Manipulating a problematic Canon CAPT driver in *nix systems

Hey Fellas,

Its been a while since I am blogging. Sorry for that. Currently I am using Debian 8.1. This is FYI !

This post is for people who have a Canon LBP**** series working printer in UNIX based systems.

If you have earlier read posts like this :

and found difficulty in manipulating ccpd - the daemon service - this post is specifically for you folks...

Canon CAPT ccpd - can print iff there are equal to or more than 2 pids...

This could be verified with the command -

sudo /etc/init.d/ccpd status 

which should show minimum of 2 pid values.

If in cases where there are less than 2 pid values, that is when the trouble starts.

You as a root user can stop the service by issuing the below command:

sudo /etc/init.d/ccpd stop

But some times this would not stop the service.

Issue this below command [1] to completely kill the service and then restart the service with the next command [2]

1. sudo pkill -9 ccpd
2. sudo /etc/init.d/ccpd restart or sudo /etc/init.d/ccpd start

After issuing the above commands - verify the status by this command related GUI

captstatusui -p LBP2900 [if your printer is LBP2900 & for other names change accordingly]

Hope this small post helps you to some extent...

If you are all facing issues with installing ccpd for your respective *nix lemme know...

Ananth D Geek !
