Thread: Canon LBB5100 Capt Driver x86_64

  1. #1

    Default Canon LBB5100 Capt Driver x86_64

    I'm adding this post here, because I've spent ages trying to get 64bit drivers or drivers compiled for this printer.

    It may be obvious how to do this to the opensuse community (couldn't find much out there), but just in case this helps anyone.

    1st. I still haven't got a reliable working printer driver direct on linux.

    2nd. I am currently using the driver via smb to a windows box. But it's better than throwing away the stupid box.

    Okay there is no x86_64 driver for the capt drivers, that I could find. But you can download the standard linux drivers, which also contain the source.

    The easiest way to get a 64bit driver is to unpack the drivers.
    You will find a directory Src. In there are two source packages.
    Copy both to /usr/src/packages/SOURCE

    unpack both in a temporary directory.

    Enter the *common* one first.
    run rpmbuild --bb cndrvcups-common.spec
    this will build a 64bit rpm in the /usr/src/packages/RPMS/x86_64 directory
    rpm -ivh [new.rpm] replace with correct name, the one you created

    Enter the *capt* directory now (where you unpacked the source code)
    run rpmbuild --bb cndrvcapt-cups.spec
    this will build another 64bit rpm in the /usr/src/packages/RPMS/x86_64 directory
    rpm -ivh (new2.rpm) replace with correct name, the second one created

    I can't say which other packages you need to compile and build all of this, but you will need the c++ compilers, and various -devel packages. I would just add them via yast as you go along.

    Anyway off to work out how to get this working directly on linux reliably.

    you write

    Canon LBB5100
    but you actually mean

    Canon LBP5100
    ?

    If I can make some suggestions?

    I would recommend you go to this page

    Canon CAPT Printer Driver for Linux

    and download, from near the bottom of the page

    Manual guide-capt-1.8xE.tar.gz 271.19 Kb.
    I downloaded it to my desktop; right clicked and used the offer of "file roller" to unpackage; that created a directory called guide-capt-1.8xE and when I open that there is a manual_contents.html and if you click on that, you get a marvellous howto from Canon;

    one thing you will note is you need ghostscript installed before installing any Canon printers;

    I would urge you to do the above, and read it carefully; it looks like once one has that mastered, one works through the steps they advise; and by copying and pasting the commands, into a terminal, things should work; after making symbolic links: see below;

    also read a thread that reports a successful install of the LBP2900

    Canon lbp 2900 - openSUSE Forums

    nag3gul also used a 64 bit system, and created symbolic links to his 64bit libraries;

    as you will note Canon says its drivers are designed for 32 bit systems; so the symbolic links tell the system, that is looking in the 32bit, to go look in the 64 bit;

    let us know how you get along

    Default Re: Canon LBP5100 Capt Driver x86_64

    Okay yes I meant the Canon LBP5100 Colour Laser Printer.

    My point of posting was - you can't get the x86_64 bit drivers to download for linux for this printer.

    I have downloaded the source code. I have tried to compile it.
    I have installed the 32bit versions, and done all the lib linking.

    BUT All I wanted to say somewhat unclearly was you can build your own 64bit drivers very easily. The output 2 64bit RPMS install all the required drivers and bin files in the right places. And it works. You just need to run the rpmbuild command against the two source trees, to generate two x86_64 bit drivers in rpm form for installation. 1.80.

    This was a tip for people like me, who have read the ubuntu forums, and the LBP2900 posts. No one mentioned just rpmbuild the source!

    The next part I can't get working is having the Canon on a USB network hub. I can print to it via a windows SMB share.

    Default Re: Canon LBB5100 Capt Driver x86_64 11.1

    Canon laser LBP5100 on OpenSuse 11.1. Pulled information from ubuntu forums and from here for canon machines. I've summarised my steps and also how to build the 64bit drivers if you want.

