Question Canon LBP-800 on Linux (OpenSuSE 11.2)


This is an very old question 'cause this is an old printer, but I can't find, a solution... can anyone help me?
I have a Canon LBP-800 and printing is practically the only thing I use Windows for, and it's very annoying...
P.S.
I've tried so many things but only can start printer engine and that way I can only damage it...
Is there anyone in the whole world???

Start printer engine? Wait, what? Do you mean you are having trouble starting cups or cupsd?

I don't now so many about cups or cupsd, because of that I can't tell you much. I'll tell you everything I know.
I think I have problem with the driver (because I've 2 drivers for Ubuntu, but I don't like Ubuntu - everyone has favorite distro - and tried it only in openSuSE, but why should that be a problem linux is linux, distro is something like colour to me).

BTW I've looked for solutions everywhere, and this is so close to the solution, but there is problem...
And this is with all links with "driver download" for lbp 800 on openprinting.org

Interesting signature... This is mine - for this thread...
_____________________________________________________________________
I've searched google from one end to another but I don't understand what you have on mind with search function?
1.If you think I do not search on google you're wrong, but that is always possibility that I do not searched enough...
2.If you think I've had not searched on google you're completely wrong!

And if it is the second I'll not mark my thread as solved because it is not

Nice signature. I didn't know that my signature was directed to you. Stop assuming things, it will get you nowhere.

As far as your problem, I came across this:
http://www.openprinting.org/printer/Canon/Canon-LBP-800
http://forums.linux-foundation.org/read.php?25,3062

So apparently, according to what I have found, and what you have said in your signature in regards to this thread, is the following:

1. You have searched everywhere and found nothing.
2. After learning that there are no open source drivers for the version you need, you still insist someone knows about open source drivers for this device.

Your arrogance offends me. You expect to come here and get the answers to everything.... If you are so desperate to get this printer working, how about you program the drivers for it? Seems logical to me....

Excuse me, please accept my apologies.
I have not been assuming things... I just realize your signature is so appropriate for this thread and inspired me to make mine, because I was tired of googling everywhere and going nowhere with that printer, it's the only thing for me to keep windows and it is anoying, when I have everything on linux.
Thank you for your post I'll try your links, maybe you're better googler than me
P.S.
Respect for your signature again

Again dead end...
Oh I'm so tired...
Am I the only person with this old printer and linux in the whole wide world???
All links are from years ago (at least 3) and all the same going nowhere...
I have mentioned that I have 2 drivers for ubuntu from few years ago, but than I didn't knew how to use linux, for such things, and maybe I do not know even now... The link with the forum goes to that second driver.
I will try to understand cups better maybe it is the real problem.
P.S.
I am thinking of mark thread as solved and go with new one with cups. But tomorrow. Now I'm so tired.
This thread is closed just have to make new one if I do not realize what is cups, cupsd etc.

Hello,

in order to configure cups, you'll have to open the adress
Code:
http://localhost:631
in a browser. There you can configure your printers. Be sure that the cupsd-daemon is running, you can check this with
Code:
ps -e | grep cups

Markush beat me to it. Good luck though, hope you can figure something out. And for the record, my signature isn't meant for you personally....

Thank you both!

@corp769
I only felt, for a moment like it is meant to me because I was tired of going nowhere with printer.
Than I realized that it isn't pointed to me but to everyone. Like I said: "Respect for signature"

Thumbs up

Hello friends
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
I've just having in my hands my first page printed on linux with my old and yet good printer
I've mannage it throw the cups via
Code:
http://localhost:631
and the driver from this page.
Only weird thing is that I have had this driver form the beginning, when I've started the tread, but never can mannage printer to work via Yast?!

Special thanks to corp769 and markush
Respect to you both, specially for your concern and patience!

The only thing that happends after succesfull printing is an error massage:
Code:
Print Error
There was a problem processing document 'cups.png'(job 9)
or something like that...
For now on I just "delete" the job in
Code:
Document Print Status
and everything is all right...
I have my documents printed but with this error.
Thank you again.

P.S.
This error happens when I print something from my computer, but there wasn't error when print test page from cupsd...
