View Full Version : [ubuntu] canon lbp3000 printer installation

November 25th, 2008, 05:54 AM
I am in the process of transferring from XP to Ubuntu (8.10). I wish to install drivers for a Canon LBP3000 printer. I have downloaded the driver tarball from www.canon.com.au website and unpacked it.

Using the Gdebi installer uncovered some dependency requirement. One of these is libglib1.2 and the installed libglib1.2ldbl wont work. I tried a soft point:
sudo ln -s ./libglib1.2ldbl ./libglib1.2
but to no effect.

Assistance required, please.

try installing libglib1.2-dev package.

sudo apt-get install libglib1.2-dev

Thanks Partyboi2, but no go. Still get 'Dependency is not satisfiable: libglib1.2'
