How to install the Canon LBP2900 on Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala) and 10.04 (Lucid Lynx)

After hours of searching and trying various methods I finally found the solution! I managed to get my Canon LBP2900 installed on Ubuntu 10.4!

From my research I know that there are plenty of people out there who would like to use their Canon-Printer with Linux. Since I am not a Linux guru my solution is based on other solutions I found in various Ubuntu- (and Linux) Forums. So here it is…

Derived from: (german) the part Laserdrucker LBP5000

Problem with Canon Product is that they don’t administer their Linux-Driver well enough and there are some wrong dependencies.


1. Switch your Printer off.

2. Make sure you don’t have the CAPT Driver Packages already installed. Otherwise uninstall first.

3. Now ensure that you have Ghostscript and the OpenPrinting Driver Interface installed on your system (this should be the case with “Karmic Koala and Lucid Lynx”). If you are not sure, type following command into a terminal:

% gs -h | grep opvp

this should output:

lj5mono ljet2p ljet3 ljet3d ljet4 ljet4d ljetplus nullpage opvp oprp pbm

if you don’t get the correct line the OpenPrinting Driver Interface is not installed and you should install it before you proceed. Click here for further instruction on how to do so.

4. I used the CAPT_Printer_Driver_for_Linux_V200_uk_EN.tar.gz from the australian Canon-Website. Download the .tar archive and unpack it.  In the folder /Driver/Debian You will find the driver packages for Ubuntu (Which derives from Debian).

First you start to install the package called *common*.deb.  (In the older Driver Version (1.80) you will encounter that there is a dependencies-problem, which you resolve by typing

sudo apt-get install -f into a terminal.)

With the new Version (2.0 see link above) you shouldn’t have any problems.

5. Then install package called  *cndrvcups*.deb.

IMPORTANT Now restart CUPS by typing:

sudo /etc/init.d/cups restart

6. To register the printer at the spooler you type:

sudo /usr/sbin/lpadmin -p [printer name] -m [PPD file name] -v ccp:/var/ccpd/fifo0 -E

For the “LBP2900” the command would look like this:

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

7. Now you have to register the printer  at the ccpd-Daemon-Setupfile

sudo /usr/sbin/ccpdadmin -p [Printer Name] -o [Printer Device Path]

For the “LBP2900” the command looks like:

sudo /usr/sbin/ccpdadmin -p LBP2900 -o /dev/usb/lp0

8. Now start the ccpd-Daemon:

sudo /etc/init.d/ccpd start

9. Happy Prinitng!

(10.) To get the printer status type:

captstatusui -P LBP2900


You have to restart the ccpd-Daemon every time you restart your Computer!

To avoid to have to start the Daemon manually you can use  the Autostart Function.

Follow these instructions:

Since the “ccpd” Daemon can only be started by “root” you have to modify the  /etc/sudoers file to let a user start the daemon.

1. Open the File by typing

sudo visudo

2. then add these lines (user= your username e.g. “steven”) :

# all users that may start ccpd as root
user ALL=NOPASSWD: /etc/init.d/ccpd start

3. and save the altered file.

Configuring Autostart

You have to open “System -> Settings -> Autostart” . Click on “Add” to open a new Autostart Program. You can call it  “daemon LBP2900“. In the command line you have to put:

sudo /etc/init.d/ccpd start

Now click on “Add” and the Service should work after the next reboot.

Add one more Program by clicking  “Add ” again. You can call it “Statusmonitor LBP2900” .


sh -c "sleep 30; /usr/bin/captstatusui -P LBP2900"

in the commandline and everything should be fine.  One more Tip: I realized that is advantageous to have the Printer switched off before you start or reboot the system.

Where is my mind…

This is an excellent way to combine one of my favorite songs with my “all-time-favorite” movie. Credits go to PrincessSamuel. The longer you life within the system, the more you feel the urge to break out…

Live long and prosper.

I feel numb…

I always knew it would happen. But it still hurts…

Everyday is a new day
I’m thankful for Every breath I take
I won’t take you for granted (I won’t take you for granted)
 So I learn from my mistakes
It’s beyond my control Sometimes it’s best to let go
Whatever happens In this lifetime So I trust in love (so I trust in love)
You have given me Peace of mind Chorus:

I feel so alive For the very first time I can’t deny you
I feel so alive I feel so alive For the very first time And I think I can fly (fly)

Sunshine upon my face (sunshine upon my face)
A new song for me to sing Tell the world How I feel inside (Tell the world how I feel inside) Even though it might Cost me everything
Now that I know this So beyond, I can’t hold this I can never Turn my back away
Now that I’ve seen you (Now that I’ve seen you)
I can never look away

Now that I know you (I could never Turn my back away)
Now that I see you (I could never look away)
Now that I know you (I could never Turn my back away)
Now that I see you (I believe no matta What they say!)

The misery index

My life
charred remains of a flame that’s burned out
my lips move but they won’t make a sound
I stand motionless, eyes to the ground
back for more
with reopened scars i remain
battered savagely, knees start to shake
I just stand there, I take it, I wait
I’m just waiting for time to erase
and the world to change
until then I will strive for nothing more
I’ll just wait for my heart to break
and arise from ash, reborn
look at me
cut my eye and allow me to see
what my life has become on my knees
I hear the screams, I watch myself bleed
but ? can’t feel a thing
what am I
but a victim unwilling to rise
wretched shell of a man and his pride
why stop living, I’m just waiting to die
my life it’s so familiar
why lie when everything’s the same
but who am I, and what am I waiting for anyway
and I will die waiting to be reborn…
