Please read the bug report and fix at https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/cups/+bug/420015
usblb isn't used by CUPS any more and thus blacklisted in Ubuntu:
$ cat /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-cups.conf
# CUPS uses libusb directly now, this module is deprecated.
$ lsmod | grep usblp
$ ls -l /dev/usb
That's the entire point. If these were there, my problem wouldn't exist, because hplj1000 would upload the firmware to /dev/usb/lp0. But there is no /dev/usb, and no usblb.
