I installed Canon LBP2900B 's driver from canon's support page in Ubuntu 12.10. In printers section it is showing my printer as LBP2900 (not as LBP2900B). I can open its properties, can send a command for printing. What's wrong, however, is that in the printing process, it is shown as processing. Suffice it to say that my printer is not working.

I've searched for you this driver and I found it in this page: http://www.canon.co.uk/Support/Consumer_Products/products/printers/Laser/i-SENSYS_LBP2900B.aspx?DLtcmuri=tcm:14-846492&page=1&type=download

However, I don't know where do you live, so if you click here http://www.canon.co.uk/Support/Consumer_Products/products/printers/Laser/i-SENSYS_LBP2900B.aspx?type=download&page=1 you can choose your own language for this driver! Unfortunately I have not tried to search the guide for install the printer. If you have any problems write here, even if I'm a beginner of Ubuntu I'm trying to help all of you!

if you will click on the second link, you have to click on "Software (drivers and applications)" situated near "Please select a download type" –  Dimix Nov 23 '12 at 19:59
