A minute after sending that, it occurred to me to try another "printer",
like lpg (for gimp driver) instead of lp in cups. I think it worked. Then
I happened to click the "start" button in the
"http://localhost:631/printers"; page, "lp" entry - and it did start!

It seems the local cold is not only freezing my fingers, but my neurones
as well O:-)

What I still don't understand is how the device "/dev/lp0" came to be
deleted, nor why cups, even after a restart, did not recognize the printer
was there again an insisted in not printing.
