I Installed canon LBP2900 printer on Ubuntu 12.04, 32 bit machine, 14.04 also does not work. I used following documents as reference while installing.

The computer detects printer when it is turned on But when print command is issued, it piles up in print queue but, it does not print. What to do? Please help. Following are some details that might help

When sudo service ccpd status command is issued it gives following output /usr/sbin/ccpd: 3014 3013

When running sudo ccpadmin, following output is displayed

Usage: 
  ccpdadmin [-p Printer-name -o Printer-dev-path]
  ccpdadmin [-x Remove-Printer-name]

 CUPS_ConfigPath = /etc/cups/
 LOG Path        = None
 UI Port         = 59787

 Entry Num : Spoole   : Backend  : FIFO path       : Device Path  : Status 
 -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [0]    : LBP2900  : ccp      : /var/ccpd/fifo0 : /dev/usb/lp0 : 

The file /etc/cups/printers.conf contains following
