There's not much info to go on. What have you tried thus far?

Have you tried searching the net? This link seems promising: Canon LBP 2900B on Ubuntu 12.04

well gutenprint does not have a driver.

http://www.unixmen.com/installation-...2900-on-linux/ for ubuntu users might work?
can't see the deb in my repo so found this which is related

http://www.canon.co.uk/Support/Consu...ownload&page=1

above link should take you to a linux download page??
otherwise cut off the last bits and search

EDIT

yeah click into the software radio button and then use the pulldowns

Canon is not known for its stellar support of Linux.

This entry at openprinting.org is not a cause for optimism, even though it cannot be considered conclusive: http://www.openprinting.org/printer/...anon-LBP_2900B

I'd keep an eye on TurboPrint. They don't currently list your printer as supported, but you can use their feedback form to request it.
