Oh! great finally, I got the print out .........
(here is the complete story) I think, as I have done lots of experiment,
thus I have to refresh the whole thing, thus I removed completely cups and
cups-common. And reinstall them freshly. Then followed the following link,
which I think is most suited as mentioned for LBP XXXXX
It worked, but as soon as I restart the PC (Here I would again like to
mention that I am using Ubuntu 10.04 and Canon LBP2900B, where as, at the
bigening of the document it says that LBP2900 is not tested at Lucid) I got
another printer called LBP2900-2. With that, previously installed printer
LBP2900 also stoped working.
Further following the document I tried to uninstall the hal-cups-utils
*$sudo apt-get remove hal-cups-utils
But I found that hal-cups-utils is already not installed.
I delete the printer with following command
$ lpadmin -x LBP2900-2 && sudo /etc/init.d/ccpd restart && sudo
And printer started working, but every time I restart the PC,
LBP2900-2 automatic install and printer doesn't worked.
Is there any solution for this ??
