View Full Version : [ubuntu] [SOLVED] Canon Printer install on 32bit Intrepid

When using Fiesty I was able to get my Canon LBP2900 running using these outstanding instructions:

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/HardwareSupportComponentsPrinters/CanonPrinters/Canon_LBP_2900

Now, after upgrading to Intrepid I find that my printer no longer works. I tried going through this procedure again (with the exception of using the debs available from Canon now and not having to convert the rpms) but to no avail.

I can not find a guide for setting up Canon laser printers in Intrepid, is there one? Is there a plan to update the above referenced guide to include whatever changes Intrepid made under the hood?

See if the thread here (http://ph.ubuntuforums.com/showthread.php?t=967483) is of any help.

phidia,

I do appreciate the pointer, obviously my searching had not been adequate.

Unfortunately this didn't work for me, tried it both with the stock ccpd script and the changed one from the original HardwareSupportComponentPrinters thread.

Any other ideas would be appreciated!

EDIT: OK, so I posted the above after waiting about 40 minutes to print a test page. I actually forgot the test page print job was still pending. After about 1 hour of starting the job the test page printed out. So I guess the question would not be how to get the printer to work but how to get it to work in a timely fashion?

Wow, after a reboot (again) things are working normally.

Hello List.

I have the last Ubuntu (8.3).
Need a program to convert my music documents (*.ogg format) into mp3 format.
The thing is: I want to pass some music from my PC to the MP3 player, and there is no way to pass in the later format.
I've heard about some programs that convert some "codecs" for the sake of passing from the *.ogg format into others.

Thank you
