@agmb The colon is causing this. Use double-quotes around the path.

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.

comment Installing LBP 2900 printer -> libs folders wrong?
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.

comment Installing LBP 2900 printer -> libs folders wrong?
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

comment Installing LBP 2900 printer -> libs folders wrong?
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.

@fossfreedom I did the modprobe to get that module to load, that part is working. The problem is really with the wrong installation directories I think...

If it turn out that Ubuntu is to heavy / sluggish / slow for your pc you can try a light weight version called xubuntu (xubuntu.com)

What a bad idea to suggest 10.10. This is a release that will not get any security updates anymore from April on.

comment Buying a videocard: do AMD cards support hardware acceleration on Ubuntu?
Although a valuable answer, it does not really give the answer to my specific question; is Hardware Acceleration for H264 video supported with AMD/ATI video cards (specifically the one mentioned). Does e.g. the catalyst driver provide such functionality?
