Parallel port printing (Ubuntu) Linux

If you are having problems getting your VMWare on (Ubuntu) Linux to print to old fashioned centronics (parallel) interfaces, this is the page for you.

I followed pretty much everything on that page but in my setup I was being caught out by the fact that CUPS appears to load the lp module, so I need to both stop the CUPS daemon and rmmod the lp module in order to free up the parallel port parport0 for vmware.
