Another Canon printer problem with Ubuntu. I have installed my Canon LBP6000 in Ubuntu using several tutorials of different web sites. Here is the property page of my printer.

enter image description here

When I print any document it says it is printing and after some seconds it says printing is completed. But it doesn't print anything at all. I think something is wrong with it, but don't know what. I have been trying to manage it during 3 months but without any success. Could anybody help me to configure my printer so that I could use it in Ubuntu please? If any further information needed I can provide it without any problem.

Thank you.

Try running the following commands after turning on the machine,

sudo pkill -9 -x ccpd
sudo pkill -9 -x captmoncnabc
sudo /etc/init.d/ccpd start
/etc/init.d/ccpd status

If it still does not print, try turning off and on the printer once.
