you need Canon's CAPT driver from here http://support-asia.canon-asia.com/cont ... 59601.html and was updated May 2017

if you click to SAVE the file, it should end up in your Downloads folder; it should be linux-capt-drv-v271-uken.tar.gz then you need to open a terminal; and copy the commands that are below; and paste them into a terminal;

to open a terminal; (hold the control and alt and t buttons down ..)

To paste the commands below into a terminal; right-click at the flashing text prompt in the terminal; and select PASTE from the menu that appears .

.. so copy each command below; one line at a time; and paste into the terminal and hit the ENTER key ..

Code: Select all

cd Downloads

Code: Select all

tar -zxvf linux-capt-drv-v271-uken.tar.gz

Code: Select all

cd linux-capt-drv-v271-uken/64-bit_Driver/Debian
that gets us into the directory where the 2 needed files are so

Code: Select all

sudo dpkg -i cndrvcups-common_3.21-1_amd64.deb

Code: Select all

sudo dpkg -i cndrvcups-capt_2.71-1_amd64.deb

Code: Select all

sudo service cups restart
so drivers installed, next is Register the printer (PPD) with the print spooler.

Code: Select all

sudo /usr/sbin/lpadmin -p LBP2900 -P /usr/share/cups/model/CNCUPSLBP2900CAPTK.ppd -v ccp://localhost:59787 -E
next is Register the printer in the ccpd daemon setup file.

Code: Select all

sudo /usr/sbin/ccpdadmin -p LBP2900 -o /dev/usb/lp0
.......... that assumes you have 1) a usb connection and 2) this LBP is the only printer connected ..... TELL US if that is wrong ......

next is start ccpd daemon

Code: Select all

sudo /etc/init.d/ccpd start
and you should be able to print .......

I installed following the instructions. A printjob is send to the printer and gets cancelled. Has it something to do with the fact I also have a second Netwerkprinter, a HP Envy 5540?

problem solved after I followed the last steps as indicated on viewtopic.php?f=51&t=227818&p=1208926&h ... 0#p1208926

delighted to hear you got your LBP2900 ?? working .......

you say
problem solved after I followed the last steps as indicated on
....... which particular instructions helped you please?

(It is quite an extraordinary thread you found help in: it started with someone needing Canon's UFR driver; then someone chipped in with (very good) advice on Canon's CAPT driver; but nothing to do with the UFR driver ....... then a few more folks piled in talking about their Pixma printers which need the separate ...... Pixma ...... drivers ........ nothing to do with the UFR ........ or the CAPT drivers ..........)
