I want to use Canon i-SENSYS LBP7200Cdn network printer with Ubuntu 12.10. I have read official documentation, this and this. I have not achieved any solution yet. I tried CAPT software versions 2.20 and 2.40. All the manuals are different and always involve CUPS and CCPD services, but nothing helped me.

Could you please say what you have done? Which steps? – BuZZ-dEE Feb 3 '13 at 1:38
@BuZZ-dEE I have followed the steps described in both posts. None of them worked for me. – logoff Feb 5 '13 at 10:48

Unzip the contents of the driver download, select the 32-bit or 64-bit folder, debian, and extract the .deb files to a directory. To install, open in console and run:

sudo dpkg -i ./*.deb

I did it, obviously, it doesn't work. Moreover, the deb's have unsatisfied dependencies that Ubuntu 12.10 doesn't have. – logoff Feb 3 '13 at 12:48
That's strange, it says dependency error on libraries that are installed. Running sudo dpkg -i --force-depends ./*.deb installs it anyway, see if that works. – NoBugs Feb 3 '13 at 16:23
The maintainer listed in the .deb is, you should probably report the bug to them. – NoBugs Feb 3 '13 at 16:25
If I use force option, it doesn't work, obviously, because the binaries failed to load library dependencies. Some packages had changed the names. – logoff Feb 4 '13 at 9:38
Try to install those manually, and if they're only renamed libraries (incorrect dependencies in .deb file), --force-depends should make it install anyway. – NoBugs Feb 4 '13 at 16:23
