missing parport 0 on Ubuntu

For parallel port on Ubuntu we found some good Fixes
listed as below

parport is missing on your /dev/partport0
then please follow this
on terminal ;
sudo mknod -m 666 /dev/parport0 c 99 0
ur password:
then it should be avialble for use

or

For Edgy or Dapper please remove the lp module from /etc/modules and reboot.
on terminal;

sudo gedit /etc/modules
and remove lp save the file.

This lets cupsys load both the lp and ppdev kernel module and creates /dev/parport0.

Run lpinfo -v from a terminal after rebooting, your parallel printer should be autodetected without problems now.
