Successfully installed CANON CAPT Drivers on the updated Ubuntu LTS. Printer not printing even after giving print command several times. Even "Print Test Page" failed. Please help.

  • Look at the CUPS interface by browsing to http://localhost:631. Click on the Administration tab and add your printer there.

If your pc username and password do not work try the following

add your username to lpadmin group

sudo usermod -aG lpadmin username

Then restart CUPs

sudo /etc/init.d/cups restart
  • Thanks for the answer - it worked for me. It's strange how Ubuntu 22.04 got this bug. Please consider formatting username as a template: <username> Nov 15, 2022 at 3:24
