to get my lbp2900 printer working i used the following workaround
- Installed virtualbox
(maybe this is also possible in virtualpc)
- started a virtual winxp image
- virtualbox has a remote usb-bridge to connect to usb-devices not recognised by the host-system, configure the bridge to the printer
- install lbp2900 driver
To print from office/photoshop without installing those in the virtual image, on the host system print to pdf (pdfcreator
) and print the pdf in the virtual image.
however i still hope canon
releases their x64 lbp2900 driver soon!
