I had the same experience with a parallel port. I didn't have time to
deeply investigate, but I did find that it seems as if both the parallel
and USB device options are not offered when using the web interface.
Using lpadmin to delete and re-add the printer also failed, still giving
me the access denied error (to /dev/lpt0).
Just for fun, I tried changing permissions on lpt0, and although that
ended the access denied error message, I still had no success in
printing. The error log simply showed the job had been started.
As said, I didn't have time to troubleshoot, so didn't change debug
levels, etc. I simply downgraded to 1.1.23x and it worked again.
FWIW, in ArchLinux, they did have the parallel device offered as an
option in the web interface, however, I didn't see a USB option.
