***SOLVED - see post #5***
I installed the driver after downloading it from canon
website and compiling it myself for 64-bit.
Before I installed it followed the instructions in the readme file (added the '/etc/init.d/ccpd start' command to the /etc/rc.local file and installed compat-libstdc++-33.)
These are the commands I used (per the instructions):
# rpm -ivh cndrvcups-common-2.00-2.x86_64.rpm
# rpm -ivh cndrvcups-capt-2.00-2.x86_64.rpm
# /etc/init.d/cups restart
# /usr/sbin/lpadmin -p LBP3250 -m CNCUPSLBP3250CAPTK.ppd -v ccp://localhost:59687 –E
# /usr/sbin/ccpdadmin -p LBP3250 -o /dev/usb/lp0
# /etc/init.d/ccpd start
I can see the printer in the Printing window, when I open its properties and try to print a test page it is submitted to the jobs list with the status "Procesing" and nothing happens after that (it doesn't print).
If I try to print a Self-Test Page I get an error:
Cups server error
There was an error during the CUPS operation: 'client-error-document-format-not-supported'.
I'm attaching cups error log.
Has anyone been able to make canon
lbp printers work on 64-bit linux? I tried it on ubuntu and it also didn't work.
