I've been trying to get my Samsung ML-1710 running under FreeBSD with
CUPS.  Installation of everything seems to have gone o.k., but I can't
print a test page.  I looked in the log file and got:

D [22/Sep/2004:12:50:55 -0400] start_process("/usr/local/libexec/cups/backend/us
b", 0xbfbf0330, 0xbfbef6a0, 12, 13, 11)
I [22/Sep/2004:12:50:55 -0400] Started backend /usr/local/libexec/cups/backend/u
sb (PID 242) for job 5.
D [22/Sep/2004:12:50:55 -0400] ProcessIPPRequest: 5 status_code=0
E [22/Sep/2004:12:50:55 -0400] PID 241 stopped with status 2!

Running /usr/local/libexec/cups/backend/usb manually gives:
	aleph# /usr/local/libexec/cups/backend/usb
	direct usb:/dev/ulpt0 "Unknown" "USB Printer #1"
	direct usb:/dev/unlpt0 "Unknown" "USB Printer #1 (no reset)"

Anyone know what this means/what I should do?

Here's everything from dmesg which may be relevant:

Printer page in the admin tool says:
 	Samsung ML-1710 Foomatic/gdi (recommended)  	
	Description: Samsung ML1710
	Location: localhost
	Printer State: idle, accepting jobs.
	Device URI: usb:/dev/ulpt0

Hopefully that's enough info.
