Canon Canon LBP 8II

Canon LBP-8II on Linux RH62

Looking for an operator's manual for an LBP-8.
Specifically a reference for error codes.

Also any info on making this printer work
under Linux.



The printer uses the same error codes as the HPII/III printers. All Canon and HP printers basically share the same codes. Makes it easy for us techs. Making it work with Linux is probably impossible. It was difficult enough to make it work with Windows. I used to have a Dos program that made it think it was an HPII. It worked pretty good, but it was on a 5 1/4" floppy.
It was called Laser Twin. I don't know if that would work for you, but I haven't seen it in years. If you want to know the meaning of any error codes just ask me.
