    Hi Thanks to pdc and Sivella for solving this problem. I too have this printer and was struggling for sometime dual booting. The solution given here did not seem to work for me at first . But that was becasue I closed the status monitor window saying the "printer is ready" and tried to print. With the window kept open, I was able to print. Thank you so much.
    I have ubuntu 12.04 32 bit

    hi chandra;

    I think the best guide is this

    http://doc.ubuntu-fr.org/tutoriel/in...lote_canon_lbp

    it is in french by a chap called Sivella; if you have access to google, you can use the google translate function to convert to whatever language you wish:

    you can see the 64bit has quite a few more steps: I think the 32bit is much easier; ............. up to you.................

    ........I will follow this thread so post back as you need advice, comments.......whatever

    Re: Canon LBP 2900B on Ubuntu 12.04

    you said before

    Do I need to change my OS from 64 bit to 32 bit system ?
    I think YES would be the correct answer............but it is your computer and your system

    come back to us when you have a 32bit partition: we can help you further; you can add a 32bit partition and leave the 64bit still installed

    I am having both Windows and Ubuntu in my system. How a 32 bit partition is added without leaving already installed 64 bit? thank you.
