Can't install a driver for my printer

I can't install a driver for my printer canon LBP 2900B what should I do ?? I have tried almost everything

I did a simple google search on the printer and found this post. You may want to see if this works for you.

I usually stick with Brother printers/scanners as they have given Linux the best support over the years. Others, not so much

How exactly are you trying to install the printer. Please be specific, we aren't mindreaders (yet) :wink:

See this: printing - Canon LBP 2900b is not Working in ubuntu 20.04 - Ask Ubuntu
It points to source of Canon Printer Driver.

sudo apt install mindreader.

Done :face_with_hand_over_mouth:


Zabadabadoo's link is the solution. Personally never had an issue with Canon multifunction printers, you just have to download the Canon Linux drivers, just like Brother. I always prefer Canon to other brands on any OS.
