First performance (albeit not much) version of the open driver for printer Canon CAPT (LBP-****) out today. In contrast to proprietary drivers, open is a lightweight, requires no start daemons at boot time and not sabotaging the work of printers from other manufacturers.
When you install the drivers pay attention to choose the correct device from the list (not usb: / /, as required capt: / /) and the correct file *. ppd (it defines the low-level printer settings, and with the wrong *. ppd printer will probably all printed pages).
- completely rewritten the driver code (from C to C + +)
- Now the driver works via libusb and is bakendom for CUPS
- largely eliminated by freezing the printer when printing failures
