I run Gentoo ~x86. Recently upgraded to 1.1.21rc1 from 1.1.20. Using the web interface to setup my printer (an epson c42ux) resulted in DeviceURI of usb:/dev/usblp0. However, my system only has /dev/usb/lp0.
I'm using DEVFS. Perhaps /dev/usblp0 is correct for udev or something like that?
(don't think it matters but I'm running the gimp-print drivers 4.2.6)

This is a fallback problem.
When CUPS failed to detect USB device (it happens when user uses udev
or devfs), CUPS uses /dev/usblp0 as default. /dev/usblp0 is invalid
for many FHS compatible Linux distributions.
Here is a patch.

Applied kmuto's patch (there were actually two places this needed to happen) for 1.1.21rc2.
Fixed in CVS - the anonymous CVS repository will be updated at midnight EST.
