dev/lp4.  lp0 and lp4 accept cat input, but don't do anything to the printer.  lp1-3 say device doesn't exist.
      Just so we've got all the bases covered, is both ends of the USB cable plugged in?

      Yes I just double checked that.
      Did you give both devices a reboot (power off/on)?  I'd power them both off, then power on the printer, and then once its "ready" I'd power on the SLUG.

      I just tried that and no joy.  Here is the text of /var/log/messages when I turn the printer on

      Thanks for the ideas Darren, any others?
