Maybe my installation process is not right. I think, I should install Canon LBP 3300 printer driver for Linux. I have the file for Linux, but I don't know that how to install it. Please help me!

Note that: The printer is fine. It works properly in Windows after installing driver.

Edited post: I can't find the driver for LBP 3300. Here the photo

  • Yeah, I've seen this. But I can't find my Canon LBP 3300 printer driver in the list. Dec 25, 2019 at 13:13
  • what happens when you pick the one which says recommended for the lbp 33xx ? often its the same drivers even though they are labelled differently for each permutation of the model names Dec 25, 2019 at 13:16
  • Well, after your comment, I've selected LBP 3360 and tried to print a test page. But it is saying, 1 job processing (for 5minutes+). Still now it is saying that. Dec 25, 2019 at 13:21

Download and install the driver from here:


To Install:

make sure you have the build essentials package installed.

sudo apt-get install build-essential

Change to the directory of the downloaded driver:

tar xvzf PACKAGENAME.tar.gz

cd to the extracted folder and then :

make && sudo make install

  • Can you clarify this for me: "Change to the directory of the downloaded driver: tar xvzf PACKAGENAME.tar.gz" Should I cd to the downloaded folder & write this command(I know, I should change PACKAGENAME)? Dec 25, 2019 at 13:38
  • yes. In your case it would be something like tar xvzf linux-capt-drv-v271-uken.tar.gz

  • After extraction, I've write these commands: "make && sudo make install". But it is saying, "make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop." (I've write these commands in the extracted folder) Dec 25, 2019 at 13:48
  • You have some dependencies missing most probably run ./configure first and then the rest of commands. It will tell you what dependencies are missing.

  • "bash: ./configure: No such file or directory" In linux-capt-drv-v271-uken folder, there are 3 sub folders(32-bit_Driver, 64-bit_Driver, Doc, Src). In the 64-bit_Driver folder, there are more 2 subfolders(Debian, RPM). In the Debian folder, there are 2 files(cndrvcups-common_3.21-1_amd64.deb, cndrvcups-capt_2.71-1_amd64). Dec 25, 2019 at 13:55
