you need the CAPT driver from here CAPT Printer Driver for Linux | Canon and click to download and SAVE and you will get linux-capt-drv-v271-uken.tar.gz
open a terminal and copy the commands below line by line and PASTE into the terminal
cd Downloads tar -zxvf linux-capt-drv-v271-uken.tar.gz cd linux-capt-drv-v271-uken/64-bit_Driver/Debian sudo dpkg -i cndrvcups-common_3.21-1_amd64.deb sudo dpkg -i cndrvcups-capt_2.71-1_amd64.deb
sudo service cups restart
then to register the printer
sudo /usr/sbin/lpadmin -p LBP2900 -m CNCUPSLBP2900CAPTK.ppd -v ccp://localhost:59787 -E
then to register with ccpd daemon
sudo /usr/sbin/ccpdadmin -p LBP2900 -o /dev/usb/lp0
then restart ccpd with
sudo /etc/init.d/ccpd start
...... and it should print
You must use the final command each time you turn the computer on; unless you set up the command to start automatically ...........
and this all assumes you have only ONE usb printer so it gets called lp0
