I had to recreate my computer and have installed Ubuntu 13.04 as my main OS. As a printer I would like to install a Canon iSensys LBP 2900 printer. The printer-setup recognizes the device, but it won'T allow me to install the proper driver for this device - simply because there seems to be none available. Is that true?

I checked the various similar topics about this issue, but they are either outdated and the data-packages (drivers) are not available anymore or about older/ earlier Ubuntu versions.

Thank you for any advice or help or support.

Best wishes! Liam
