Canon LBP7210Cdn, CAPT driver won't autostart

Hi,

I am running a Canon i-SENSYS LBP7210Cdn as a network printer.
I have succesfully installed annd configured the Canon drivers, so I am able to print, but with one hick-up.
Prior to printing I need to restart the CCPD system every time I boot the computer. (sudo service ccpd restart) After that, behaviour is normal.

I have tried a couple of solutions I found on the web:

1) Running the command

Code: Select all

sudo update-rc.d ccpd defaults
2) Adding the lines

Code: Select all

sudo /etc/init.d/ccpd stop
sudo /etc/init.d/ccpd start
to /etc/rc.local.

(askubuntu.com/questions/246515/how-to-set-ccpd-daemon-to-start-automatically-at-startup)

Neither of these solutions work. When I use them, the communication with the printer becomes broken, and running "sudo service ccpd restart" from the terminal doesn't get communication back in order.
According to Canon's documentation, a properly functioning driver should return two numbers in response to the command "sudo service ccpd status". I.e.:

Code: Select all

$ sudo service ccpd status
/usr/sbin/ccpd: 2412 2411 
But after applying one of the two solutions above, "sudo service ccpd status" only returns a single number:

Code: Select all

$ sudo service ccpd status
/usr/sbin/ccpd: 1906 
Any advice as to how I can solve this? I would like non-technical users to be able to print without making a stop at the terminal.
I am running LM17 Cinnamon.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the suggestion. But this tip is for a USB-connected printer. My printer is on a LAN connection, so the kernel won't recognize it being plugged in and out.
