If you don't have the driver, you can get it here:
http://driverscollection.com/?H=LBP2900&By=Canon

This website gives instructions for installing:
http://www.unixmen.com/index.php?opt...rials&Itemid=2

Where it tells you to start with "su -", the Ubuntu equivalent is "sudo bash".

I did tell you not to use "su -", but "sudo bash"!
