Problem printing to Brother DCP-J315W through USB port

cannot open '/dev/lp0'

The printer is connected by USB. It is good in /etc/printcap but I get the above status from lpq -a and of course no paper is used in this exercise, so very green!
Seriously - I have installed the printer with the visual interface, apt-get, dpkg and despair of getting the printer going. Is it perhaps a function of the USB connection? Help!
