Just install it for Canon LBP2900, works.

@OramahMaalhur : I think you should add a post_install() function, same function as this other canon capt driver (see capt-src.install file) :

Because additional manual steps may be needed after the installation of the package :

/usr/bin/lpadmin -p <name> -m <corresponding ppd> -v ccp://localhost:59687 -E /usr/bin/ccpdadmin -p <name> -o udev_device

@mikhailnov, I'm not sure I get you, cups is already set in dependencies, depends=('cups') capt.rules was updated, thanks

A comment in udev rules file seems to b incorrect, systemctl status udev reports: systemd-udevd[15023]: /etc/udev/rules.d/51-capt.rules:2 Invalid key/value pair, ignoring That comment should be moved to a separate line

cups devel parts are required to build it, cups should be in dependencies p.s. thanks for an example of udev rules, I am not using Arch Linux, but this PKGBUILD was useful

Sorry for the late response, I updated the PKGBUILD. Unfortunately, I don't have this printer anymore so ping me if you want to maintain or co-maintain the package :)

requires an update: filename has changed from Canon-LBP-2900.ppd to Canon-LBP2900.ppd

Just installed it for Canon LBP3050, works flawlessly.

This is an unstable reverse engineered version of CUPS driver for CAPT drivers (LBP2900 and others, see upstream url) and has its own limitations (it doesn't support multipage printing, i.e. each page of document is printed separately with a delay).
