Known issue in v2.71: bad news with this new driver, captstatusui is broken again. It says "No specified printer" everytime.

So if someone with time wants to debug this and share a patch, I'll be thankful since I don't have time to do it myself.

Canon LBP-1120 works great!
Thank You!

And everything goes like a charm with cndrvcups-capt_2.71-1_amd64.deb and cndrvcups-common_3.21-1_amd64.deb in Ubuntu 16.04 based distros.

Has anyone managed to compile from source drivers for Canon LBP (2900, ...)?
Because I do not succeed under Arch.
And because the LBP2900 printer has become useless in Arch, I'm thinking of going back to a Ubuntu-based distribution (KDE Neon or Lubuntu).
In Ubuntu everything goes right with cndrvcups-capt_2.70-1_amd64.deb and cndrvcups-common_3.20-1_amd64.deb.

At least does anyone have the download link for the (previous) AUR capt-src 2.70 package and source ?

So I have a LBP3200, is this the right driver for me?
Thanks you.

Dear Retzho, trust me I do not expect anything. I just wanted to help and contribute. I will not bother you anymore though. Take care. Bye.

My point is that they are different drivers, zeroflag. Printer compatibility is different, so if you have a printer which requires the UFR2 protocol, you'll have to install the cndrvcups-lb-* packages. If you have a printer which uses CAPT, you need this one. It's that simple. It doesn't make any sense to make this package depending on PPD files for non-compatible printers with CAPT. This is the file that provides Canon, no more, no less.

Actually the cndrcups-lb-* packages are badly named. If you download the driver, you'll see the main file is called: cndrvcups-ufr2. It's confusing calling it cndrvcups-lb since it not only supports the Canon LBP* series: https://wiki.debian.org/PrinterDriver/Canon/UFR-II

And yes, I know the package is outdated. When I made my comment, the package was already flagged out-of-date. This is AUR, noone can expect that I must update the package immediately. If you take a look to the PKGBUILD file of this package, you can imagine how time-consuming updating this package is.

Well, the current version comes only with: cndrvcups-capt-2.71-1.tar.gz and cndrvcups-common-3.21-1.tar.gz in the "Src" directory. Apparently, it misses the cndrvcups-lb-* which provides additional PPD files for many other i-Sensys printers.

Nevertheless, this package is outdated. The current version link is as follows including SHA checksums for your reference. Thanks.

As far as my understanding goes, if you need that driver you don't need this one and vice versa, zeroflag.

Hi reztho, would you mind setting "cndrvcups-lb" as an optional dependency of this package? The "cndrvcups-lb" package contains more PPD files that are necessary to install many of today's Canon printers. Cheers!
