Unfortunately, the CAPT driver can be a bit of a pain, and Canon's support for Linux is, well… close to non-existent. OK, they produced a CAPT driver for Linux, but it's 'unsupported'. I tried contacting them about a CAPT issue once, but got told they don't offer support for Linux. Clearly my next printer will NOT be a Canon.

One key thing is that ccpd.service must be started after org.cups.cupsd.service, so perhaps you should look into delaying the start of ccpd.service?

My setup is a little different from yours, as I have the printer (an LBP6310dn) connected via ethernet, and it's configured on a command line only Arch server running CUPS. The connected clients (running KDE) have it installed as a remote CUPS printer, running captstatusui over SSH and X11 forwarding.

I think, I'm one step closer to get my printer working. I made new install of archlinux on computer with LXDE desktop and printer after install works :-), so problem must be in GNOME desktop packages?!? But after reboot, CUPS service is inactive (dead) and in CUPS managing printers does not work. After restart CUPS service, management for printers in localhost:631 works, but printer does not work and captstatusui says, that printer is not plugged. So I disabled automatic loading CUPS a ccpd services and reboot. After reboot I start manualy CUPS and ccpd services and printer works. Any idea? Create some UDEV rule for the printer? Why printer does not work with GNOME desktop, I dont know... :-(

Yes, setup was the same. Clean installation on computer, clean installation in VirtualBox, only one difference, GNOME desktop on computer, LXDE in VirtualBox. I have running two instances of ccpd.service, that it's correct. I'm thinking about kernel modules, with previous HP LaserJet 1020 I had some problems with usblp module, but I'm not shure, if it is a right way...

Have you followed the instructions in the wiki?

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Canon_CAPT

CAPT printers don't work without a properly running CAPT daemon. Check the status of ccpd.service.

Hi,

I have CANON LBP7018C printer, I tried this package to get working my printer, but on standalone install of archlinux with no luck. I followed instruction after make and install package well, but on standalone installation of arch printer not working, I will see job in CUPS, job is after few seconds done, but printer is idle. On instalation of archlinux in VirtualBox (host is Windows 8.1) printer works well, same way to install this package. Any idea, where is the problem?

Sorry for my English.

retho and veger,

Many thanks for your great work on this package, which continues to get better and better. This is the first time I haven't had to link /usr/lib32 libraries to /usr/lib in order to get the printer to print. Again, thanks.

capt requires extra/ghostscript in order to work and will silently fail otherwise.

Updated to version 2.70!

Thanks to veger for his contribution to the package.

While I indeed did forget to click the Flag out-of-date button, I thought I would you the courtesy of providing the link to the updated software, instead of merely flagging it as out of date and letting you hunt around for the new software as the upstream URL doesn't host it.

I'm sorry if that inconvenienced you.

reztho commented on 2015-11-04 17:05

Aerion, flagging the package out-of-date is enough.

I was aware of the new version, but it's very tedious to update the package since it has so many lines inside... so I'll update the PKGBUILD when I have time.
