Hi,

you need the ppd file corresponding to this printer. Then configure cups to use that file.

Cheers,

Evo2.

There may be no solution at all for "Canon LBP 2900B" :
http://www.openprinting.org/printer/...anon-LBP_2900B

http://www.canon-europe.com/Support/...ystem_drivers/
→ click "Linux" →
""Canon currently only provides support for PIXMA products
and the Linux operating system by providing basic drivers"".