    ------------------------------
    Download from Canon
    Canon Europe - i-SENSYS Linux Support

    for the LBP5100
    LBP5100

    Download the 1.80 Driver

    [important disclaimer - through laziness I just used the root command, and just added sudo below - apologies if I get it wrong]

    gunzip CAPTDRV180.tar.gz
    tar xvf CAPTDRV180.tar

    You will have a CANON_UK folder
    sub folder Driver, Doc, Src
    ==============================
    For 32bit users

    cd CANON_UK/Driver/RPM

    sudo rpm -ivh *.rpm
    ===============================

    For 64bit users
    cd CANON_UK/Src

    cp cndrvcups-capt-1.80-1.tar.gz /usr/src/packages/SOURCES
    cp cndrvcups-common-1.80-1.tar.gz /usr/src/packages/SOURCES
    gunzip cndrvcups-capt-1.80-1.tar.gz
    tar xvf cndrvcups-capt-1.80-1.tar
    gunzip cndrvcups-common-1.80-1.tar.gz
    tar xvf cndrvcups-common-1.80-1.tar


    The next part, I can't tell what you have on your system. So you may need to add bits until it compiles. Basically you need the C compilers. Various -devel packages. I think a list of these can be found in the canon docs. I added some via YAST->Software Management

    cd cndrvcups-common-1.80
    rpmbuild -bb cndrvcups-common.spec
    assuming you have the required libs, you will get in
    /usr/src/packages/RPMS/x86_64
    cndrvcups-common-1.80-1.x86_64.rpm


    sudo rpm -ivh /usr/src/packages/RPMS/x86_64/cndrvcups-common-1.80-1.x86_64.rpm


    cd ../cndrvcups-capt-1.80
    rpmbuild --bb cndrvcups-capt.spec
    once again in /usr/src/packages/RPMS/x86_64
    cndrvcups-capt-1.80-1.x86_64.rpm

    sudo rpm -ivh /usr/src/packages/RPMS/x86_64/cndrvcups-capt-1.80-1.x86_64.rpm

    You now have the drivers installed.

    Adding a printer

    sudo /etc/init.d/ccpd restart

    • Goto CUPS printer management
    • Add printer
    • Give it a name, location, description. (Remember the name)
    • Next select the protocol.

    If installed you should get a list of Canon Priter Daemon (yes Priter) #1 to #8
    • select one of these
    • Select canon for manufacturer
    • Select Canon LBP5100 CAPT (UK) (en) for model. (Note the new ones have no dash LBP-Xxxx and are grouped below the LBP-Xxxx ones)
    • add printer


    Some posts say you need to do this
    where LBP5100 is the name given to the printer above

    sudo /usr/sbin/lpadmin -p LBP5100 -m CNCUPSLBP5100CAPTK.ppd -v ccp:/var/ccpd/fifo0 -E

    But I think you can skip that

    next

    sudo /usr/sbin/ccpdadmin -p [name above] -o /dev/usb/lp0

    e.g.
    so if you named you printer LBP5100 then
    sudo /usr/sbin/ccpdadmin -p LBP5100 -o /dev/usb/lp0

    The /dev/usb/lp0 assumes you have only connected one usb printer to the system. You can check /var/log/messages to see which usb port is connected to the canon. Look for the canon printer being recognised. Suse adds it to the /dev/usblp0 device, which is linked to the /dev/usb/lp0.

    sudo /etc/init.d/ccpd restart

    ps ax | grep cap
    you should see a capmon program with fifo0 to lp0 parameters

    Try a test page, should work

    thanks very much for this; sorry if I misread your first post; the key phrase in your post #3 was

    And it works
    !!

    so if you have the 64bit system printing to your LBP, well done;and thanks very much for the big contribution of your posting;
    everyone will appreciate the very nice layout of your howto; you seem to have a fair bit of acquired linux knowledge behind your post; welcome to the forum

    Default Re: Canon LBB5100 Capt Driver x86_64 11.1

    Sorry all, for adding to this, I wanted to correct and add some more to this, and couldn't edit it. Also although the post is long it is a relatively straightforward procedure.

    Specifically for a Canon laser LBP5100 on OpenSuse 11.1. Pulled information from ubuntu forums and from here for canon machines. I've summarised my steps and also how to build the 64bit drivers if you want.

    However you can replace 5100 with some of the other lasershot capt printers and should get the same result. LBP5000 LBP3600 LBP3500 LBP3310 LBP3100 LBP2900 LBP1120 LBP1210 to name a few.

