Re: How to Install Canon Printer lbp2900 in Ubuntu ?

Before to begin we have to see if all the dependencies are installed if not we have to install them, check the one below if already are installed :

1/6: printer-testpages

2/6: dynamic
3/6: libopenslp1
4/6: cups-common
5/6: portreserve
6/6: cups

If all is installed then we begin with the installation :
  1. Download the driver from here
  2. change to root :
    su - (root)
  3. change to the folder where you download the driver and extract it, in my case :


    cd /home/zinovsky/Desktop
    tar -xvf Driver.tar.gz change Driver with the name and version of your driver in my case i downloaded CAPTDRV180.tar.gz

    output :
    [root@localhost Desktop]# tar xvf CAPTDRV180.tar.gz
    CANON_UK/
    CANON_UK/Src/
    CANON_UK/Driver/
    CANON_UK/Doc/
    CANON_UK/Src/cndrvcups-capt-1.80-1.tar.gz
    CANON_UK/Src/cndrvcups-common-1.80-1.tar.gz
    CANON_UK/Driver/RPM/
    CANON_UK/Driver/Debian/
    CANON_UK/Driver/RPM/cndrvcups-common-1.80-1.i386.rpm
    CANON_UK/Driver/RPM/cndrvcups-capt-1.80-1.i386.rpm
    CANON_UK/Driver/Debian/cndrvcups-common_1.80-1_i386.deb
    CANON_UK/Driver/Debian/cndrvcups-capt_1.80-1_i386.deb
    CANON_UK/Doc/README-capt-1.8xE.txt
    CANON_UK/Doc/LICENSE-captdrv-1.80E.txt
    CANON_UK/Doc/README-capt-1.8xE.pdf
    CANON_UK/Doc/guide-capt-1.8xE.tar.gz

    so now if we want to install in debian ( ubuntu for exmple) we have to choose :

    CANON_UK/Driver/Debian/cndrvcups-common_1.80-1_i386.deb
    CANON_UK/Driver/Debian/cndrvcups-capt_1.80-1_i386.deb

    if We have to install the driver on red-hat based distribution like in my case will choose

    CANON_UK/Driver/RPM/cndrvcups-common-1.80-1.i386.rpm
    CANON_UK/Driver/RPM/cndrvcups-capt-1.80-1.i386.rpm

    like this :
    [root@localhost Desktop]# cd CANON_UK/
    [root@localhost CANON_UK]# ls
    Doc/ Driver/ Src/
    [root@localhost CANON_UK]# cd Driver/
    [root@localhost Driver]# ls
    Debian/ RPM/

    in my case i will install in red-hat based distribution so is a RPM package ( fedora,Mandriva, Linpus )
    [root@localhost Driver]# cd RPM/
    [root@localhost RPM]# rpm -ivh cndrvcups-common-1.80-1.i386.rpm
    Preparing... ########################################### [100%]
    1:cndrvcups-common ########################################### [100%]
    [root@localhost RPM]# rpm -ivh cndrvcups-capt-1.80-1.i386.rpm
    Preparing... ########################################### [100%]
    1:cndrvcups-capt ########################################### [100%]

    Driver is installed .
  4. Now we have to restart CUPS :


    /etc/init.d/cups restart

  5. Now type tail /var/log/messages

    [root@localhost ~]# tail /var/log/messages
    Jan 24 18:37:51 localhost perl: [RPM] cups-1.3.9-0.2mdv2009.0 installed
    Jan 24 18:40:25 localhost kernel: usb 1-1: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 6
    Jan 24 18:40:25 localhost kernel: usb 1-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
    Jan 24 18:40:25 localhost kernel: usb 1-1: New USB device found, idVendor=04a9, idProduct=2676
    Jan 24 18:40:25 localhost kernel: usb 1-1: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3
    Jan 24 18:40:25 localhost kernel: usb 1-1: Product: Canon CAPT USB Device
    Jan 24 18:40:25 localhost kernel: usb 1-1: Manufacturer: Canon
    Jan 24 18:40:25 localhost kernel: usb 1-1: SerialNumber: 0000A376H8Jd
    Jan 24 18:40:25 localhost kernel: usblp0: USB Bidirectional printer dev 6 if 0 alt 0 proto 2 vid 0x04A9 pid 0x2676
    Jan 24 18:40:25 localhost kernel: usbcore: registered new interface driver usblp

  6. Now type :
    /usr/sbin/lpadmin -p LBP2900 -m CNCUPSLBP2900CAPTK.ppd -v ccp:/var/ccpd/fifo0 -E


  7. and then
    /usr/sbin/ccpdadmin -p LBP2900 -o /dev/usb/lp0


    output :
    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 : New!!
  8. /etc/initd/ccpd start :

    /etc/init.d/ccpd start
  9. Printer is ready to print

    Status Monitor :

    to monitor printing type :

    captstatusui -P LBP2900

Re: How to Install Canon Printer lbp2900 in Ubuntu ?

To install Canon printer you need the Canon drivers Which are rpm files. If you're using Debian or Ubuntu or similar you need the 'alien' program which you can download via the package manager ('Synaptic' in Debian, 'adept' in Ubuntu?). Untar the tar-file.You only need two of the created rpm-files, namely cnijfilter-common-2.60-1.i386.rpm and cnijfilter-***-2.60-1.i386.rpm.To convert these two files with 'alien', type the following command line in the console:alien -c cnijfilter-common-2.60-1.i386.rpm cnijfilter-****-2.60-1.i386.rpm(The -c might be necessary to include scripts in the converting process.)That should create two deb-files.Install these two files by right-clicking them and choosing 'install' or something like that.Type one more command in the console:sudo /etc/init.d/cupsys restart(This is necessary to restart the printer software again after the installation.)Then configure the printer: go to 'utilities' or sth like that, and then 'printers'. Choose 'add' or similar. Select the printer model Canon ****. Find the newly installed driver file canonip4200.ppd in the path: /usr/share/cups/model/canon****.ppdSelect it and finish the configuration. Set the printer as default. That should be all. (For what ever reasons the test page didn't seem to work with me, but the normal printing does.)
