F9: Canon LBP2900 no go: "usblp1: error -32 reading printer status"

Hi all,

I am trying to get a Canon LBP2900 laser printer working under F9.

Alas, the driver is (apparently) closed and not included in the Caps package, which might be a reason to avoid this printer, but be that as it may, one can download a Linux driver easily enough from Canon:


These are the latest RPMs:

2007-12-03 08:49 cndrvcups-capt-1.60-1.i386.rpm
2007-12-03 08:49 cndrvcups-common-1.60-1.i386.rpm

Once installed, CAPS automatically recognizes the printer and selects what appears to be the correct driver:

Canon LBP2900 CAPT ver.1.5

Likewise, the printer shows up properly in dmesg:

usb 1-4: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 26
usb 1-4: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
usblp1: USB Bidirectional printer dev 26 if 0 alt 0 proto 2 vid 0x04A9 pid 0x2676
usb 1-4: New USB device found, idVendor=04a9, idProduct=2676
usb 1-4: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3
usb 1-4: Product: Canon CAPT USB Device
usb 1-4: Manufacturer: Canon
usb 1-4: SerialNumber: 0000A380HGkZ

but if I try a test page, nothing happens. The only indication that something is wrong is this error message repeatedly displayed in dmesg:

usblp1: error -32 reading printer status

Any ideas what is going on here?
