More Experience on Canon LBP2900B

I have found a few workarounds by which the Canon LBP2900B works reasonably.
  • On Fedora 15, we need to restart the ccpd after it has booted
    • $ sudo systemctl restart ccpd.service
  • If the printer is out of paper, the print job is stuck. 
    • The button on the printer seems to have no effect
    • Cancel the print job
    • Enable/resume the printer
  • Printing from some applications fails (e.g.printing an image, Adobe's Document Viewer). Workaround was:
    • Print to a pdf file
    • Print the pdf file using a Linux application(evince or okular)
