I can see it. I created one called Liger. In Liger's case, I didn't  
go through printers.conf and change usb to file to get it to work...  
I kept its Device URI at usb:/dev/ulpt0. On previous threads, it was  
suggested changing the usb to file to get the printers to work, and  
it did get the printer to work for me... only locally though.
