When I installed cups, right at the end of the installation process,
there was a notice instructing that you have to create a devfs.rules file
in /etc with the above contained within. Also, there has to be this entry
in the rc.conf file:
It seems to me that there was another instruction, but I can't remember
what it was. I don't want to lead you down the proverbial path here,
but I followed those instructions, installed both of my printers with
ppd files, and everything went swimmingly. Previous to that I could
never get the printers to work. I would try to print a test page and
get a "permission denied" message, or some such thing. I may have saved
the instructions from the installation process. I'll look for them, and
if I find the whole thing I'll post it here.
