For the records:
with latest portstree - some patches have been commited during the last
days - and a
# portupgrade -arf
which took some time, print/cups and print/hplip now will recognize my
USB-printer correctly. ulpt doesn't have to be removed from the kernel,
I tested that.
Of course permissions for the ugen device have to be set so that cups
can access it.
Thanks to everyone who repaired the ports!
