There's clearly described what you have to do.
Ensure that the CUPS daemon is running and added to the /etc/rc.conf
# /etc/rc.d/cups start
DAEMONS=(... cups crond ...)
Now plug in the USB printer and turn it on. The printer will whirl,
pause, then whirl once more as the firmware is uploaded. Now remove the
# rmmod usblp
Note: The usblp module must be removed after the firmware is loaded to
the printer, and before any printing job is submitted.
As I understand it there is no way to automatize this.
