Last weekend I searched for a driver for a Canon LBP 2000 printer to get it working with Linux Mint 13. I knew from earlier installations that it is possible with the driver from another printer, but I could not remember which one it was. And I couldn’t find the hint in the web. I found out nonetheless and for any one who has the same problem like me, this may help: The Canon LBP 2000 is working with the driver for the HP LaserJet 5100 printer.
This has worked on a Linux Mint 12 and openSuse 11.4 installation. It should be completly distribution independent. So no matter wether you are using Fedora, Arch, Debian, Ubuntu, Mint or whatever, try this HP driver.
