    Why not write instructions for human beings, after all you’re talking about Ubuntu and Mint:
    1. Download the .tar.gz
    2. Right-click, choose “Extract here”
    3. Go to the folder where files have been extracted and install by double clicking first “..common” and then “..capt” file
    4. Restart

    … not sure if it’s possible to rewrite the rest commands, as I don’t understand their meanings but you get the idea.

      • zinovsky
        June 7, 2009

    Can’t seem to get this working. Everything installs OK but I get the following message from the Step 10—

    Could not transfer data to the printer because of the large amount of data, or a data transfer error occurred.
    Click Resume to resume printing from the top of the page which was not printed completely.

    I am trying to install a LBP 3100 on Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid. The file I am trying to print is a one page text document.

    hello, I’m currently using fedora 11 and I’ve successfully printed on my printer. unfortunately, after restart, I cannot seen to print any file anymore. :(

    furthermore, when i type:
    captstatusui -P LPB2900
    I get this:
    *** captstatusui Socket Error ***

    I’ve tried restarting ccpd and cups, but the problem still persists.

    PS can I find a link to the 1.3 driver?
    http://downloads.unixmen.com/drivers/CANONLBP2900/CAPTDRV130.tar.gz is dead.
    I’ll try my luck there since i used 1.6 now. thanks!

    The driver 1.6 is good for fedora 11,no need to use 1.3

      Zinovsky, Thanks heaps for your work on Canon printers. I have an LBP7200Cdn printer which is a network printer. I’ve carefully followed your tutorial for the LBP2900 but can not get the printer to work on Lenny. I had to replace your USB device with "socket://192.168.87.12:9100" as this is what the printer’s IP is, and it listens on port 9100. It seems to be a communications problem. The debian system can communicate with the printer on port 80 OK (see the toner left, etc, etc). Mostly I have tried to do all of the configuration through CUPS. Any ideas on getting the Canon drivers working in this situation? Thanks again.

    Hello Zinovsky

    First of all, thank you for providing such beautifully clear instructions. I’ve had a Canon LBP5000 for a while now and had it running nicely from Hardy through to Intrepid & Jaunty .04 and I wish I’d seen this guide when going through the hoops.

    I’m now running the (final?) beta of Karmic and I think there have been changes to cups. It seems that cups is not recognising the old libcupsys2 (I think there was a dummy to handle this previously?). I think they’ve totally dropped the ‘sys’ suffix but the Canon driver still needs it.

    Do you have any ideas for this? Here’s what happens when I try to install the cndrvcups common deb package:

    [quote]sudo dpkg -i cndrvcups-common_1.6*.deb
    Selecting previously deselected package cndrvcups-common.
    (Reading database … 154162 files and directories currently installed.)
    Unpacking cndrvcups-common (from cndrvcups-common_1.60-1_i386.deb) …
    dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of cndrvcups-common:
    cndrvcups-common depends on libcupsys2 (>= 1.1.23); however:

    Thank you for your post, the truth i still diden`t start yet to test canon LBPXXXX in Karmic, i think is the time because just few days and karmic final will be released, i will install the beta version tomorow in my laptop ( I have karmic now but installed on Virtualbox) and will try to install my LBP2900 on it.From y think is problem of dependencies, try this command :
    [quote]sudo apt-get install build-essential[/quote]
    i will test and will keep you informed.

    Thank you for all of your efforts.

    I’ve tried installing your new drivers under 9.10 and the installation problem proceeds without a hitch!

    However I,ve tried both the terminal based printer install that you suggest and the automatic process and both result in a printer which seems perfect in every respect, except it does not print. I get the following lines in the message log.

    Do you have any advice please

    Hi,

    Following on from my previous, I have a nasty feeling I know what the problem is; while the Canon drivers work perfectly with the 5200 (same as 5100), the USB product ID (04A9:266E) is most likely different. Will cppd cope with this please?

    Again many thanks for undertaking a difficult but much needed task.

    captstatusui is giving the Printer error as

    verified the configuration(cupsd.conf and ccpd.conf) and it looks ok.
    Is there any ways of debugging CCPD daemon.

      I tried everything that is listed in the steps to make my printer work in karmic, no use so far. The problem is still there or rectified?

      printer: canon lbp2900b
      Os: ubundu 9.10
      driver: CAPTDRV160-unixmen.tar.gz

      When I do captstatusui -P LBP2900 .. nothing is getting displayed in the resulting GUI.

      all the print test pages gets disappeared without printing from the print queue. Where am I missing out?

    Now we have some windows system too and wants to get print from windows to linux connected canon CAPT printer.

    is there any way to do this?

    Thanks a lot zinovsky! It worked! I made a mistake earlier. didn’t check for the dependency, portreserve was not installed, but it didn’t throw up any dependency problem. it started to work after that was rectified, but it was short lived.I noticed a second printer, so i deleted the second printer and rebooted the system. It didn’t work after that. I left it for few days and thought I would work again on it with a fresh mind. Right after booting today, I tried to print, and it printed without any problem! Cant really figure out what was the reason behind it! Thanks for the driver and for the help in setting it up.

    Hi Everybody I am new to Ubuntu (to Linux in fact…) and of course my LBP2900 didn’t work in the first place…

    …after spending hours trying and reading posts I finally found an solution. It’s derived from a post in the german ubuntu Forum “Installing the LBP5000″. It works pretty well and is very logical to me. I found out that the most important thing is to switch the printer (LBP 2900) off during the installation and to use the CAPT Driver Version 2.0!

    Since I was so happy to get the LBP2900 working that I posted my solution on my Blog. You will find a link to the driver aswell.

