This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • These Lasershot printers need the CAPT driver; it requires 3 steps instead of 2; there are details that seem important; I would ask those who say it has already been answered; to allow me to spell out a clear pathway for this person; the top answer is about inkjet: different to lasershot; the CAPT driver lacks the install script of the inkjet series; 1) so the driver install needs detailing to help 2) Register the printer (PPD) with the print spooler. that needs spelling out and 3) Register the printer in the ccpd daemon setup file. 4) Start ccpd daemon. please lift the current block to help – pdc Aug 11 at 17:41
  • with google, I have found a link to an earlier case where the how-to is spelt out in detail; the correct ppd for the 3300 is CNCUPSLBP3300CAPTK.ppd – pdc Aug 11 at 17:44
  • and I forgot to include the link askubuntu.com/questions/983343/… here it is so one changes the references that are 2900 in that; to 3300 – pdc Aug 13 at 4:12
