Can anyone guide me what to do??? I can provide u any useful output if required.

my printer LNB2900 now work in Ubuntu 11.10

Hello !

I also had this problem, already decided as follows:

1. if device /dev/usb/lp0 not found in folder - this means no driver usblp which is used for printers CANON
This situation appeared after upgrading from 11.04 to 11.10 version UBUNTU

put: lsmod | grep usblp
If it outputs nothing, load the module : sudo modprobe usblp
and try again toy view loaded modele usblp

2. Not loading this module, the problem: /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-cups-usblp.conf
view:

# cups talks to the raw USB devices, so we need to blacklist usblp to avoid
# grabbing them
blacklist usblp

itself system blocked his boot module !!!

change: #blacklist usblp
and save and reboot and control present /dev/usb/lp0

3. restart CUPS: sudo /etc/init.d/cups restart

Device /dev/usb/lp0 - it is use for printers
* Restarting Common Unix Printing System: cupsd [ OK ]
* Restarting Canon Printer Daemon for CUPS: ccpd [ OK ]

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 : Modified



4. test you printers to print. if not work may be to restart printer off-on and try again to print (need for me)
Unfortunately I still unsolved as finally ibavitsya from having to restart the printer. I do not know very well linux

5. I hope uvas already installed printer driver, if not then use the assembly h**p://nixtech.ru/datatrans/lbp2900-pkg.tar.gz , unzip the folder and run the script
type: sudo sh install-lbp2900.sh and follow .... (ask Y Y) (i am use this pack)

6. after this step im booting ubuntu and printer off-on = printer Ready to Print !!!


7. I hope this helps anyone else



PS: and another metod may be work h**p://translate.google.com.ua/translate?sl=ru&tl=en&js=n&prev=_t&hl=ru&ie=UTF-8&layout=2&eotf=1&u=http%3A%2F%2Fgnu.su%2Fnews.php%3Fextend.726
I'am not tested this ....

Great, I was trying to get started my printer for last 3 or 4 days. But result was 'zero'

Now, I can use the printer

Thanks a lot


Now, a second question. Can I use the printer without on-offing the printer or restarting the cups every time???

LPB2900 ready to work

At this point restart the printer is no longer needed. After loading UBUNTU printer ready to print. (although I had to reinstall it). Recently updated CUPS several times.
