Sir.. I have recently upgraded to ubuntu 12.10. I recently bought Canon LBP2900 printer. Unfortunately I tried to install it ..there is no use. Please tell me how to install it and work with it.
Have you googled before coming here? How did you tried to install the printer? What ways you have tried? Google gives me two very good results on how to do it
First download the Linux_CAPT_PrinterDriver_V240_uk_EN.tar.gz
1) Create the following directories/file if they are missing:
2) Register the printer:
3) Register the printer with ccpd daemon:
4) Start ccpd daemon:
I have successfully tested this printer in Ubuntu 12.04 last month. Below are the steps for for easy understanding. This has been brought together with help of various answers given on this forum before, thankful to everyone.
Hope this helps.
I have found the install procedure for canon LBP2900 64 bit Arch and which works on :
Power On Printer after login
install packages downloaded from canon site
libglade2-0:i386 may not be required for linux mint 17.1 cinnamon but required for Ubuntu 14.04, 15.04 and LMDE 2
If you are seeing the message Ready to print, you are done! Else you may have to restart the system, and repeat all the steps.
Switch off the printer and switch on. Another printer LBP2900-2 may install disable it in printers app.
To ensure that printer is available after reboot edit /etc/rc.local and add
in that order as cups has to start before ccpd
You do not need to change the port no to 59787 as is indicated in some forums or even the device to /dev/lp0 in the ccpd.conf file both of these not required.
To use LSB scripts instead of changing rc.local
Add the below to /etc/init.d/ccpd for LSB headers for restart of ccpd at boot. So no entry required in rc.local. This may or may not work if it doesnt go back to rc.local entries.
Hope this solves the problem Anil Gadgil
