Can you indiate whether you have 32 or 64 bit ubuntu and which installation instructions you have followed?

comment printing Canon LBP2900 problems
See my answer. Also, for example, it does not use the --scripts flag on the alien command, while that is definetely neccessary. Also for earlier Ubuntu versions these instructions have not worked for me (see all my LBP 2900 questions here)

comment How to make a script in init.d run later
Why would I want to do this? As it is a service, should I not really use the ubuntu service options for this? Anyway, fstab is meant for mounting hard drives and profile for the different sessions. So that is not working.

When I now look the the ppa link you gave I see the problem, no canon driver packages are published for Oneiric!

comment Installing LBP 2900 printer -> libs folders wrong?
I didn't install an rpm, but an with alien to deb converted rpm. Why if the ppa is working is putted in this guide: help.ubuntu.com/community/CanonCaptDrv190 different instructions for 11.10? I will later today check the ppa again, and see what went wrong there for me.

1) canon.co.uk/Support/Consumer_Products/products/printers/Laser/… says nothing about whether the driver is working for the latest Ubuntu version 2) if you say driver for 32bit 64bit or source package, but not the rpm, than you imply there is a 64bit deb. 3) As I indicated now, that PPA is not working

Could you indicate: 1) Where Canon declares the driver to be working, and 2) Where Canon has published a 64-bit deb file of the CAPT driver. The problem is not that libraries are not linked well, but that the cpp protocol file is installed on the wrong location. The ppa you indicated in your search is not working for Oneiric.
