    Re: Trouble installing Canon LBP 3100 Printer

    @Sivella
    All my efforts to install the printer LBP3100B on Ubuntu 12.10 64-bit failed! may you review the way I done?
    I got it two ways.
    FIRST way: that is describe here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...87&postcount=5 -> #5 -> (failed)
    SECOND way: the way you respond to #11 in this post that I have done the following: (red lines are the errors that occurred)

    1) Download and install:

    This package wasn't available for 12.10: http://packages.ubuntu.com/quantal/gs-esp -> ERROR

    So I installesd lucid package on quantal!

    2) Download and install this 2 packages:
    3) Restart cups:
    Code:
    sudo service cups restart
    4) Edit this file : /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-cups-usblp.conf and Comment (#) the line : blacklist usblp
    There wasn't this file on /etc direction. So I created it an add these lines whithin:
    Code:
    # cups talks to the raw USB devices, so we need to blacklist usblp to avoid
    # grabbing them
    #blacklist usblp
    5) Create the following directories/file if they are missing:
    Code:
     sudo mkdir /var/ccpd
    sudo mkfifo /var/ccpd/fifo0
    sudo mkdir /var/captmon
    6) have to install "by hand" the 11.10 (onieric) ia32-libs package. Install the dependences needed -> quantal 12.10
    Code:
    libc6-i386
    lib32ncursesw5
    lib32asound2
    lib32ncurses5
    lib32z1
    lib32stdc++6
    lib32gcc1
    lib32bz2-1.0
    lib32ffi6
    7) Download and install http://packages.ubuntu.com/quantal/ia32-libs (for 12.10: quantal)

    8) Run the below command
    Code:
    echo "ia32-libs hold" | sudo dpkg --set-selections
    9) Register the printer:
    Code:
    sudo /usr/sbin/lpadmin -p LBP3100B -m CNCUPSLBP3150CAPTK.ppd -v ccp:/var/ccpd/fifo0 -E
    3150? -> according this page: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CanonCaptDrv190

    10) Register the printer with ccpd daemon:
    Code:
    sudo /usr/sbin/ccpdadmin -p LBP3100B -o /dev/usb/lp0
    During Running this command I got a gnome-keyring error. I solved it following http://askubuntu.com/questions/12784...ring-pkcs11-so

    11) Start ccpd daemon:
    Code:
    sudo /etc/init.d/ccpd start
    12) Test install:
    Code:
    captstatusui -P LBP6300

    @maxim40
    Could you run your LBP printer on your 64-bit machine?

    Re: Trouble installing Canon LBP 3100 Printer

    Hi all,

    I also tried to install the drivers on my Linux Minut 12.04 64-bit. I have the LBP7200Cdn printer connected using USB.

    What I did:
    - Installed the gs-esp transitional package
    - Downgraded ia32libs
    - Tried the 2.20 drivers from the earlier mentioned ppa and tried the 2.40 and 2.50 drivers using alien (sudo alien *.deb --scripts).

    To install those drivers, I putted them into the 'deb' subdirectory and ran the following script:
    Code:
    sudo /usr/sbin/ccpdadmin -x LBP7200C
    sudo /etc/init.d/ccpd stop
    sudo service cups stop
    sudo rm /etc/cups/printers.conf
    sudo apt-get --purge remove cndrv*
    sudo dpkg -i deb/cndrvcups-common*.deb
    sudo dpkg -i deb/cndrvcups-capt*.deb
    sudo service cups restart
    sleep 5
    sudo /usr/sbin/lpadmin -p LBP7200C -m CNCUPSLBP7200CCAPTK.ppd -v ccp://localhost:59787 -E
    sudo /usr/sbin/ccpdadmin -p LBP7200C -o /dev/usb/lp0 
    sleep 5
    sudo /etc/init.d/ccpd start
    sleep 5
    sudo /etc/init.d/ccpd status
    I got to the point where the Status Monitor shows info about the printer. However, if I try to print, the Status Monitor sais 'Communication Error'.

    Do you guys have an idea what I can do?

    hi ernstblaauw; .........everyone would like to see your system working;

    sadly, these LBP capt drivers seem to work on 32bit systems; and sometimes it might be worth creating a small partition of a 32bit system: eg Mint is now at Mint 14; and the capt drivers seem fine that way...

    Re: Trouble installing Canon LBP 3100 Printer

    Yes, I know it is difficult at the moment. However, I think there should be a solution to this as a 64-bit rpm package exists and thus I conclude it should be possible on 64-bit Ubuntu and derivatives. Today, I tried to compile the source by hand (v2.50) but still no luck.

    At the moment, I use my Windows 7 partition to print .

    For a LBP3000, the simplest way is to download drivers from the PPA mickael-gruz.
    The 64bits Maverick version works well with 12.04.

    1) Download and install transitional package "gs-esp" :2) Download and install from the PPA depot the 2 packages :3) Restart cups :4) Modify the file /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-cups-usblp.conf as indicated in my post #9

    5) See my post #5 in : http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1983091
    Starting at point#1 and of course change LBP6300 with LBP3000
    If you succeed to print, see my post#6 in this thread for auot-ccpd management.
    Good luck
    Hiya Sivella I was wondering if you could help me. I have just freshly installed Ubuntu 12.10 64 bit and am trying to install my Canon LBP 2900i laser printer. I followed your instructions and installed the gs-esp file, but the links in the 2nd instructions have gone down. I was wondering if the installation process has changed?

    Re: Trouble installing Canon LBP 3100 Printer

    I just installed version 2.56 (http://support-au.canon.com.au/conte...100459602.html), which contains a 64-bit deb archive! The guy here (http://askubuntu.com/questions/21693.../304538#304538) succeeded in printing on his LBP7200Cdn, but on my 64-bit Ubuntu Mint 13, I'm not so lucky.

    Does anyone here succeed in printing on 64-bit?

    Re: Trouble installing Canon LBP 3100 Printer

    the best guide is I think this

    http://doc.ubuntu-fr.org/tutoriel/in...lote_canon_lbp (translate with google into your favourite language: but BEWARE; google translate adds mysterious spaces in syntax such as ls / usr / share / cups / model / | grep CNCUPS so you need to remove spaces

    you can see Sivella talks about adding bits for a 64bit system.......before installing the drivers

    can we check:

    1) you installed the common driver (cndrvcups-common_2.56-1_amd64.deb) first; and then the specific (cndrvcups-capt_2.56-1_amd64.deb) afterwards

    2) you cited the CNCUPSLBP3150CAPTK.ppd .............ie
    sudo /usr/sbin/lpadmin -p LBP3100 -m CNCUPSLBP3150CAPTK.ppd -v ccp://localhost:59787 -E
    3) you used ccp://localhost:59787 .................... the Canon guides suggest ccp://localhost:59687

    what does

    sudo dpkg -l | grep Canon
    give you?

    what does

    sudo service ccpd status
    what does

    captstatusui -P LBP3100
    There seem to be 4 stages for the LBP install

    1) if 64bit, install specific needed 64bit packages
    2) install CAPT drivers
    3) Register the printer with CUPS (sudo /usr/sbin/lpadmin -p LBP3100 -m CNCUPSLBP3050CAPTK.ppd -v ccp://localhost:59787 -E)
    4) Register the printer in the CCPD daemon (sudo /usr/sbin/ccpdadmin-p LBP3100 -o /dev/usb/lp0 )

    then start the ccpd daemon
    sudo service ccpd start
    ........check its status
    sudo service ccpd status
    and if two numbers, should all be good to go
