I have a small Parallel port -> DMX (A stage lighting protocol) converter. I would like to write software for it under linux. I need to be able to read and write to the || port pins... I think the paper out pin for example. I guess if I understand correctly root could do this with a simple write to that io address... But I want to be able to run it as an ordinary user... How would I go about it?
