By default, the Canon Printer driver not available in Ubuntu. However, Canon kindly provide Linux drivers for their inkjet printers.
After hours of searching and trying various methods I finally found the solution! I managed to get my Canon LBP2900 installed on Ubuntu 11.4!
These instructions will help get your LBPxxxx Canon Printer driver installed and automatically starting with monitor on:
- Ubuntu 11.04 – Natty
