After clean installation of Ubuntu 16.04 my Canon 2900 refused to print. I found out a solution and will now share here with my experience.
Standard method to install driver doesn't work. To install driver manually I downloaded and unpacked them from the official web-site of Canon.
The next step was to choose between the 32- or 64-bit driver. First my decision was to use 64-bit driver, because my OS is also 64-bit. But it was a mistake, 64-bit driver refused to work. So I choose 32-bit driver, unpacked and installed two packages in the following order:
Then I registered the printer in OS by taping in the terminal:
sudo /etc/init.d/cups restart
sudo lpadmin -p LBP2900 -m CNCUPSLBP2900CAPTK.ppd -v ccp://localhost:59687 -E
sudo ccpdadmin -p LBP2900 -o /dev/usb/lp0
sudo update-rc.d ccpd defaults
Ppd file name "CNCUPSLBP2900CAPTK.ppd" is only for LBP2900 model. For others models you should use another code:
|Printer Name||PPD File Name|
|LBP7200Cdn (network mode)||CNCUPSLBP7200CCAPTK.ppd|
|LBP3150 / LBP3108 / LBP3100||CNCUPSLBP3150CAPTK.ppd|
|LBP3100 / LBP3108 / LBP3150||CNCUPSLBP3150CAPTK.ppd|
|LBP3010 / LBP3018 / LBP3050||CNCUPSLBP3050CAPTK.ppd|
After the printer appears in menu I marked him as default by right click. All these time the printer must be turned off.
Then I reboot and printer start work.
But after that appears a new problem. When I shuttdown my computer it hangs during 5 minutes. It was caused by ccpd service. So I run:
sudo systemctl edit ccpdand added new two lines to empty file:
sudo systemctl daemon-reload
systemctl show ccpd -p TimeoutStopUSec
and it shows that the delay was shorted. Next reboot took only several seconds.
P.S.: I'm working on improving my English and Linux skills. And I'll be very happy if you pointed out mistakes.
Thanks a lot bro... 32bit driver does work like a charm on 64bit OS... tried a lot with 64 on 64bit... but no success of fresh installation.. 32bit worked.ВідповістиВидалити
