Ubuntu: My printer requires “modprobe” and “ccpd” to be started after every system restart.


In each time I start my Ubuntu 12.04 computer I need to type the following commands to get my Canon LBP 2900 printer working. Otherwise the status monitor says "Communication Error". I am using driver version 2.40.

sudo modprobe usblp   ls -l /dev/usb/lp0   sudo /etc/init.d/ccpd start   


Edit /etc/modules and append usblp. This will load the usblp module at boot time.

To get /etc/init.d/ccpd to start, you will need to have links to the /etc/rc?.d directories. Read man update-rc.d and man insserv and look for an LSB (Linux Standard Base, see Wikipedia for LSB) header in /etc/init.d/ccpd (begins with ### BEGIN INIT INFO). I know nothing about ccpd.