    Some posts say you need to do this
    where LBP5100 is the name given to the printer above

    sudo /usr/sbin/lpadmin -p LBP5100 -m CNCUPSLBP5100CAPTK.ppd -v ccp:/var/ccpd/fifo0 -E


    But I think you can skip that, however if you did chose the step above note that the fif0 part corresponds to the Canon Printer Daemon #1.

    fifo0..fifo7 = Daemon #1 to #8

    next

    sudo /usr/sbin/ccpdadmin -p [name above] -o /dev/usb/lp0

    e.g.
    so if you named you printer LBP5100 then
    sudo /usr/sbin/ccpdadmin -p LBP5100 -o /dev/usb/lp0

    The /dev/usb/lp0 assumes you have only connected one usb printer to the system. You can check /var/log/messages to see which usb port is connected to the canon. Look for the canon printer being recognised. Suse adds it to the /dev/usblp0 device, which is linked to the /dev/usb/lp0.

    ps ax | grep cap
    you should see a capmon program with fifo0 to lp0 parameters

    Try a test page, should work

    ==================================

    Autostart

    Now the following is new to me.
    Previously on Suse all I had to do was create a symbolic link S99Name in the /etc/init.d/rc5.d directory to have a script startup on boot.

    e.g. I would have done
    cd /etc/init.d/rc5.d
    ln -s ../ccpd S99ccpd
    ln -s ../ccpd K99ccpd


    Now I have been trying to do so, no luck. The only way I got it to run was to edit /etc/init.d/ccpd

    and add a header (below) to the top of the file
    I use nano, but use any editor you wish


    sudo nano /etc/init.d/ccpd
    or sudo gedit /etc/init.d/ccpd
    or sudo kate /etc/init.d/ccpd

    copy paste and add

    #! /bin/sh
    #
    # Author :
    #
    # /etc/init.d/ccpd
    #
    # startup script for Canon Printer Daemon for CUPS (ccpd)
    #
    #
    ### BEGIN INIT INFO

    # Description: Start ccpd to provide spooling and printing files
    # functionality for local and remote printers. Even required if

    ### END INIT INFO


    end of section

    save the file

    next have suse insert the service

    cd /etc/init.d
    sudo insserv -v ccpd


    You should see a list of services. Scroll the list to check that ccpd was added and no errors.

    That should be it, on a reboot you can check
    ps ax | grep cap
    you should see a capmon program with fifo0 to lp0 parameters

    Default Canon LBP5100 Capt Driver x86_64 howto install

    tremendous; you have laid it out very well for others to follow; not only have you given the howto for the 64bit, but you have added the howto for repeated use: should be very helpful for others; many thanks; you seem very knowledgable and hopefully will have the time to give advice to others on printers;

    can I ask you one thing:

    you say

    You can check /var/log/messages to see which usb port is connected to the canon
    on our system I get

    Could not open the file /var/log/messages.You do not have permission to open this file
    Would you advise a newbie to enter either

    gnomesu gedit /var/log/messages
    or
    kdesu gedit /var/log/messages
    ?

    You caught me. I am someone that on the console, takes the shortcut and is on root.

    Your comments above are spot on and apply to the editing of the /etc/init.d/ccpd file also.

    sudo nano /var/log/messages
    (use CTRL-W to search)

    kdesu kate /var/log/messages
    (use CTRL-F to search)

    gnomesu gedit /var/log/messages
    (use CTRL-F to search)

    look for canon

    example
    Mar 11 22:14:26 linux-qusm kernel: usb 2-1: Product: Canon CAPT USB Device
    Mar 11 22:14:26 linux-qusm kernel: usb 2-1: Manufacturer: Canon
    Mar 11 22:14:26 linux-qusm kernel: usb 2-1: SerialNumber: 0000198ADCab

    Mar 11 22:14:26 linux-qusm kernel: usbcore: registered new interface driver usblp


    it is the usblp0 that tells you which port. In my experience it is likely to be usblp0 if you only have one usb printer attached at one time.


    ---------------

    As an aside, I've been using linux for quite a few years now, and almost converted all of my own systems to non-windows (1 left). But the knowledge has been gained from various information on the net. I thought it's about time I joined in too.

    that's great; excellent to have you on the forum; thanks very much; I have been intrigued by the LBP printers for a while; trying to help others on them; I saw a very good price on one, and as our printer is starting to fade, I am tempted to get one, and try to install; I may run it in tandem with an inkjet, so I am well seek your advice configuring it if I get into usb1 or other problems !!
