There is no trace of lp? :-?

I can be wrong but it looks like your printer port is not being
detected/recognized by the system (no kernel modules loaded and nothing
But I'm not sure what's now the default in squeeze. In lenny (although
I don't have a printer connected to LPT) I get:
sm01@stt008:~$ ls -l /dev/lp0
crw-rw---- 1 root lp 6, 0 jun 3 07:48 /dev/lp0
sm01@stt008:~$ lsmod | grep lp
lp 14724 0
parport 41904 3 ppdev,lp,parport_pc
sm01@stt008:~$ dmesg | grep lp0
[ 41.186048] lp0: using parport0 (interrupt-driven).
And all that means that at least the system has detected the port and
kernel loaded the right modules to manage it.
Maybe someone with Squeeze can give you additional information on this,
I dunno if there was a change on this :-?
- Why did you said in your first message that "permissions for lp
are 0666"? Where did you see that? Or did the port dissapear
- What's your printer brand and model?
- How did you configured the printer, via CUPS web wizard?