    My Blog: http://www.sunscreen.blog.com

    I hope it works for You! I’d be happy for Feedback.[size=medium][/size][color=black][/color]

    great! its work perfect on Lucid Lynx (Canon LBP2900, drivers 2.0). Thank You :)

    PS. >> after installation drivers by GUI: “(Newbies you can go directly to the folder and install the driver by clicking on the files in this order first common and then install capt then continue the installation from Step 8)”
    i continued from step 6 (restart cups)
    PPS. printers window: menu “help”=>”solving problem”

    lucid에서 이 튜토리얼 보고 성공 했네요.

    지금까지 리눅스 사용하면서 처음으로 프린터연결 성공해보네요 :)

    기념으로 글 남깁니다.

    i am using ubuntu 10.4. i have canon lbp-1210. i did as u said above. i even did apt-get build-essentials which is mentioned in above replies. further while trying to install for second time in step 10, after this “sudo update-rc.d ccpd defaults 20″, i added “# /etc/init.d/ccpd start” in rc.local (before exit 0). also tried restarting.

    but still i am unable to get a print. what further information i must provide to u for help?

    By far, the easiest way to install the LBP printers on both amd64 (btw, your method does not cover for the 64-bit users) and i386 is to use a script I wrote which makes all the install process a one line “nobrainer”.

    The script’s details are [url=http://radu.cotescu.com/2010/03/20/how-to-install-canon-lbp-printers-in-ubuntu/]here[/url].

    Hi,

    Thanks a lot for this article.
    I am struggling with my printer for 1 year.
    Because of this, we could not move to linux in my office.

    I followed the article.
    It printed only one page.
    after that no response.

    How to troubleshoot it?
    any log file?

    sudo /usr/sbin/ccpdadmin -p LBP2900 -o /dev/usb/lp0

    CUPS_ConfigPath = /etc/cups/
    LOG Path = None
    UI Port = 59787

    Entry Num : Spooler : Backend : FIFO path : Device Path : Status
    —————————————————————————-
    [0] : LBP2900 : ccp : /var/ccpd/fifo0 : /dev/usb/lp0 : Modified

    captstatusui -P LBP2900

    shows empty window.

    Please help me.

    Thanks a lot.

    Following the instructions, plus doing
    chmod a+rw /dev/usb/lp0
    and restarting ccpd instead of just starting, i.e.
    sudo /etc/init.d/ccpd restart
    Have Fun

    Somehow using the script from Method 1 changed the theme of my Ubuntu 10.04. No problem changing it back via System -> Preferences -> Appearance though. Only too bad the printer still doesn’t work. Although this probably has to do with it being installed before the installation with the script mentioned above and suddenly stopped working (also before script installation). I can see the printer as LBP3000 (correct model) in System -> Administration -> Printing, but it just won’t print. It sais “Processing” in “Document Print Status” for a while and then it disappears and nothing happens.

    I’ve tried removing the CUPS-files and reinstalling, but without progress.

    I’d appreciate suggestions on how to solve this problem, or on how to do a proper un/re-installation.

        Very sorry to say that it didn’t work for me.
        I will try to provide some information on my case maybe it would prove useful.
        My printer is Canon LBP-1120The result is the same as before the update. As others that commented here, the driver is installed without error message and the printer appears in the list. But it just says idle.
        What should I say? First, in the readme file it is said to enter a command like “sudo ./canonLBP_install.sh LBP5050“. But in fact that gives me an error and I had to replace it with like “sudo ./canonLBP_install.sh LBP-1120“ – I mean I added that line, I don’t know if that means something or not.
        Another thing: in the terminal, after the installation it is said:
        “Go to System – Administration – Printing and do the following:
         1. disable LBP-1120-2 but do not delete it since Ubuntu will recreate it automatically;
         2. set LBP-1120 as your default printer;
         3. reboot your machine and print a test page.”
        No such name (LBP-1120-2) appears in my list that I should disable, just the simple “LBP-1120“
        (That’s what I see: http://www.zimagez.com/full/edebf61ef9c86e41329a618ec91320d43442f16ac110fcf76924c0fb25bf0a9debb939ba49dabcb7bdb8d91c6837536ac09a32c808864395.php)
        In the printer properties appears “Canon LBP1120 CAPT ver.1.5“. If 1.5 stands for the driver that would be odd, as the version of the driver is 2.40-1.

    Now that Debian has gone over to dependency based boot sequencing, a new header is needed in the ccpd script in /etc/init.d:

     ### BEGIN INIT INFO
    # Provides:          ccpd
    # Required-Start:    $remote_fs $syslog $cups
    # Required-Stop:     $remote_fs $syslog
    # Default-Start:     2 3 4 5
    # Default-Stop:      0 1 6
    # Short-Description: Start ccpd at boot time after CUPS starts
    # Description:       Enable the Canon Printer Daemon for CUPS
    ### END INIT INFO

    This header goes at the top of the ccpd script.  ccpd must start after CUPS starts, hence the $cups reference above.  $cups must be defined in /etc/insserv.conf or as a separate file in /etc/insserv.conf.d.  It is defined as a line like this:

    # Define $cups to be the CUPS daemon  (cupsd)
    # Other printer daemons (at least, the Canon one) must start after CUPS is running.

    $cups              cups

    where “cups” is the name of the script in /etc/init.d that starts cupsd.  Once this is done, run the command:

    insserv ccpd

    You should then see two instances of ccpd when you run the command:

    ps -ef | grep ccpd

    for Linuxmint,is based on Ubuntu so i mentioned LinxMint to show to the users of this distribution that this tutorial also is For Mint.
