What can I do with this?
openSUSE 11.2 could find an configure the printer perfectly right away on
the very same hardware.

Dunno, but try to ignore the autodetection and add the printer anyway.
That's what I did with mine in the past, it was never detected.

In the meantime I found the reason. The lp module is not loaded at boot time
therefore
YaST can not detect the printer. It's discussed in opensuse forum.
This is the first SUSE/openSUSE release which could not detect a parallel
printer.
IMHO such a change should have been mentioned in the release notes at least.

See https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=673845

In particular https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=673845#c19

If there is still a need to get this "par port printing doesn't work"
addressed from inside YaST one has to file a request in openFATE.

Added the reference to
http://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Most_annoying_bugs_11.4 as any of you
could have done this too.
