Canon LBP 2900 printer does not want to install on UBUNTU. How do I get it to work?

Asked by Baywatch on 2010-05-21

The Printer was picked up by Ubuntu, but it does not have the Canon LBP 2900 on the list of printers provided. Where do I go to get them, or what should I do? I need to be able to print for this is a business printer.

A business printer? I guess, you made a mistake. If you need a business printer, you have to get an HP printer - and nothing else.

I guess you can't find a driver for your printer. The web site canon.com doesn't support your printer.

Hi,

I succeeded to make the Canon LBP 2900 printer to work with hardy 8.04 by following instructions given on the Ubuntu help web site.

You can follow theses instructions carefully:
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/HardwareSupportComponentsPrinters/CanonPrinters/Canon_LBP_2900

For most of the commands, you can do copy & paste.

Hope that helps
