On my ubuntu laptop it was also necessary to enable and unmute the pc
speaker in the volum control. On a gnome system it was done with:

$ gnome-volume-control

and then

edit-preferences  and check the "PC Speaker"

It appeared then on the playback menu, where I had to unmute it.

Of course on my fedora box with gnome there is no option for "pc
speak" in gnome-volume-control, but it just works there, after
enabling the kernel module.

Conclusion: printread beeps in ubuntu feisty and fedora 7.

I tried this and this time I get an error like this,
SpotRead: Error - Configuring USB port 'usb:/bus0/dev18 (GretagMacbeth
i1 Pro)' to 1 failed with -71 (Permission problem ?)
I run the program as sudo.
But anyway it's fast to replug the device.
