Clarification:  Make sure that you have read/write access to /dev/lp0. 
lp0 probably is owned by lp or something like it.  This device is
usually set to:

rw-rw---- which means that you have two choices:

1.  Change the mode of the device by typing in

chmod o+rw lp0

2.  Adding your login to the lp group.

How to do that is a linux forum question and has been discussed in other
threads on this forum.
