This manual describes how to get Canon LBP-810/LBP-1120 printer to work under Arch Linux.
 
{{Note | You must use an USB cable to connect your printer. If it only has a parallel port, I'm sorry but my driver won't work. [http://www.boichat.ch/nicolas/capt/]}}
 
 
 
=Requirements=
 
 
 
Install the following packages with [[pacman]]:
 
 
 
*cups foomatic-db foomatic-filters;
 
*[https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=42293 capt-lbp]. Package is available in the [[AUR]].
 
 
 
# pacman -S cups foomatic-db foomatic-filters
 
# pacman -U capt-lbp-0.4-2-i686.pkg.tar.xz
 
 
 
=Configuration=
 
 
 
{{Note |Before going any further see the [[cups]] page and check if the user you are currently logged as (not root) is in the group {{ic|lp}} }}
 
 
 
Verify group:
 
 
 
# grep lp /etc/group
 
 
 
See if the printer is connected to the computer by checking {{ic|dmesg}} and {{ic|lsusb}} command output it should tell you something like this:
 
 
 
# Bus 005 Device 002: ID 04a9:260a Canon, Inc. CAPT Printer
 
 
 
After that start the CUPS daemon:
 
 
 
# /etc/rc.d/cupsd start
 
 
 
Add the printer using {{ic|lpadmin}}, it should be located at {{ic|/dev/usb/lpX}} where X is the corresponding number for printer. check if the {{ic|usblp}} kernel module is loaded again by using the {{ic|dmesg}} command
 
 
 
# lpadmin -p <printer name> -v <device URI> -P /usr/share/cups/model/Canon-LBP-810-capt.ppd -E
 
 
 
Device URI like {{ic|/dev/usb/lpX}}.
 
 
 
If you recieve:
 
 
 
lpadmin: File device URIs have been disabled! To enable, see the FileDevice directive in "/etc/cups/cupsd.conf".
 
 
 
Add the following to {{ic|/etc/cups/cupsd.conf}}:
 
 
 
...
 
# Allow new printers to be added using device URIs "file:/filename"
 
FileDevice Yes
 
...
 
 
 
If you have done the previous steps then the printer should be visible from the web based CUPS configruation tool http://localhost:631
 
 
 
Change the '''DeviceURI''' section in {{ic|/etc/cups/printers.conf}} to
 
 
 
...
 
DeviceURI file:///dev/null
 
...
 
 
 
and {{ic|/etc/capt.conf}} to match the corresponding device e.g {{ic|/dev/usb/lpX}}. If the file {{ic|/etc/capt.conf}} is only available on record, then change the permissions: {{ic|chmod o+w /etc/capt.conf}}.
 
 
 
And finally restart CUPS:
 
 
 
# /etc/rc.d/cupsd restart
