    Canon LBP 2900B on Ubuntu 12.04

    Hi all,
    I am desperately trying to install my Canon LBP 2900B Laser Printer on Ubuntu 12.04... I've gone through https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CanonCaptDrv190 but had no success... Actually the file "/etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-cups-usblp.conf" is missing in my system... and the folder usb in "/dev"... Can anyone please give me step by step instruction to install my printer?? Please....

    Re: Canon LBP 2900B on Ubuntu 12.04

    so there are two stages:

    1) get the drivers installed

    2) tell your system about the new printer

    1) DRIVER INSTALL:

    how did you go on this? If you go to synaptic, you should get a picture like cndrvcups screenshot that I enclose

    ........that is when the drivers are installed; and you need the common package installed first.........

    2) TELLING YOUR SYSTEM

    I like this step; which comes after driver install; from the link you quote

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CanonCaptDrv190

    2a) Register the printer:

    sudo /usr/sbin/lpadmin -p LBP2900 -m CNCUPSLBP2900CAPTK.ppd -v ccp://localhost:59787 -E
    as by using

    ccp://localhost:59787 .. you don't need fido directories..

    then you need to

    2b) Register the printer with ccpd daemon:

    sudo /usr/sbin/ccpdadmin -p LBP2900 -o /dev/usb/lp0
    .........assuming you only have this one printer, so it gets called lp0...

    then you need to

    2c) Start ccpd daemon:

    sudo /etc/init.d/ccpd start
    then 2d) test the install

    captstatusui -P LBP2900
    ..that will open the Status Monitor window.

    If the message "Ready to print" is displayed --> all is OK.

    Try to print something.!!!!!!!!!

    ....if the printer kicks into life, great!

    My suggestions as to what to do are:

    1) first part the ubuntu wiki

    and then

    2) this great thread

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1982917

    particularly post #4 by Sivella, who is a great master on the LBP:

    ......if you subscribe to this thread:

    top right: thread tools; 3 down subscribe; and if the above works, we need to set up your system so it works each time!

    post #6

    Maestro Sivella tells all........

    he is french, and maintains the french canon support system; so he has a link at the end of post #6 which you can translate with google

    .....but if you just copy and paste the commands he lays out in post #6, I would hope things will go well for you

    I don't know: I use google for such things

    http://lmgtfy.com/?q=share+this+prin...work+via+samba

    Did you get the printer set up so it starts ccpd each time?

    the command

    sudo /etc/init.d/ccpd start
    should do it from a terminal.......if needed

    Re: Canon LBP 2900B on Ubuntu 12.04

    ...........well............there are NO debian packages for the 64bit system; you need to use alien to convert the rpm packages to deb packages

    ......as described here......

    http://www.debianadmin.com/install-r...nd-ubuntu.html

    eg to convert and install the common capt driver, the command would be

    sudo alien -i cndrvcups-common-2.40-1.x86_64.rpm
    and then the specific package

    sudo alien -i cndrvcups-capt-2.40-1.x86_64.rpm
    ........but this would only be after navigating yourself to the correct directory that these files are stored in ........

    .........so we can guide you through the 64bit install.........

    .........before that.......to install the drivers .......

    .this is from the Ubuntu HOW-TO

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CanonCaptDrv190

    For a new install please see the html guide in the 2.4 driver download:

    Download 32/64 Bit Linux CAPT Printer Driver v2.40 English.

    from here

    http://support-asia.canon-asia.com/c...900772424.html

    you will be downloading CAPT Printer Driver for Linux Version 2.40

    .....which comes down as Linux_CAPT_PrinterDriver_V240_uk_EN.tar.gz

    one needs the correct version of ........

    cndrvcups-common.deb

    cndrvcups-capt.deb

    .........You MUST INSTALL the COMMON DRIVER first ........

    Install from the v2.40 driver as you would any other package with Ubuntu Software Center.
    ..................post #3 above covers the later configuration......

    as the process is:

    1) install the drivers
    2) tell the system about your new printer

    @PDC,

    I recently purchased this printer. Thanks for the wonderful guide. I was able to print following the steps outlined by you.

    FYI, I have 32 bit ubuntu 12.04.
