Try this driver

Dear Sir,

I downloaded and installed the software but it is not working

August 20th, 2013, 02:20 PM
Follow this additional instruction and report back Should be the same for 11.10):


PS - Is there any special reason for you to keep using an outdated version?

how is it all coming along out there, pramodmpr?

are you using 32bit ubuntu?

tell us what

dpkg -l | grep Canon gives you if you COPY and paste this command into a terminal?

__________________________________________________ _______________

the LBP 2900 will use the Canon CAPT driver

the steps are:
1) install the CAPT driver
2) install the printer in CUPS eg sudo /usr/sbin/lpadmin -p LBP2900 -m CNCUPSLBP2900CAPTK.ppd -v ccp ://localhost:59787 -E
3) register the printer in the ccpd daemon eg sudo /usr/sbin/ccpdadmin -p LBP2900 -o /dev/usb/lp0

4)then start the ccpd daemon
sudo service ccpd start

5) then check its operation
sudo service ccpd status ........and you should get something like
Canon Printer Daemon for CUPS: ccpd: 8956 8954

one then tests if it will print

__________________________________________________ __

if that works, one needs to automate the detection of the printer so the ccpd daemon starts automatically

Sivella describes that here in section 3.3


one can use google translate to convert from french to your own, most favourite, language

please COPY and PASTE this command

dpkg -l | grep Canon

into a terminal and tell us what you get: it will tell if you have the correct drivers installed;


when you give us that answer, we can move forward .............


AND ...............tell us if you have a 32bit or 64bit system

Dear Sir

I copy and paste dpkg -l | grep Canon this command but it does not work. We use 64 Bit system.
Please give the correct steps one by one that is from software downloading and installation. Where to get the correct driver for my Canon LBP2900 B Printer.

I downloaded and installed the software but it is not working

...............can you tell us what software you downloaded please?

__________________________________________________ ________________________

I think you are going to find this all hard: have you any friends who use linux who can help you?

You need to:
1) install the CAPT drivers
2) install some libraries so it works on 64bit
.....and do what I detailed in a previous post


if you want to go ahead,

__________________________________________________ ______________________

please tell us what

/usr/sbin/lpinfo -v gives, when the printer is plugged in and turned on

__________________________________________________ ________________________

you need to install some things as you have 64bit

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install lib32asound2 lib32ffi6 lib32bz2-1.0 lib32gcc1 lib32stdc + 6 lib32z1 lib32ncurses5 lib32ncursesw5 libc6-i386

wget http://www.mirrorservice.org/sites/archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu//pool/universe/i/ia32-libs/ia32-libs_20090808ubuntu26_amd64.deb

sudo dpkg -i ia32-libs_20090808ubuntu26_amd64.deb

__________________________________________________ __________________________

1) the software you need is the Canon CAPT driver from here


it comes down as Linux_CAPT_PrinterDriver_V260_uk_EN.tar.gz

commands to install it are

cd Downloads

tar -zxvf Linux_CAPT_PrinterDriver_V260_uk_EN.tar.gz

cd Linux_CAPT_PrinterDriver_V260_uk_EN/64-bit_Driver/Debian

sudo dpkg -i cndrvcups-common_2.60-1_amd64.deb


sudo dpkg -i cndrvcups-capt_2.60-1_amd64.deb

__________________________________________________ _______________--

if you now copy and paste

sudo dpkg -l | grep Canon

and tell us what you get


if we stop there

if you read this


__________________________________________________ ___

we can continue when we know the drivers are installed

It's not working

.............I assume you mean the printer is not working;

that is because what I gave you in the last post was only the first bit of what was needed
